Tree Removal FAQs

There are many reasons why you would want to have a tree removed from your property. Many times people do it for aesthetics; they don’t like the apple trees and the apples in their yard, or they are putting something else in like a pool, or perhaps they want to stop the sunlight being blocked in their home.

What’s the best way to remove the tree?

There are different ways to do remove the stump from complete stump removal to stump grinding and chemical removal (which is a secondary process after cutting the tree down). It depends on the roots of the tree and how far out they go and how big the stump is, as well as how much additional work you want to do to the landscape.

Keep in mind that stump removal is going to remove the whole stump and roots underneath which can leave you with a very large hole that now needs to be filled in. Stump grinding only grinds a few inches below the surface and produces a smaller hole at which point the roots will eventually die off and decay into the earth naturally. This is much simpler to fill and takes what could be considered less work both during the process of removal and after.
