Stump Removal in Cleveland, Ohio
Saints Tree Service removes stumps in two ways: grinding and physical removal with a backhoe. In grinding, we employ a stump grinder to basically grind the stump below the ground- removing it thoroughly from sight. In stump removal, we use a medium backhoe to push the stump and large connected roots. In most times, only large commercial developments choose the first way because removing a stump in this manner could be expensive and could result in harm to the area.
Almost 95% of our customers go for stump grinding when they want to remove the appearance of a stump. This is a case wherein we will be required to use one of our Vermeer grinders to grind the stump down to about three to six inches below the ground, just enough for it to be out of sight and allowing grass and other plantings to grow above it.
The difficulty of the grinding process depends on the type of stump. This difference is basically because of the variety of trees, including their age and size. Oaks and Maples are most likely difficult to grind. On the other hand, mature conifers such as Cedars and Pines are the easiest stumps to grind. The age of the tree says a lot about how challenging grinding will be. Newer stumps are much harder to grind than older ones. Regardless of the variables, Saints Tree Service can get rid of any kind of stump. With our state-of-the-art stump grinders, no stump is too difficult to remove.
