Does Tree Removal Include Stump Removal?

In most circumstances, tree removal does not typically include stump removal services. Tree removal refers to cutting down a tree's trunk and branches but usually involves leaving the stump and root system in the ground.

Stump removal is a separate, more intensive process that involves extracting the stump and root ball from the ground. Stump removal needs to be performed by highly trained technicians using commercial-grade equipment, as improper work can damage property and leave parts of the stump behind.

Is Stump Removal Safe for Your Property?

When done correctly, stump removal is completely safe and can benefit your home and yard. Hiring our professional tree technicians ensures the process is carried out correctly without causing unnecessary damage.

Removing stumps eliminates potential tripping hazards and can destroy breeding grounds for pests like termites or carpenter ants, which can cause structural damage to your property. However, stump grinding and removal require heavy machinery and will initially leave large holes in your yard that need to be filled. If completed in line with best practices, stump removal will have no long-term negative impacts on your property.

What's the Difference Between Stump Removal and Stump Grinding?

Although they achieve similar goals, stump removal and grinding differ in the amount of stump removed from the ground. Stump grinding involves using heavy machinery to chip away at the visible portion of the stump, whereas removal completely lifts the stump and root system from your property.

Each process has different costs and unique pros and cons:

  • Stump grinding:
    • Removes visible stump and a few inches below the ground
    • Leaves root/root system in the ground (they may re-sprout over time)
    • Faster, less labor-intensive process
    • More cost-effective
    • Creates woodchips/sawdust
    • Allows for same-day replanting
  • Stump removal:
    • Completely removes stump and root system
    • Invasive process that requires heavy machinery
    • More expensive
    • Leaves a large hole that needs to be filled
    • Eliminates risk of re-sprouting
