After you have had a tree removed, you will inevitably be left with a tree stump, deeply rooted into the ground. Not only will a remaining stump be an eyesore for years to come, but it also can be an obstacle on your lawn, and even has the potential for pesky suckering growth which will need to be dealt with periodically.
While stump grinding is not always necessary, many people will opt for it at the same time as having their trees cut down. Stump grinders will chew up, or grind, the tree stump well below ground level, ensuring that there is no lingering eyesore and no potential for future suckering growth. This method also allows the property owner to either have a complete, unobstructed lawn or will allow them to use the area where the tree once stood as a planting bed.
Here at Balmers GM, we stock a range of high performance and narrow access stump grinders from Predator, these cutting edge machines are compact, highly effective, and ensure that outstanding productivity is all but guaranteed.
Take a look at all the Predator Stump Grinders we have on offer.
