Stump Grinding and Removal Hobart 

While having tree stumps all over your Hobart yard is not a good look, there are other reason why you should avail yourselves of our Stump Grinding and Removal Services. Tree stumps that are just left behind are dangerous; they can cause injury if you are not aware of them, and they can be particularly dangerous to children running around.
 
Tree stumps make it harder to maintain your yard; think how difficult they are to steer your lawnmower around. Plus, stumps decay, and as they do, termites become attracted to them, and this can cause you problems elsewhere on your property and your home. Smaller trees can also being to sprout from the left behind stump, and that cause competition between the new regrowth and the nearby plants and trees for the stuff they need to grow, like sunlight and water.

Stump Grinding Hobart

However, removing tree stumps in a complex and sometimes difficult process. It may not be practical, and could also prove impossible. For example, your tree stump might have a complex root system stretching out far around your property, interacting with other trees. Removing such a root system could prove impossible without impacting and hurting the other trees on your property.
 
For such situations, we would suggest grinding down your stumps instead. But that’s not the only circumstance when grinding it down could be more beneficial than removing it.
 
But first, what is the difference between grinding and removal? And what are the benefits between one and the other?
 
The main difference between the two services is what happens to the tree roots. As you might expect with the term stump removal, the entire stump, tree roots included, is removed and taken away. On the other hand, the grinding option uses a stump grinder to grind down the stump until it is below the level of the surrounding ground, but will leave the tree roots intact.
 
Grinding has benefits. It is quicker, cheaper and leaves your yard cleaner. Removal is more difficult, takes longer, and leaves your yard with a big hole where the roots had been that you now have to fill in.
 
However, removal does have its benefits. The tree roots are removed, so there is no chance of regrowth, which is possible with grinding, which leaves the roots to decay underground.
