Proper Tree Removal and Stump Removal
If you have a dead tree or a stump in your yard or backyard, it may just be time to get it removed. Allowing these features to stay on your property not only become an eyesore, but can also allow insects a place to fester. Though the removal process can be quite burdensome, there are luckily professionals who can remove these unsightly features for you at an inexpensive cost, easing any headaches you may have. Professionals have a multitude of methods for removing stumps and trees, but the method that is used depends on the situation and where you live.
These heavy-duty machines can chew through stumps quickly and efficiently. If you know how to operate one in a safe manner, then it is worth simply renting such a machine and doing the job yourself. However, if you’re unfamiliar with the machinery or if you only have a few stumps to take care of, it is advised to contact a certified, professional arborist to take care of all the stumps (hiring professionals may be more cost effective than renting a stump grinder when you only have a few stumps). Arborists will also dispose of the remains of the stump once the job is finished, relieving any extra work that you may have if you were to do the job on your own.
Depending on the size of the stump, digging through roots and soil around the stump can help weaken its foundation. If you have a heavy duty, off road car or other type of vehicle that is efficient at hauling, hook a chain up to the stump and simply pull the stump out. However, if you notice that the root system is far too deep an extensive to remove with manual digging, it may be a better idea to use a backhoe first.
Backhoes attached to a skidsteer or tractor are very efficient at digging through extensive root systems and helping to dislodge a stump with minimal effort. However, this means of removing dead trees or stumps can be the costliest (and messiest, so expect to do a lot of cleaning up after the job is done).
Drilling and Chemicals
If the dead tree or stump is not causing any immediate problems, and you don’t mind waiting some time until the stump is gone, drilling holes into the tree or stump can help quicken the natural rotting and decaying process. The holes help in giving greater access for both oxygen and water to be absorbed into the wood, promoting more rapid decay.
Chemical stump removers can also be added into the holes, furthering helping the decay process.
Stump and tree removal can be done by professionals, as this will often make the task much less tiresome or time consuming. However, there are many affordable products and rental places that provide high quality machinery to remove stumps without the need to hire someone else to do it for you. Regardless of which option is used, always ensure that the work being done is safe and does not cause any further damage.
