Stump grinding is a typical follow up to tree removal. There are countless bad reasons to leave your stumps in place, and too many good reasons to remove them. The stump is removed by excavating a large portion of the area surrounding it until the roots are visible. When the roots are found the tree stump can be manually pulled out of the ground. Using a wheel barrow the stump can be successful transported, and grinded down into compost. The beauty of stump grinding is that it can be repurposed back into the earth.
