Tips for stump removal
Using fire to remove the stump
It is an effective method if there is sufficient open space around and the stump is not large. However, you need to obtain permission from the local fire department.
Also, this method will not destroy the roots and there could be a possibility of getting the tree sprouted again.
If everything is favorable, then you can move ahead by drilling holes in the trunk. Pour kerosene in the holes and light scrap wood on the surface. Monitor the fire. The method works slowly, but it burns the wood from deeper within the stump.
Dig the tree stump out
Digging the stump out is another way, but it is quite time-consuming, mind it. You need to dig out the stump and roots as well. You can hire a professional like SA Tree Recyclers. They are experts in that, especially in removing stumps of palm trees. You can inquire about palm tree removal cost first. They will come with digging equipment to handle the job.
Grinding the stump
It is the fastest method of getting rid of an annoying stump. You can either hire a tree removal specialist or rent a stump grinder machine to break apart the wood in the trunk and tree roots.
To grind a tree stump, the removal specialists will start by trimming the stump with a chainsaw, digging around it, and removing rocks if any. The next step is to use the cutter machine to chip away the wood and cut roots connected to the stump.
Depending on the size of the stump and the complexity of the work, it may take two hours to a full day.
Once the entire stump is removed, the hole will be filled with soil, mulch, or concrete.
Thus, you will remove the troublesome stump from the garden, backyard, pathway, or ground.
