The lone stump grinder prowls the town in search of subterranean cellulose like a hungry wolf.
NOT WHAT YOU THINK
The amount of wood beneath the surface usually is much more than people imagine.
ALL SAID AND DONE
Once all of the woody material has been ground, the stump grindings are pushed back into the hole that the grinder has created. This is a service called “grinding and back-filling the stump”. All of the material is left on site, in a pile usually about 10%-20% larger in diameter than the original stump.
At this point, the area is ready for another tree to be planted. If grass is going to be replacing the tree, haul as much of the grindings away and amend the soil to provide a fertile bed for the grass seed to take hold.
