Tree Removal Fairfax VA: Now that your tree has been removed, what are you going to do with the stump? You may not want to leave it in your yard. Tree stumps can become infected with fungi that can spread to your healthy trees, and they make good homes for nuisance pests.

Stump grinding is a common method of tree stump removal. A stump grinder is a large piece of machinery with a cutting wheel on an arm. The arm moves the wheel back and forth across the stump as the wheel’s steel teeth grind it into small pieces.

Ask your tree care professional if you can keep the fine mulch that results from the stump grinding process—it makes for great gardening or composting. If you don’t want to keep the stump leftovers, find out whether the company will remove it for you.

You can also ask your tree service company if they’ll bring in topsoil and fill in the hole left by stump grinding. If you would like to use the space for landscaping in the future, ask your tree care professional about what you need to do to make it suitable for planting.

Educate yourself on the ins and outs of stump removal beforehand, so you know what questions to ask and what to expect from your tree service company.
