Stump Grinding vs. Stump Removal vs. Tree Removal
Although the terms “stump grinding” and “stump removal” are used interchangeably in some circles, they are, in fact, two different processes. Stump grinding uses a stump planer that is attached to a backhoe to grind the stump down. The pieces of the grounded stump can be shoveled out while the remaining pieces will naturally decompose.
Stump removal, on the other hand, involves digging all around the stump to expose its roots. Once the roots are exposed, they are systematically cut using handsaws, chainsaws, and hatchets. After the roots of the tree have been cut, the entire stump may be removed from the ground. Tree removal services are similar to stump removal, but with the added steps on the frontend that involve cutting the tree down branch-by-branch, which is followed by sawing the trunk down to a low stump.

3 Reasons to Eliminate Unsightly Tree Stumps from Your Property
Did you know that stump removal is for more important reasons than just how they look? Here are three reasons you should consider this tree care service from Eisenhower.
Pest Infestation Prevention
Tree stumps are like magnets for termites, carpenter ants, and other wood-boring insects. Once these uninvited guests have made their way onto your property, clearing them out can pose a significant challenge. They may even spread to your home. Stump grinding and removal is the only way to eliminate the termite habitats that rotting tree stumps and roots can create.
Stop Tree Disease in Its Tracks
Fungi and infectious diseases love tree stumps. They have no problem growing and thriving there, and some types of fungi can be dangerous for curious pets or children. Additionally, fungi and diseases have the potential to spread to nearby, healthy trees and landscaping features. When dealing with diseased trees and stumps, tree removal services are the way to go.
Prevent Foundation or Pipe Damage
A tree stump still has active roots. In an effort to seek out water, the roots can continue to grow and spread. Occasionally, the roots of a tree stump will come into contact with underground pipes or your home’s foundation, causing them to crack or crumble, leading to property damage and compromised utility function. Homeowner’s can mitigate this problem by booking stump grinding and removal services.
