When it comes to stump removal, professionalism is paramount. At Dad's Tree Service, we follow industry standards to ensure that your stump is effectively and safely removed, making way for revitalizing the landscape on your property in Springfield, Virginia.
Stump Grinding, Not Pulling
By industry standards, stumps are not actually pulled out with heavy equipment like backhoes, unless it's part of a major renovation project. Instead, professional tree surgeons like those at Dad's Tree Service employ specialized equipment known as stump cutters. These stump cutters are large, precision instruments designed to meticulously grind the stump a few inches below surface level to allow for renewal of the lawn in the affected areas. Dad’s Tree Service also handles the mandatory notifications to the Virginia Miss Utility system, so public utilities can be marked before the job. (Note: private utility lines fall under the homeowner’s domain.)
Effective Stump Results
Stump grinding is a highly effective method for handling unsightly tree stumps. Beyond its efficiency, stump grinding offers another benefit—it opens up the possibility of planting grass right where the tree once stood.
The Role of Stump Mulch
Stump mulch, a byproduct of the grinding process, can be a useful resource. However, it's important to note that stump mulch is generally not recommended for use as mulch near your house. This is because it is not treated against termites and is considered "dirty mulch."
