Different Stump Removal Methods

Stump removal

If you have an unsightly stumps on your property that were left by a previous owner, it is likely you have considered removing them to aid in enhancing the appearance of your outdoor space. There are a few different methods that can be used to get rid of stumps when desired. Here are some points to consider.

Burning Stumps With Natural Gas

Some people try burning stumps with the use of gasoline or kerosene. While this is certainly an option, it is tedious work and will require someone to be watching the stump around the clock. Burning can take several days for a stump to break down, putting those on the property at risk for injury should flames get out of hand. It is best to do this controlled burn in an area where a structure is not nearby.

Use Chemicals To Disintegrate Wood

Chemicals made especially for decomposing wood will eliminate a stump without the need for heavy physical labor. This is an alternative for those who do not mind waiting for several weeks for the stump to soften. The chemicals can be placed directly on each stump every few days, adding more after rainfall as needed. Drilling holes in stumps and filling them with the chemical will quicken the process. The downfall to this type of elimination process is the possibility of harming other plants on the property.

Hire A Professional For Prompt Service

The best way to remove stumps from a property is to hire a professional tree service to do the job. They will show up with top-of-the-line grinding equipment and will use the right tools to remove the stump from the ground in its entirety without causing harm to other foliage or the natural ground pitch in the process.
