What does stump grinding mean?
Unfortunately, nature has its way and some trees don’t make it. Whether you lost your tree to storm damage, disease, or you’re trying to prevent a hazardous situation, stump grinding takes care of the roots and tree stump that is leftover after cutting a tree down. Calling the professionals at Arbor Pro to handle your stump grinding is the safest solution.
Why Grind a Stump?
Old, rotting stumps are clearly an eyesore for your otherwise pristine landscaping. Utah homeowners in and around Ogden can call Arbor Pro to get rid of their pesky tree stumps. Not only are unsightly stumps a valid excuse to grind them down, but they can quickly become overrun with pests or disease. Trust us, you don’t want to deal with either of those!
A study conducted by Utah State University shows that some of the most common diseases and pests for trees in Utah include Dutch Elm disease (spread by Elm Bark Beetles), Thousand Cankers disease (spread by Walnut Twig Beetles), Balsam Woolly Adelgid (tiny insects), and the Velvet longhorned beetle. Over time, a rotting stump also becomes a hub for home damaging pests like termites or carpenter ants. Take care of those pesky stumps before you have to start charging rent to the insects.
Stump Grinding is Dangerous
Always call the professionals if you’re in need of stump removal. Stump grinding is a dangerous process. As professionals, we provide all of the necessary and expensive equipment to grind down your stumps. We use a machine to completely shred the stump down into small wood chips. Stump grinding is much more efficient than stump removal. You can even keep all of the wood chips to use in your other landscaping if you’d like.
Never attempt to pull a stump out of the ground. Roots run deeper than the eye can see! Save your back, your time, and your health by calling the professionals. Stump grinding isn’t the Friday night activity that you want to call your friends over to help you take care of.
