How Does Stump Grinding Work?

A stump grinder chews away at the stump of wood that’s left after a tree has been cut down. All stump grinders use a powerful, rotating blade that rips into the wood as it turns. The blade’s teeth cut the stump of wood into small pieces. The operator guides the blade over the entire stump as the blade reduces the wood to chips and takes the stump down to well below ground level. This means that it will no longer be visible within your garden.

Why Remove The Stump?

In addition to the stump itself being unsightly, laying new turf is an extremely difficult task while it is still in the ground. Whats more, if new plants are placed around the stump, there is a chance that they can become infected and die while the stump decays. These as just a couple of reasons why stumps should be removed.

Other Stump Treatments

If your stump cannot be accessed by a stump grinder, do not worry, we at Watson & Price Tree Services can help. We use ECO plugs to degrade the stump and stop regrowth while maintaining an environmentally friendly approach.  This kills the stump effectively without causing damage to the surroundings within your garden.

    Really great job removing tree and significantly reducing the size of a number of bushes we have. Really efficient and professional team and knowledgeable about what is best for particular trees and shrubs. Highly recommend! Thanks Alex and team!

  • Natalie Mackintosh

    Alex and Dan offer an incredibly professional and reliable service, second to none. Their quick response to my enquiry was followed up with a site visit, outside of office hours, and a competitive quote. Their work was exemplary and they left the garden tidier than before their visit. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to all.

  • Matt Styles

  • Quintin Ramsay-Lewis

    Nice guys and at competitve rates. Did a great job at removing two small trees, thinning out another two and trimming a very large Laurel hedge. They were very professional and left the garden tidy when they left. Would highly recommend.

    Can’t find fault with anything Alex and Dan did, they cleaned up thoroughly and left the garden as they found it. They arrived on time and did a really professional job.Also gave good advice. Would definitely use them again.

    Dan and Alex did a great job advising us about the trees in our garden, helping us decide how best to manage them. They trimmed a large maple tree which was getting out of hand, shaping it into a much better size for our garden. They also removed a pesky self-seeded ash from our boundary. They were efficient, tidy and courteous to our neighbours. I would highly recommend their services and will use them again in the future!

    Alex and his team did an outstanding job for us. Some very large conifers taken down so expertly with no impact on neighbours. Lots of other tree work during the two days they were with us chipping and removing all waste. Extremely tidy and very polite helpful guys. We've arranged for further follow up work. Can't recommend them highly enough.

    By far the best and most affordable tree surgery work I've ever had carried out. Alex followed up my initial enquiry immediately with a site visit, gave excellent advice and arranged to do the job when it was best for the trees - when they'd gone into their winter mode and stopped growing for the year. The job was duly carried out on the date agreed and the trees are all smaller but still look very natural. Alex's friendly team also gave my neighbour some helpful tree advice, chopped up some logs, removed an old Eucalyptus trunk, at no extra charge, and swept up. Will definitely use again.
