Tree Removal Bramhall

Tree removal and stump grinding can be a complicated process. Over time trees can grow to create natural boundaries between properties or sections of land. These work really well until the time that they become to large. When we plant trees , we rarely take into account as to how tall they will grow. Or that room that the individual trees would need. Therefore, as they grow, they can become problematic.

Other issues can be attributed to light restriction that can be created by growing trees. This was certainly the case with this project. Once the branches started to be taken down, the light started pouring into the once darkened space.

Stump Grinding Bramhall

All trees were cut down systematically, leaving the large tree stumps. A stump grinder is then used to remove these from the ground.

Here are some frequently asked questions we often receive about stump grinding.

How do stump grinders work?

A stump grinder is high-powered equipment that removes tree stumps. This is done by a rotating cutting disc that grinds away the tree stump. The machinery is controlled by hydraulic cylinders that push the cutter head laterally through the stump.

Is it better to grind a stump or remove it?

Grinding stumps is much more efficient than stump removal. One thing you should consider is that it will, however, leave the tree’s roots behind. If the stump is large, the chip pile produced can also be large. These chips can form mulch or you can ask your chosen tree surgeon to remove the chips for an agreed price.

How long does it take for a tree stump to rot?

The rate at which tree stumps rot or deteriorate does depend on so many factors. The process can take between 3 to 10 years. Some factors that make this range change are the type of tree or the location of the stump. Softer woods decompose quicker than harder wood.

This means that assistance is often needed in order to prune trees, reduce trees and other tree work.

Problem Trees Davenport Park

Some large trees block out light. This is not an ideal solution for anyone, and larger trees can become problematic, if left. All elements of the job were discussed prior to us starting. We reduced the tree so that it was a more acceptable size and did not limit the light as much to the surrounding houses. If you are out in the garden and need more sunshine, we could reduce or crown thin your trees for more natural light penetration with no removal needed.
