Michael came out to evaluate some trees I had with a questionable fungus on them, and ultimately the course of action was removal for a select few. He got me an estimate for the removal within a matter of days. They had the most competitive prices out of the other estimates I got. Michael is a very knowledgeable Arborist and you can tell he is passionate about his work. He wasn't pushy at all about the removal like some of the other companies I had come out, and he advised me on doing it in "phases" to fit my budget. The actual tree removal and stump grinding itself was so smooth and all the workers that came with the crane and stump service were very professional and communicative about what the process was going to be.

It took a while for the weather to cooperate, but when the time came, all went well with excellent results. The crew removed a large water oak and a small trash tree. They worked well together and when finished, the job site was cleaned up nicely. They were friendly and informative. Neighbors were also impressed. I highly recommend Driscoll Tree Service.

How to Remove a Tree Stumps Properly

secondary

After checking all the boxes, you can start the stump removal. There’s no doubt that stump removal is a rigorous endeavor, especially if you lack the experience and expertise to do the job. Before proceeding with the project, ensure you familiarize yourself with safety precautions to prevent harm. This entails wearing the proper protective equipment, such as boots, safety goggles, gloves and a hard hat.

Here are several ways to remove a tree stump. Assess the characteristics of the stump to determine the most suited removal technique. Size is an essential factor that impacts the method used since large and heavy stumps can be challenging for DIY removal solutions. Another factor to consider is root depth. A shallow-rooted stump is easy to remove, but a deep-rooted stump requires standard industry tools and experience. We can help you with the large tree stumps, alleviating the subsequent safety risks of DIY stump removal.

Using Tree Stump Killers

There are numerous stump killer products on the shelves of your local store; it can be challenging to determine the most effective and safe to use. Leverage our industry knowledge by scheduling a consultation with our experts, and have all your inquiries and concerns addressed. If the wrong stump killer product is used, you risk new root growth in the stump, making the removal process more complex.

Manual Tree Stump Removal

With the right tools and skill, removing the stump and root system is possible. This is probably the most physically demanding method to remove a stump in your yard. However, hiring a tree service professional relieves you of the literal heavy lifting involved in manual removal, ensuring the project is done efficiently and quickly.

Using a Stump Grinder

A stump grinder is a standard industry tool that shreds the stump into wood chips. Rather than incur the hefty cost of purchasing a grinding saw, you can hire one for about $100-$200, allowing you to remove stumps of all sizes easily. It is important to note that a stump grinder can cause serious harm, and users need to be trained to mitigate injuries.

We know how overwhelming removing a stump from your lawn is, especially if you lack the experience and skills required. If you don’t feel comfortable removing a stump, contact us at Driscoll Tree Service for professional assistance through the entire process. We conduct comprehensive inspections to ensure minimum damage without compromising the quality of service.
