When trees are felled it is important to remove the tree stumps which can play host to root diseases such as Honey fungus. Suckering can also occur when stump removal is not completed; resulting in the growth of new shoots from the tree trunk and roots. Stump removal also allows for maximum use of the space available following tree felling and removes unsightly stumps from view. Stump removal is best undertaken at the same time a tree is felled. The arboricultural team at Greenscape undertakes both tree felling and stump removal operations.
There are a number of techniques that can be used to successfully remove a tree stump, including physical stump removal using a winch, or grubbing out by hand or 360 excavator. Alternatively, a stump grinder can be deployed to grind out the main root plate of the tree leaving nothing but a fine saw dust. Greenscape provides all the necessary labour, plant and machinery to undertake stump grinding and stump removal.
