Stump Grinding Perth - Tree Loppers Perth

Stump Grinding Perth

Once a tree is removed, there will be a stump left behind. At Tree Loppers Perth, we can bring in another piece of machinery to grind the stump left behind. Usually, this is up to 200-300 millimetres below ground level. We will then level out where the stump had been to avoid any holes. You will be able to replant or grow new grass in that area where the unsightly stump once was.

Most often stump grinding services are required by people who have old stumps, visible roots, or a recent tree removal in their yards. Our qualified staff will evaluate the area for stump grinding. As long as there will be no structural damage to any roots or trees, we are proud to offer the stump grinding service to you!

Why do I need to remove tree stump?

Shortly after they’re separated from the tree that once stood in your yard, stumps begin a very slow decaying process. And yes, over time a rotting stump becomes a hub for home damaging pests like termites or carpenter ants.

So, while you can opt to leave the stump and let it rot, the critters that come along in the process might spread out to other plants and trees in your yard or even invade your home. Removing the stump, or grinding it down, is the best way to avoid these pest problems.

Why hire a professional to remove tree stump?

Many Perth residents have tried removing tree stumps without professional help, putting themselves, their property, and other people at risk. Yanking a stump out of the ground with a rope or strap attached to your car or using machinery you don’t know how to operate properly is dangerous.

For example, you could end up dismantling your car, the tree stump could fly straight into the rear windshield or damage the top of your car, or the rope/strap could rip apart and hit someone or something nearby. The stump might even fly over or across the fence, hit somebody or break a window in your home. You could also injure yourself or someone else with the equipment you’re using. Moreover, buying the right equipment can be expensive.

All of this can cost you more than if you had your tree stump professionally removed. Removing a stump is cheaper than cutting down a tree, so it’s important to consider hiring a professional to do the job for you and avoid paying more for machinery and damages caused as a result of doing it yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions about Stump Grinding in Perth

Tree stump grinding will cost from $60 right up to $900. The national average is $95 per stump. The price difference is determined mostly by the diameter of the stump and number of stumps, but other factors like access and root spread do play a roll.
There are several things that add to the price of stump grinding, but the main one is access. The stump grinding machine is very large and very heavy so things like:

Steps
Proximity to windows or other breakables
Narrow access
Underground services
Raised garden bed
There are many reasons to remove a tree stump – aesthetics, you don’t want to constantly mow around it, you want to avoid termites and ants near your house, you want to plant a new tree, you don’t want the stump sprouting into a new tree.
It really depends on five things: size, species, moisture levels (in shade vs sun), insect activity, and structure of the stump. For example, a 20” oak tree stump in a sunny yard might take 18 to 20 years to decompose naturally, whereas the same stump in a shady moist environment might take 12 -15 years to rot away. Just realize that it’s not a quick (or pretty) process.
For one stump, the process can take 15 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the size of the stump, the location, and more.

The size of the hole depends on the size of the stump that was removed. The width will be a little wider than the stump and the depth will be about 6 to 8 inches. Most property owners ask us to fill the hole with the wood chips from the stump.

This is a normal part of the decomposition process as the wood breaks down. Obviously some of these can be poisonous so if there are house pets or children in close proximity you might want to consider grinding the stump.
