A stump grinder works by tearing the stump apart with powerful rotating teeth (which are very strong, made out of steel and tipped with tungsten carbide), or sometimes what looks like a giant chainsaw.

Will the tree stump need poisoning?

No poison or other environmentally harmful substance is required; as the core of the stump is completely destroyed.


What is left behind once the stump has been removed?

Chippings/Mulch is left behind which is easily disposed of e.g.: organic compost, border chippings or removed from the site.

Measure the widest part of the stump, usually at absolute ground level where it is the thickest.
