Frequently asked questions

Epsom Salt can kill any regrowth, but the tree stump will still remain; the only way to truly remove a tree stump is to remove it with a stump grinder.
An average tree stump should take no more that an hour to remove, this would include ground prep and pre machinery checks “teeth sharpening” and erecting safety guards to contain flying debris.
The burning of tree stumps is not an effective method to completely remove a tree stump, the volume of fuel and time needed would not be appropriate not to mention the impact to the surrounding area.
In order to stop any regrowth some over the counter chemicals may work but only in the case of some tree species, these would be mostly garden shrubs. The use of root kill or branded chemicals like stump remover will have no effect in most cases.
The species of a tree will be the deciding factor of how quickly a tree stump will break down once the tree has been felled; the oldest known tree stump is in eastern California’s white Mountains and is believed to approximant 4,8050 years old.
A tree stump depth can vary from tree species, but most would be approximately 400 – 600mm from surface level; Our stump grinders are capable of removing any size of tree stump at any depth.
Not only do tree stumps look unattractive in a garden or outdoor space but they also play host to parasites that can compromise neighbouring trees and shrubs.
Bigger the better when it comes to grinding out a tree stump, the more power the easier it is on the operator and less strain on the machine. Stump grinders come in many shapes and sizes form a pedestrian stump grinder that requires an operator to physically move the stump grinder over the stump to more larger stump grinders that are often self-driven and operated by an operator using manual controls.
A chainsaw has little use when removing a tree stump, you may see chainsaws being used to cut through lateral roots, in these cases the saw becomes blunt very quickly as its not designed to cut though tiny particles stone and soil.
In most cases it would take an hour to remove a tree stump, that would include prepping the area around the tree stump, safety checks for utilities, erecting safety guards to contain flying debris and then the clear up.
After a tree stump has been removed only the grindings will remain these are made up of a fine wood chip and soil, they are then backfilled into where the stump once stood and levelled, in some cases the hole that remains is left empty to accommodate the replanting of a new tree.
It would not be advisable as the grindings may be the result of an acidic tree that wouldn’t make a good start for young grass roots; we would recommend that a topsoil be applied to ensure that any new grass would take to the soil conditions.
Professional stump grinders start off at around £8,000.00 to as much as £70,000.00; there are smaller stump grinder on the market form China but these will not be up to the task of removing a stump bigger than a cereal bowl.
Prior to stump grinding the stump would be lowered by the operator with a chainsaw, this speeds up the stump griding process and in turn creates less of an impact on the stump grinder as well as less chippings as a result of grinding out the stump.
If you need to remove a tree stump with minimal ground disturbance to the surrounding area, then stump removal with the use of a stump grinder and trained operator is the most efficient way.
As long as the root plate is attached to the stump absorbing moister and nutrients form the soil there may still be regrowth in some species of trees.
In the case of a large tree stump the root plate will be substantial, we attend many building sites all over London where builders have used diggers to try and dig out the stump that has resulting in some cases days of lost work hours and due to the root plate being lifted it has resulted in damage to the surround area. The safest most efficient way to remove a large tree stump will be with the use of a stump grinder and trained operator.
