Q: After a stump removal, can a tree or
A: Most of the time, the answer is no. However some of the most hardy plant species can begin to recover, though this is very uncommon.
Q: Are stump grindings really useful as mulch or fertilizer?
A: Stump grindings contain lots of ground up tree roots and soil. Tree roots contain a higher ratio of cambium to cellulose than the rest of the tree (cambium is highly beneficial to plant growth).
Q: How long will it take to get an estimate?
A: We try to streamline the process as much as possible. In many cases, a homeowner can send us a picture of the stump (use a quarter as a scale) and we can give an estimate within the hour!
Q: What is left after a stump is ground?
A: Typically, a hole of 6-10 inches deep is left (though this varies on the size of the stump), along with a pile of stump grindings. Some homeowners have us remove the grindings and bring in topsoil and grass seed.
