Portland Stump Grinding Service

Stump grinding is done with a specially designed machine, and it can cut/grind the stump into small wood chips. The chips can either be left for the homeowners use or can be removed for a fee.

The most common reasons to remove a stump from your yard are to improve aesthetics or to re-landscape the area by replacing it with sod, a garden, or a new tree.

How Stump Grinding Works

Stump grinding is the process of removing a tree stump by using a stump grinder. A stump grinder is a machine that has a large, rotating blade that grinds the stump down into small pieces. The stump grinder will first make a cut around the circumference of the stump, and then it will start grinding away at the center of the stump.

Stump grinding is an effective way to remove the entire stump, and it's also relatively quick and easy. The entire process can usually be completed in just a few hours, and you won't have to deal with any messy cleanup afterwards if you would like us to remove the wood chip for you.

"We had a complicated and difficult job and All Around Arbor did the work and did a great job.  They are fantastic.  I got quotes from five different arborists...All Around gave me the best pricing and timing; they did exactly what they said they would.  No surprises, and the crew was great...right through leaving the stump grind neat and clean (and gone)!  We've already scheduled our next job with them and recommend them wholeheartedly!"

Stump Grinding Preparation and Cleanup

Before stump grinding can begin, there are a few things that need to be done to prepare the area. First, all of the debris and debris around the stump needs to be removed. This includes any rocks, roots, or other objects that could potentially damage the stump grinder. Next, the stump needs to be marked so that the grinder knows where to start and stop.

Once the stump is prepared, the stump grinder will start grinding away at it. The process usually takes just a few minutes to complete. After the stump is ground down, All Around Arbor will clean up any remaining debris from the area. We'll also haul away the grindings for you so that you don't have to worry about them. You can have a tidy yard right away and forget the stump was ever there. We have years of experience with tree services and stump grinding, and we know how to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

This will ensure that the stump is completely gone and won't start sprouting new trees. It's also important to note that stump grinding is not always necessary after tree removal. Sometimes, the stump can be left in place if it's not in the way or if you don't need to replant a new tree in its place. Learn about our tree removal services.
