Tree Stump Removal Adelaide
Why are tree stumps removed ?
Stumps are removed to improve the aesthetics of the area. Stumps that are left in the ground look unsightly and restrict future use of the surrounding ground area. This can limit any plans for future planting.
Stumps can also attract termites or fungal pathogens. Stumps can also sometimes be a trip hazard.
How are stumps removed ?
After the tree has been cut to near ground level, one of our three stump grinders will gnaw away at the wooden stump, turning it into woodchips.
Depending on the size of the grinder used, we can achieve depths of up to 600mm below ground level.
In most cases, a stump grinder will complete a stump within one hour.
The resultant woodchips can be used as mulch in your garden or removed from the site if you prefer, subject to prior arrangement.
Which Stump Removal Machine ?
Our Large stump grinder is used for stumps over 60cm diameter
The medium stump grinder is used for stumps under 60cm diameter
The midget stump grinder is used for strumps under 20cm diameter
Although the medium and midget grinders can remove any size stump, they will take longer to do the job.
