The process of stump grinding typically begins with the arrival of the stump grinder at the job site. The grinder is a specialized machine that has a spinning blade or wheel with sharp teeth. The operator will position the grinder over the stump and turn it on, allowing the blade to make contact with the wood of the stump.
As the blade of the grinder spins, it chips away at the wood, breaking it down into small pieces. The operator will slowly move the grinder around the stump, grinding it down to a depth of 6-8 inches below the surface. Deeper grinding can be done upon request. This ensures that the entire root system of the tree is removed, which is important for preventing regrowth. Once the stump is ground down, the operator will spread the mulch evenly across the site, and then clean up any debris to leave the area tidy.
