Stump Grinding CT

From grinding one stump from a removal, to an entire acre that will be turned back into grass, Green Valley Tree LLC has tire and track machines to get the job done. We first evaluate the area to make sure that there are no underground obstacles and then quickly grind the stump and the area around it, removing all roots. You can then have the millings left behind or have them removed and add topsoil and grass seed.

Additionally, it increases property value and makes it easier to sell your home. The process does not require expensive equipment or heavy machinery, making it affordable for residential or commercial properties.

3. Helps to create better soil quality

Tree stump grinding is a process that helps to create better soil quality. Grinding stumps breaks down the wood and helps to aerate and fertilize the soil with natural nutrients. The process also kills any weeds or unwanted plants that may be growing around the stump.

What is the Process of Stump Grinding?

The process of tree stump grinding begins with our crew arriving at the site and measuring the height and circumference of the stump. We then cut out a notch in the stump and remove the top. After that, we fill the inside of the stump with water to reduce dust. With the notch that we cut into the stump, we place a blade in it and then begin to grind it down. Our crew will typically grind for hours, depending on the size of the stump, until completion.

We typically grind a stump down some 6 cm below ground and remove the grinds for you. We can also fill the spot with premium topsoil and sow it with high-quality grass seed to ensure a beautiful lawn takes place where a tree once used. The grindings can be buried into the hole left by the stump if we can pull out the grindings from the stump. Surface and subsurface roots outside the stump are normally not removed but can be done if desired.


What is the estimated stump removal cost?

An average tree stump removal costs $326, with prices ranging from $175 to $516. If the project is extensive, homeowners can expect to spend around $1,033. Small projects can cost as less.

"During a huge snowstorm last winter we were without a plow, I had my 3 month old granddaughter and no way to get out in case of an emergency. One call to Green Valley Tree Service and within a very short time Josh and his crew came and did a great job clearing our very long, unpaved driveway. They were fast, courteous and very fairly priced. I truly recommend them to everyone!"

How long does it take to grind a stump out?

Stump grindings are the leftovers of wood chips from a tree that has been cut down. Wood chips can attract termites because they are made up of wood. Wood is an organic material that often contains cellulose which termites find tasty. Termites will also feed on sap, honeydew, and plant juices produced by plants so they may be attracted to stump grindings as well. We can help you prevent termites and ants from invading your yard by treating the wood chips.

Is it better to grind a stump or remove it?

Grinding a stump is an ecological way to dispose of a tree stump, but it does take a tedious amount of time. It is best for people who want to get rid of the stump quickly and can afford to rent a machine (stump grinder) that grinds it into mulch. Removing the stump is best if you have too many stumps or if you have a big one that you want to use as fire.
