If you have recently cleared trees from your yard, stump grinding might be necessary. Stump grinding is the process of breaking stumps down slowly until they are completely gone. Before you start stump grinding there are a few things that you should know.
Safety gear is the first thing that you need to know about. To protect yourself you should use gloves, padded clothes, and face protection. All of these items are used to protect your body from any debris that might fly your way. If you are missing even a single piece of this safety gear, you should not start stump grinding.
Using a chainsaw to reduce the size of the stump will make the process easier. Before you are ready to grind it do this, and remove any rocks that are around the stump. IF you do not remove the rocks you may cause damage to your grinding machine.
There are specific machines that are used for stump grinding. Make sure to do your research on how to use the machine before you start. Machinery like this can be dangerous, so if you don’t feel comfortable, contact a tree service.
All in all, the process of tree stumping is not too complicated, but it must be done with care.
