Tips for Removing Tree Stumps

Rental equipment needed for stump grindingNeeding landscaping equipment in Greensboro and surrounding areas?It’s that time of year – time to get your lawn back in optimum condition for maximum summertime enjoyment. If you have tree stumps in your yard, they’re likely taking up space you could be using for something else, like a garden or a kids’ play area. Maybe you’ve learned to just overlook them, thinking that removing them would be too big of a job. There are actually several ways to tackle the task; which method you use depends a lot on how much patience you have for the process.

Dig it Out
If you don’t mind using plenty of muscle, you could just manually dig out the stump with a shovel and plenty of elbow grease. Dig around the stump until you’ve uncovered the largest roots. This method works best for tree stumps that are fairly small, with a limited root system. If the roots appear to run deep, another method may work better.

Grind it Out
The quickest method involves renting a stump grinder from your local equipment rental company. This machine makes relatively easy work out of grinding the stump and roots down to a depth of about 1 foot below ground. Renting a stump grinder is especially smart if you have several tree stumps to tackle. It’s important to wear protection for your hands, eyes and ears if you’ll be using a grinder. The machine will quickly grind down the stump; all that’s left to do is remove the grindings and fill in the hole with soil.

Burn it Out
This method doesn’t involve much muscle, but it may not be permitted in your city or town. Check with your local fire department before going this route. To burn out a stump, simply surround it with firewood, light it and allow it to burn the stump down to the ground. Then, shovel out the ashes and refill with dirt.

Use a Chemical Remover
If you have plenty of patience and aren’t in a hurry to remove the stump, you can drill holes in the stump and fill them with potassium nitrate and water. This method will soften the stump in about 4 to 6 weeks, at which time it will be pliable enough to use an axe to break up the wood.

If you’d like to make quick work of this task you’ve been dreading, the best way is to rent a grinding machine for a day. This way, you’ll be dreaming up new uses for all that new space that much sooner!
