Professional Stump Grinding in Andover, MN and Surrounding Areas

Following a successful shrub or tree removal project, the stump left behind can not only become an unsightly eyesore, but is now an obstacle in the yard. It can become an annoyance when cutting the grass as it is now an obstacle, or even a potentially dangerous object if it is located in an area where kids may play. To make things worse, as a stump begins to decay, it makes a great habitat for insects such as ants, termites and beetles. Once these pests set up shop in the stump, removing them from your yard is another hassle that must be dealt with, especially if the stump is near your home or other structure on your property. Reduce the risk of a hazard in your yard by hiring the Andover, MN stump grinding professionals at PLL Services. Get in touch today to request an estimate for your stump grinding project.

Differences Between Stump Grinding and Removal

Stump elimination is one of the most important aspects of tree maintenance and must be executed properly. We offer two methods of handling stumps – grinding and removal. 

Stump grinding is an elaborate process where a stump is mechanically ground down into fine sawdust, leaving the roots in place. Following the completion of stump grinding, a hole is in its place, usually between 6″-12″ deep. This sawdust eventually decomposes into the soil. This is an cost-effective method to eliminate a stump from the surface and is a great choice for a client looking to place additional soil and sod or seed overtop. 

Stump removal involves pulling a stump and the majority of its roots out of the ground. This requires heavy equipment for the majority of projects. A complete stump removal is best suited for stumps that are located in an area near a structure or if new shrubs or trees are going to be planted in the area.
