Stump Grinding & Tree Roots

Stump grinding, when done properly, does kill tree roots. Usually, most roots, if they aren’t obstructed by pipes or cables, can be dug out or ground away. Some deeper roots may remain after stump grinding, however, these usually die off over time as long as most of the tree structure is removed.

    What To Expect From Your Stump Grinding Appointment

    Before our team of aborists arrive on-site, you should clear the area around the stump. This includes removing any debris, such as leaves, branches, and rocks. You should also mark any known underground utilities, such as gas lines and water pipes. Doing this will help to prevent damage to your property during the stump grinding process.

    During the stump grinding process, you can expect our tree surgeons to take a few safety precautions, such as wearing gloves and goggles. They will also use a machine to grind away at the stump until it is completely removed. After the job is done, they will clean up any debris and mulch that is left behind.

    Yes, we do! We leave the area where we have been stump grinding nice and tidy. All waste generated by the tree work we carry out is taken away from the site. We use our wood chipper to mulch the arisings and this is taken directly to our yard where it is processed into compost and re-used on a local farm as fertiliser. We try to be as green as possible at Broadleaf Tree Surgery Ltd, carrying out work as efficiently as possible to reduce our carbon footprint. For extra peace of mind, we are fully licensed and regulated to carry waste and dispose of it.

    If you’d like to use the wood chips for your flower beds, paths, or garden, just let us know and we will be happy to leave them with you. We also understand that you may want to use the wood as firewood, if that’s the case we will even cut it up and stack it for you!
    As a professional company, we perform local authority checks on each and every one of our jobs. Our team have been dealing with local councils for years and have plenty of experience on where conservation areas are and what is and isn’t allowed. We don’t charge to do the planning applications or paperwork required, and we can offer advice on what is best for the ongoing management of your trees.
    Trees, even stumps, are sometimes subject to a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). This is because trees are an asset and contribute hugely to an area’s biodiversity as well as providing a certain level of aesthetic appeal. Many village centres are within a conservation area and many old and large, or particularly important trees are covered by a TPO.
    The best time to have stump grinding done on your property is in the fall or winter. This is because the ground is typically softer during these times of year, which makes it easier for the machine to remove the stump. Additionally, there are typically fewer leaves on the trees, which means that the job will be less messy.
