The basics of stump removal
There are different types of stump removal processes that we use; mainly stump grinding and stump removal by excavation. StumpMaster stump removal in Coquitlal does not recommend the “home” method of drilling holes in the stump and pouring saltpeter into the holes due to the poison being used, as well as the long time (measured in months) that this method takes to be effective.
Let’s start with stump grinding. Stump grinding requires a special machine that grinds the stump down below the soil line, at times up to 12 inches deep. This means you don’t need a lot of extra fill, as the stump grindings mix with the soil to become fertile mulch.
Advantages of stump grinding:
• Quicker and less labor intensive to remove
• No large hole to fill
• Environmentally friendly
The stump itself becomes mulch and is ready to be re-used.
• You may have a sprout from the root system
• Root decay
Stump removal by excavation, on the other hand, entails the use of heavy equipment, and your stump is either dug or pulled out of the ground. This can cause problems with surrounding root systems and it also means that we will need to fill up the hole left behind.
Advantages of stump excavation:
• Root system completely removed
• Replanting easy
• No health hazards
• Large hole after removal
• Labor intensive
• Not environmentally friendly
• Costs more money
