Why Grinding is the Best Way to Remove a Stump

Some pros may grind, burn, or chemically remove stumps and although these are acceptable ways to get rid of that stump, grinding is the best. Stump grinding is a process by which a rotating cutter wheel grinds a stump to below ground level so that all that is left of the stump is wood chips mixed with dirt. So, why should you grind that troublesome stump?

  • Environmentally Friendly: Rotting a stump using harsh chemicals is dangerous for the environment.
    DeJong Stump Grinding removes your stump quickly without using any hazardous substances.
  • More Effective: Digging or burning it leaves a huge mess and doesn’t fully eradicate the stump.
    DeJong Stump Grinding thoroughly removes tree stumps as it completely grinds anything left behind.
  • Less Disruptive: Digging out stumps impacts a large area of your yard, and disrupts underground utilities, sidewalks, and patios.
    DeJong Stump Grinding leaves behind a hole only as big as the stump itself, which can be easily filled and planted with grass.

A stump-free lawn is easier to maintain.
