stump grindingStump Grinding

Once a tree is removed, the stump is left behind. In most cases, you'll want to grind the stump eight to twelve inches below ground level to allow for the planting of grass, shrubs, or a new tree.

If the tree was very large there may also be outer roots at or above ground level that need to be ground. This will be discussed during our initial inspection where the scope of work and the costs involved will be clearly indicated.

Rich Tree Service also offers finishing landscape services which include removal of the stump grindings and spreading soil and seed or sod. If you'd like a replacement tree, we can do that, too.

Protecting Your Property is Job One

Stump grinding requires the use of heavy equipment. Our professionals will take the following precautions to help ensure that the surrounding areas are not damaged.

We do ask you to note that while precautions will, in most cases, prevent any evidence of tree removal, it's possible that some very shallow ruts might be visible for a short period of time. These usually disappear within a few weeks.

Whatever decisions that are made, rest assured that Rich Tree Service will always put the safety of you and your property ahead of any other factor.

We Want You to Know!

The goal of grinding a stump is to prepare an area for landscaping. In that regard we want you to be aware that Rich Tree Service is not responsible for the actual landscaping or clean up of the work area.

When we complete the stump grinding, the area will be ready for you or your landscaper. This includes the clearing of any leftover mulch or sawdust created during the stump grinding process. The amount of mulch/sawdust will be dependent upon the size of the stump. If you'd like us to haul the mulch away, we can do so for an extra fee.

If you have any questions, please call us a 908-941-0063. One of our representatives will be happy to explain the process and what you can expect.
