3 Big FAQs About Stump Grinding Services for Tree Stump Removal

While many of our customers have heard of stump grinding before they hire Doug’s Tree Service for their tree removal project, they still have many questions. These are some of the most frequently asked.

What Is Left Behind After Stump Grinding?

The short answer to this question is “a pile of mulch,” which you can use around your yard and garden or ask us to remove completely.

Stump grinding equipment utilizes a blade that pulverizes the tree stump and surface roots near your former tree’s base. This creates a pile of shredded wood and soil that may take up more physical space than the stump itself, at least at first.

Will the Tree Grow Back After Stump Grinding?

Depending on the species of tree you had removed, you may notice shoots appearing from the area of your ground tree stump. Mowing over these shoots or cutting them back with a saw may be necessary for a time. Eventually, the remaining root system from your former tree will use up its remaining energy, and the shoots will stop appearing.

Is It Okay to Leave the Tree Stump Instead of Grinding It?

Yes, though, you should be aware that the stump will decay over time. The decomposing stump may become unsightly or create an uneven area in your lawn that can be difficult to mow around. Additionally, the stump will be more likely to send up new growth and shoots for years into the future versus a ground stump.
