A stump grinder is a specialised machine which grinds out a stump after a tree is removed allowing the area to be reused and replanted. Other reasons to have a stump ground include replanting, level changes for paving etc, structural problems, aesthetic values and also to reduce the possiblity of termites.
A stumpgrinding machine uses tungsten teeth. Abbott Trees has a range of machines to suit different situations. Our smallest machine, for example, can be carried through a house and is able to remove small stumps with difficult access.
We can give you a free quote on stumpgrinding, either as a separate price or combined with other tree work or removal. You can then choose to do the work at the same time or later on.
The images below show a stump before and after grinding showing how the operator managed to remove the stump from around a pipe.
