Stump Grinding

Stump Grinding Service Northern VAStump grinding is an intricate process that removes the stump of the tree without removing the root. This is often used when you want to maintain the health of the soil around the tree. A stump grinder mechanically grinds out the stump leaving a fine sawdust as a residue. The root of the tree is left to decay and the residue will eventually mix into the soil. This levels the ground and eliminates the need for extra filling. However, it is not unusual to see sprouts from the root with stump grinding. 

One of the advantages of tree stump grinding is that the stump can be ground down to your desired height. Stump grinding is preferred for many reasons due to it being environmentally friendly and it is often cheaper and easier to achieve.

Stump Removal 

Tree Removal Services Northern VirginiaProfessional stump removal involves pulling the stump and roots from the ground with heavy machinery creating a large hole in the ground. This guarantees that there is no chance of regrowth or sprout. However, stump removal damages the environment around the stump because chemicals with a high concentration of potassium nitrate can be used to soften the soil around the stump for easier removal. 


Factors such as the diameter of the stump, age of the tree, soil type, root system, and the number of stumps determine the cost of stump excavation. Generally, for stump removal, it is more expensive than stump grinding. However, it is typically quicker to remove a stump than to grind it.
