Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is only able to be completed after a tree has been removed, leaving a tree stump. Stump grinding is when a machine, called a stump grinder, is used to remove the remaining stump which is completed by the machine using a rotating disk which gradually chips away at the stump, creating a smooth surface or ground, leaving none of the stump behind. Stump grinders can range in size and shape from as big as a lawn mower to the size of a truck. There are various advantages surrounding stump grinding and its effectiveness like it’s fast, great for the garden, excellent for the environment and has minimal damage effects.

Stump grinding can prove to be one of the more effective methods of removing a tree stump. Using a stump grinder is one of the fastest methods of removing a tree stump. The reason behind this is due to its powerful spinning disks which constantly chip away at the stump. Tree stump grinders eliminate many of the hassles associated with traditional methods of stump removal like having to clear the roots away and digging around the stump. All these issues are eradicated effectively with the job being completed in a shorter period of time using a stump grinder.
Not only does using a stump grinder decrease the labour involved with removing a stump, but it is also excellent for the garden. Stump grinders prove to be excellent for the garden as their disks carve through the stump, creating nutritious mulch for your garden. Not only is it a great source of mulch for your garden, but it looks fantastic on your garden bed.

Stump grinding has had increasing popularity with environmental preservation groups. The reason surrounding this is due to the use of stump grinding in the removal of disease infected stumps. Removing these stumps will permanently prevent the further spread of these diseases between other trees, meaning stump grinding is the perfect tool for the job.

Another benefit surrounding stump grinding is the minimal damage it produces when in use. The reason for there being minimal damage is due to the accuracy of the machine. The accuracy of these machines are precise and remove the stumps without damaging its surroundings which can include other trees, plants or landscaping.

Best way to kill a tree stump

Poisoning a tree stump

Poisoning a tree stump*

After a tree is removed, often the stump will continues to grow and there will be sprouts of growth on the stump in the few weeks after it is lopped. If left untreated then the stump could potentially regrow into another near full sized and slightly disfigured tree. Removing the tree stump is the only way to prevent the tree stump from regrowing if poisoning and kill the stump is an unacceptable option.
The first thing that needs to be done is the tree must be cut to ground level, or the lowest level permitted by the terrain. Within 30 seconds of causing an injury to the stump or its roots a generous application of tree poison needs to be applied. Any delay in applying the poison may allow the tree’s cells to close up and the stump won’t accept the poison as readily. Use a chainsaw to cut grooves in the stump and roots and quickly apply the poison using an applicator or spray bottle. Drilling holes into the tree’s stump and roots is an equally effective option.

There are many products on the market that would be suitable to poison a tree stump. Glyphosate based liquid poisons are highly effective (such as Round-up, glypho 450, zero, etc) when applied in this manner. Make sure they are applied in dilute form and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Wait around 6 weeks and then reapply in the same manner – making grooves in the timber before a quick application. If the poison is undiluted it will damage the cell membranes of the stump but not be absorbed by the plant which how they cause the stumps to die.

A common concern with glyphosate based poison is that it is considered a nasty toxic herbicide. In fact, it is one of the least toxic herbicides and it is not soil residual. This means that in 14 days from application it would be impossible to detect in the soil as it leaves without a trace. There is zero chance that glyphosate would poison plants that it was not applied to. So don’t get over zealous with your application and accidently exposed the other plants when you were applying it. There is the risk if it rained within 6 hours of application the poison could spread – so check the weather before applying. Also, in winter trees can have greater resistance to herbicides as the tree’s growth slows during this time.

For stumps that just refuse to die there are some serious heavy duty poisons available. Tordon has an injection poison, which is injected into tree stumps roots and causes rapid death. Graslan and Tordon have pellets which require drilling into the tree stump and inserting the pellets that get slowly absorbed. There are basal bark forms from Access, Garlon 600, and Starane which are also highly effective for those hard to kill stumps. We suggest using a glyphosate poison, but if it isn’t working then try the cut stump method with any product from Access, Garlon 600, Tardon, and Starane – they are guaranteed to do the trick.

If you can’t be bothered with poisoning your stump you could always get a professional arborist to come around and poison or remove the stump for you. Try the crew at Sydney Tree Removals as they are highly affordable and have an excellent reputation.
