How To Successfully Approach Residential Stump Removal

If you have a stump causing problems around your residential property, you should see about removing it before long. Here are some protocols that will make this stump removal stress-free the entire time.

Remove as Much Material as You Can With a Chainsaw

In order to have an easier time removing a stump, it's a good idea to use a chainsaw to remove as much of the remaining tree as possible. This machine is powerful and should be enough to break apart the stump until you reach the very bottom of the base. 

You can rent this chainsaw to avoid spending a lot of money. Or you can just hire a tree professional that already has this equipment in their inventory. Once enough of the stump is removed, you can start targeting the roots and getting rid of this eyesore completely.

Use a Stump Grinder For Remaining Pieces

Once you have enough of the tree removed, you can finish the stump off with a grinder. It's a special machine that can break through tough materials like wood and tree roots that may be left over. Again, you can rent this tool out yourself or hire a professional to manage it.

A stump grinder is going to be one of the most important tools for this removal because it can work down deep into the ground where the tree roots are. Just be mindful of rocks if you plan on using this grinder yourself.

Finish up With a Chemical Treatment

After you've physically removed the stump from your property using a chainsaw and stump grinder, it's a good idea to follow up with stump-killing products. Then even if there are sections that you weren't able to reach because they're pretty far underground, you can still kill them using the appropriate products.

You just need to make sure you get a strong enough chemical that works deep in the area where the stump was. Then you won't have to worry about any more tree growth or other problems associated with stumps around residential properties.

If you're tired of having one or a couple of stumps around your property, then you need to come up with a removal plan sooner rather than later. As long as you use the right products and equipment, no stump around your property is going to cause you a bunch of headaches that you can't work out.
