Jacksonville Stump Grinding Service
TREE STUMP & DEBRIS REMOVAL
When trees have to be removed, for one reason or another, the only evidence that a tree once stood, is the stump of the tree left behind. Though some homeowners prefer not to spend any additional money removing the tree stump there are definite reasons it is a good idea. The first issue is having an unsightly tree stump still lingering in your yard. This can devalue your property and create an unsightly mess. Tree stumps can also create a hazard to playing children and animals, damage to lawn mower equipment and the opportunity for nesting of insects. Most homeowners are meticulous about their yards appearance and the removal of a tree stump is a must. Different varieties of tree stumps can even sprout new tree grown causing additional problems that will have to be addressed later on. Tree stumps take an unusually long time to completely decay away and the rotting can cause problems. As the stump rots it usually causes underground pockets of decay which is probably the most important reason for removing a tree stump. Decaying stumps will attracts many different kinds of insects, from red ants, fire and wood ants, beetles, wood-boring pests, to even termites. These insects will then present a problem for additional damage to lawns, homes and any wood-bearing structures.
Eagerton Tree Service recommends that tree stumps be remove unless the stump is in a remote location and provides slope protection to the surrounding ground preventing erosion.
Old stumps can be a pain and grinding those old stumps into mulch is an important part of the tree removal process. Stump grinding is a specialized process and needs to be completed by a stump grinding professional. This is accomplished by the use of a high- speed stump grinding machine that processes the old stump into a finely mulched material easily removed. It is important to remove the by-product of the ground stump as well. Grass will not grow over ground stump debris and even though the hole left can decay, it is a good idea to get as much of the material out. The stump grinding usually takes as much of the old stump down to 10-15 inches below ground level. Additionally, some roots may need to be ground away, or pruned to alleviate their potential damage to sidewalks, driveways and foundations.

How Expensive is it to Remove a Tree Stump?
At Eagerton Tree Service we provide free written estimates for all our services including stump grinding. The stump grinding cost depends on a number of factors.
- How large is the stump and are there additional roots that need to be addressed can determine the amount of time it will take to complete the project?
- Are there other concerns like removing any fencing or underground hazards like irrigation or cable lines that need to be temporarily moved?
- Are we removing the wood chips above the surface of the ground? Usually we rake all wood chipped ground debris into an organized pile.
- Did we remove the tree and are there multiple tree stumps that need to be addressed?
These and other factors can have a bearing on the price but these considerations are small compared to leaving a raised tree stump in the ground and the complications that will arise later on.
