Best Tree Stump Removal In Greeley, Colorado
Greeley Stump Grinding
If you went through the trouble of getting your tree removed, it probably makes sense to go ahead and take care of your stump as well. Tree stumps are more than just an eyesore, they are a hazard during lawn maintenance or backyard playtime if not removed properly.
Also, they take up space that could otherwise be used to plant more trees, bushes, or plants. Remember too that keeping up the appearance of your estate can heighten it’s property value. If you’d like a free consultation on your stump removal for any of the above purposes, please give us a call at 970-394-3653.
Some stumps are easier to extract than others. The best indicators of the level of difficulty for stump eradication are age and tree type. Age is the biggest factor in determining whether or not you may need a tree professional's help for the removal process.
Let’s say for example a healthy tree that has fallen after a violent storm leaves a stump in your backyard. Let’s also say the same storm knocked down a hollowed out and decaying tree in your front yard. In most circumstances, the tree stump that will be more difficult to remove will be that of the younger tree.
This is because the younger tree has left behind a much stronger and diverse root system that is still connected to the stump, while the hollowed out and decaying tree probably has a root system that is already decomposing within the soil. Therefore, it will be much easier to detach the older tree stump from the soil because it is not as grounded as the healthier tree stump.
But the age of the stump is not the only factor that can play into the difficulty of the removal process. The type of tree can also play a role in how much effort is needed to pull out the stump.
In most cases, a deciduous tree such as an oak or maple is harder and will have a long and deep root structure that allows it to take up nutrients deep in the soil, making it harder to extract a stump of this type.
On the contrary, a coniferous tree stump such as a pine with a much shallower distribution of tree roots, will be much easier to uproot under most circumstances. With the help of our certified arborists and tree care professionals, we can help you determine the difficulty and precautionary measures needed to successfully pull out a stump and root system from the soil.
We utilize high powered stump grinding machines to wither down the exterior facing side of the trunk. If needed, we may utilize a bulldozer to eliminate the underlying root system so that all parts of the tree are withdrawn.
This allows for more fertile and loose soil to develop overtime, making for a smooth surface ideal for replanting. If you’re in need of a professional stump removal service, give us a quick call and we’ll be happy to give you an estimate on cost and feasibility.
