The Difference Between Stump Grinding and Stump Removal
After a tree has been removed you will be left with a stump. The options for dealing with it are stump grinding and stump removal.
Stump grinding is most often the chosen method. It is the least invasive to your yard and grinds the stump down to a point below ground level. A portion of the stump and most of the root system will still be below the surface.
Stump removal is the alternative method. This method is often used when plans are made for landscaping that will require the total removal of the stump and root system.This often involves excavation and due to the nature of urban infrastructure can be a complicated process.
