Stump Grinding in Waterford, MI
That lone tree stump, what an eyesore! Without question, a stump in the middle of a beautifully landscaped yard is unsightly. And isn’t mowing around these stumps becoming tedious? And for the health of your other trees, leaving a stump attracts fungal diseases that could spread, according to the latest research. It’s time to grind that eyesore down. At Waterford Tree Service we can quickly and affordably take care of your tree stump problems. We have the most current equipment so as not to damage your landscape and can remove any size stump, even the ones that are wind-blown and uprooted, no matter the location. And when we say any size, how about a diameter of 10 feet? Yes, we did! The wheel base on our machinery is no wider than 35 inches, due to the ability of our equipment to retract the tracks, and is able to fit through most standard size gates. We also grind down any exposed roots to a depth of six inches if you plan to plant grass, or as deep as 12 inches for another purpose. Planning on planting another tree in the same spot? Our arborist will be happy to consult with you on any questions you may have.
Stump Removal Equipment
Curious about how a professional stump grinder works? A steel, wheel type blade is attached to the front of the machine. This wheel spins just like a saw blade and has teeth that are carbide tipped. This blade is continuously lowered down to the edge of the stump, going from side to side and grinding deeper with each pass. It continues to an available depth of 12 inches. Not something you see every day!
We Make it Easy
If we deem it necessary we will call the appropriate utility companies and have them mark all underground lines. As the homeowner, you should inform us of any underground dog fencing, if there is a septic field or sprinkler lines, etc. As always, we provide you with a free written estimate. We have stump grinding discounts for more than one stump that is ground down during one trip. We wouldn’t recommend stump grinding as a do-it-yourself project, especially if you have zero experience. But if you have yourself convinced that you are going to tackle this yourself, please consult a professional first. They can be a wealth of experienced information and you may learn some things that end up changing your mind. It’s best to change your mind before you have rented the grinder and the trailer to tow it. When Waterford Tree Service is contracted to grind down your stumps you are guaranteed professional, efficient and affordable stump grinding service. Stay away from the cheap stump grinding service; they have to cut costs somewhere. Chances are they are uninsured.
