STUMP GRINDING IN CHINO, CA
Stump grinding is one technique for removing an unsightly stump or a stump that poses a physical risk or liability for a property. Stump grinding requires heavy equipment, which grinds the stump down a few inches below ground level. It conceals the stump and root system and allows grass to grow over a few inches of soil.
The benefits of this technique include the short time it takes to complete and the relatively little disturbance to the location of the stump and the surrounding landscape. It is also less expensive compared to tree stump and root removal. The roots left in the ground will decompose with the help of fungus slowly replenishing nutrients in the soil.
The drawbacks to stump grinding are that planting in that spot will not be possible until the root system digests completely by the fungus, which can take as many as ten years. Leaving the root system in the soil can deprive healthy plants nearby of nutrients as the root system will continue to compete with healthy plants until it decomposes completely. The root system can also continually grow sprouts from the root system making their repeated removal troublesome.
Operation and even rental of the equipment required for stump grinding require training and certification to operate or even to rent. A tree service professional is needed. Additionally, several steps must be taken to stump grinding safely. These steps are not intuitive, and failure to complete them before grinding the stump can result in serious injury.
