Process We Follow for Stump Removal

Inspection and Planning

The first step in our stump removal process is a thorough inspection of your stump by our ISA Certified Arborist. We will evaluate:

  • Stump size, species, and extent of root system
  • Location on property in relation to structures, utilities, and other landscaping
  • Condition of stump and any signs of decay or disease
  • Environmental factors like soil type, drainage, and slope

This allows us to choose the proper tools and techniques for your particular stump’s needs. We will also discuss with you the desired outcome, whether simply grinding down or full extraction.

After agreeing on a plan, we will walk through the job site to identify any obstacles or sensitive areas requiring protection. Your satisfaction is our top priority, so please ask any questions you may have!

Site Preparation

Before starting stump grinding, our team will prep the site to avoid damage. This includes:

  • Marking underground utilities for avoidance
  • Clearing away debris and trimming back vegetation
  • Providing pathway access to the stump
  • Setting up protective barriers around sensitive areas

Proper site preparation keeps your property safe and our equipment maneuvering freely during the job.

Stump Grinding

Now the real work begins! Our arborist will use a powerful, commercial-grade stump grinding machine to break down what remains of the stump and roots. This involves:

  • Removing any surface roots with a chainsaw
  • Operating the grinder teeth to chip away wood debris
  • Grinding down till at least 12 inches below grade
  • Extracting visible root balls and grinding leftovers
  • Backfilling the cavity with chips and soil

We take care to grind debris inward, collecting it for proper disposal rather than letting it scatter. The result is a clean site ready for you to plant grass, trees, flowers, and more!

Site Restoration

As a final step, we will sweep up any remaining wood chips and sawdust, leaving the site clean. Our arborist will assess the area, filling any holes or uneven areas. Topsoil and new grass seed can be added if desired.

We take pride in complete stump removal, not just grinding. You can enjoy your beautiful, refreshed landscape again, already picturing what to plant in the stump’s place.

Optional Root Ball Extraction

For full extraction of the entire stump and root system, our arborist can perform root ball extraction before grinding. This involves using a backhoe to loosen and pull out as much of the root ball as possible.

This leaves a much larger cavity to fill but removes the entire stump for complete restoration. Ideal if planning new construction or extensive landscaping.

FAQs About Stump Removal In Farmington Hills, Michigan

How long does it take to remove a stump?

Removal time depends on factors like size and location but generally takes 1-3 hours per stump for grinding, with additional time needed if extracting roots. We schedule jobs efficiently to minimize disruption to your property.

Is it cheaper to rent a stump grinder vs hiring a professional?

Renting and operating equipment yourself may seem cheaper but risks inefficiency, mistakes, accidents, and equipment damage. Our expertise brings cost savings in the long run.

How much does it cost to remove a 24 inch stump?

Our average price range for a 24 inch stump is $300 – $600, with the exact rate based on specific job requirements. Receive an accurate quote upfront.

Will grinding damage my lawn or landscaping?

We take precautions like protective barriers and inward grinding to prevent scattering. Minimal restoration is needed beyond backfilling the hole and topping with soil.

Should I wait for the stump to rot first?

Waiting years for natural decay poses problems like pest infestation, obstacles in yard, and nutrient depletion. Stump removal is the best way to restore your landscape promptly.

How do you grind a stump near a house foundation?

Special care is taken near structures, using smaller equipment, trenching roots, and backfilling the cavity. Our certified arborists know safe grinding techniques.

What if I’m not sure where utility lines are?

Our team can locate underground utilities if needed, avoiding them during grinding. Stump removal poses little risk to buried utilities when done properly.

How long should I wait to plant something new after stump removal?

The site will be ready for new plantings, structures, etc. after backfill settles. A 1-2 week wait is recommended. We can provide topsoil and seeding.

Should all the roots be removed too?

Removing the taproot and major roots is ideal but smaller absorptive roots decompose underground over time. Our arborists determine best practices for your landscape.

How do you know if the stump has fully been removed?

Our team grinds 12+ inches below grade until all wood chips are gone, extracts main root balls, and backfills the hole completely level with the surrounding soil.
