There are some cases that even when the tree has been cut that the stump still remains for a long time. While some might think that there is no harm in letting the stump remains in its location, however, this can be unsightly and can dangerous at times. If a stump is in your property, make sure to have a stump removal company take the stump out for you.
There are two ways professionals can get rid of the stump. They can either do a stump removal or stump grinding Purga.
Stump removal. This technique is actually more difficult than stump grinding since the removal group will have to take the root ball of the tree out. The process is more difficult since the root ball can be four to ten times the size of the tree. This is why, when you have the stump remove using this process, you will find a large hole in the ground after they are done.
Stump grinding. This technique is more use by many than the first one as the process is easier and there will be no huge hole left after the process is done. The stump grinding professional will use a stump grinder and will grind the stump into small pieces. Doing so will allow you to use the small pieces as a ground cover or a mulch. After the stump has been ground, this will be covered by dirt with the remains decaying over time.
Between the two, stump grinding is more practical and time-saving since there will be no huge hole in the ground once they are done.
