Fast Tree Stump Grinding in Perth

When it comes time to remove a tree from your property, there are a few different options available. Some homeowners choose to simply cut the tree down and leave the stump behind. While there is nothing technically wrong with this approach, the stump can be unsightly at best and, in many cases, can create an obstacle in the garden that has to be mown around and otherwise avoided whilst working outside.

But removing a stump is easier said than done. Manually digging a stump out requires a great deal of time, energy and sweat – not to mention an arsenal of tools:

  • Chainsaw
  • Axe
  • Shovel
  • Garden hoe
  • Pick

Even for those who have all of the necessary tools, the requisite skills and the time needed to properly dig a stump out, few would relish the idea of tackling such an unsavoury task.

Fortunately, digging that stump out is not necessary. Tree Surgeons of WA offer fast and effective tree stump grinding in Perth and the surrounding area. We can help you completely remove the stump so that you can move forward with new landscaping without having to work and plan around the stump.  

How Does a Stump Grinder Work?

A stump grinder is a large and sophisticated piece of machinery, but it operates in a relatively straightforward manner. They vary in size depending on the size of tree that they are intended to work on. But most operate by essentially the same mechanism.

The grinder chews through a tree trunk with a high-speed disk with fixed carbide teeth. Hydraulic cylinders push the cutter wheel into the stump from above and move it laterally through the stump to remove it. Vertical grinders also exist, and are usually attached as a secondary apparatus on a vehicle such as a tractor or excavator.  

Weighing the Benefits of Tree Removal in Perth

We’re a full-service tree care company in Perth, and we have extensive experience working in planting, removing and transplanting trees. We understand that it is sometimes necessary to remove a tree – whether for practical considerations, aesthetic reasons or safety concerns.

As trees grow, their feeder roots can develop from the circumference of a toothpick to that of a soda can. Needless to say, as that growth and development occurs, damage can occur to any structures in the way, including the following:

  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Walls
  • Fences
  • Pavements
  • Foundations

However, we also encourage our clients to explore other options when available. It’s more important than ever before that we conserve our resources here in Western Australia, and that includes looking for opportunities to leave well-established, mature trees where they are. In many cases, we’re able to find workarounds and alternatives that allow the homeowner to keep a cherished tree on property without encouraging any more damage to the house and surrounding structures.
