What Is A Stump Grinder?
Our trusted tree-care specialist are here to educate you on whether stump grinding is the best choice for you.
A stump grinder is a very powerful machine that looks (depending on the model and size) like a circular saw and a lawnmower mixed together. It is designed to roll up to a stump and grind it into small wood chip-like pieces. Our grinder chips/chews away at the tree stump after it’s been left by a tree removal Whitmore Lake MI company. Our operator will direct the blade at the entire tree stump and turn it into chips, which will take the stump down to below ground level.
This creates a large number of wood chips that can be used in multiple ways. You can keep these remnants to be used in a garden as mulch, they can be filled into the hole after the stump is completely ground, or we can remove the chips completely. We recommend using them as a filler and then covering the hole with dirt. The chips will decay over time and it will help lower the cost of fill dirt to cover the now existing hole in the ground.

We feel it’s important to educate our customers that stump grinding is not the same as stump removal.

Can I Rent A Stump Grinder?
The stump grinders that are available to rent by homeowners are smaller and less powerful than a machine used by a professional stump grinding company. Hiring a trained tree-care specialist is well worth it when it comes to the high possibility of personal injury. Not only do we use heavy-duty equipment, our operators need protective equipment to ensure they are protected from flying debris and noise. Not only can you be hit by flying wood pieces, you never know what can be hiding within or around the stump – which can include things like piping, bricks, nails, glass old fence posts, and more!
Not only are you protecting yourself from accidental damage when hiring a pro. Professional arborists and tree-grinding companies also carry insurance against damage that may occur to your property from the grinding of a stump. Anyone attempting to do DIYs should highly consider these things before damaging their own or a neighboring property.

The maintenance required by keeping the stump is often a very unsatisfying chore to say the least.
