Tree Stump Removal Services
Having trees in your backyard is good because it makes the lawn more appealing to the eye. However, stumps that remain once you cut down trees don’t have the same aesthetic appeal. Removing the stump will give your lawn a uniform look. The main challenge that you will have is how to get the tree stumps out of your way.
Some trees such as the silver maples have shallow rooting while others like the oaks have a deep root system. Therefore, the approach that you take to remove the stumps in both cases is very different. Most people prefer to hire tree stump removal services to help with this task. One of the brands that provide these services in the region is San Diego Tree Service Pros. The professionals know the right techniques and tools to use on each project. Here are some of the tips that will guide you through tree stump removal.
The challenge with digging out tree stumps is that it may cause structural damages to your property. At this point, stump grinding comes in handy. The machine has a spinning blade that has tipped teeth that will chew away the whole stump. However, grinders have a typical depth limit of ten to twelve inches below the ground level. If you don’t own a stump grinder, you can pay a tree removal contractor to do the work or hire one. However, don’t try to use this equipment unless you have the right skills as it can be risky. No people or children should stand nearby while grinding. The spinning blades usually send debris all over the place, and this can be dangerous.
If the stump that you are removing has shallow roots, you can think about hand digging it out. You will want some common tools like a root saw, winch, shovel, hoe, and an axe to handle this task. Dig around the stump to expose all the roots before using a root saw or an axe to expose them. Using a winch, pull the tree stump out of the ground. Note that a winch can turn out to be a dangerous and powerful weapon if you don’t anchor it well.
Chemical Stump Removal
If you want to avoid a lot of physical work, you may use chemicals in removing the stumps. However, most of these chemicals take a lot of time before decomposing the stump. The active ingredient in most of these chemicals is potassium nitrate. To apply these chemicals, drill several holes that are eight to ten inches deep in the tree stump. Pour the chemicals in these holes and then add water to make sure that the active ingredients seep the furthest possible into the stump. Lastly, cover the stumps so that your pets and children will not accidentally lick the poisonous chemical mixture. It is advisable to leave this task to tree stump removal services because it poses a high level of health risks.
The last method that you can use to remove tree stumps is burning. The technique works so well when you use it hand in hand with chemical application because the stump becomes more porous. Before you start the fire, there should be no materials that can ignite easily in the surrounding. You should mind your neighborhood and not burn it down. The best practice is building a makeshift stove around the stump before you can start the fire.
Removing tree stumps is not a difficult task. You can use any of the above methods to work on the job. The use of chemicals is poisonous, and hence you should keep off your kids and pet. Tree stump removal services will make sure that you have a beautiful lawn. San Diego Tree Service Pros has a lot of experience and the right equipment to work on these projects.
