Stump Grinding in Durham
Stump grinding is the process where the stump of a tree that has been previously felled is taken out. Generally after tree felling a few inches of the trunk and the root structure are retained in the ground, making the surrounding space unusable together with potentially providing a habitat for pests or harbouring tree diseases such as honey fungus. If your garden has stumps in the earth, having them cleared could open up the space, delivering added space that you could use to increase your lawn area or create new areas to lay patio or decking.
Competent stump grinding firms can get rid of stumps of any proportion. The method commonly comprises slicing the stump as close to the ground as possible utilising a chainsaw, and then using specialist stump grinding devices to grind away the stump. Stumps are ground down to approximately 10-12 inches below the dirt surface to permit planting, although occasionally landscaping projects might require the stump to be ground deeper than this. The wood chippings that are generated by the stump grinding could be either infilled back into the hole and used as mulch in other areas of your garden, or the stump grinding company may remove it and dispose of it in an eco-friendly manner. Furthermore, many specialist stump grinding companies have specialist small machines that could be employed if there is limited access to your garden for instance, through a side alley.
