Why You Should Get Rid of Stumps
Once you have a tree successfully removed, it is not logical to let the stump sit there. The sight of a yard dotted with old stumps is not entertaining. The landscape looks even worse when the stumps are covered with weeds, which certainly happens as time goes by. Additionally, stumps sit on useful space leaving you with a cramped yard. Some stumps are noticeable from a distance, but others get camouflaged by weeds, grass, and other plants thus becoming tripping hazards. Tree Removal Joliet IL is a team of professional stump removers that offers removal services in Joliet, Illinois, and its environs.
Preliminary Assessment of Stumps
Some stumps are eliminated faster than others, explaining the need for different techniques. Tree Removal Joliet IL is ever prepared and knows which approaches to use for any given job. For instance, it is easier to handle stumps of the pines than those which shed during the autumn. Pine trees have comparatively flat and wider rooted stumps than those of the deeply rooted deciduous trumps. Upon arrival on the site, the experts carry out a quick assessment to determine which approach best suits the job.
What Determines the Difficulty of Stump Removal?
The difficulty of removing a stump is generally based on the size and age of the parent tree. In other words, removing older stumps is easier than is the case with fresh ones. Likewise, small stumps are more readily removed than large ones. Workmen from Tree Removal Joliet IL also consider the total number of stumps that need to be removed before deciding on the removal method to use.
A quick do-it-yourself stump removal technique is to grind. With the stump grinder, you can remove several stumps in a day. Alongside the grinder, it is essential to have a mattock, shovel, rake and a chainsaw. The mattock and shovel become handy when dragging pebbles away from the base, and you need the chainsaw to dig into the stump. However, you might hardly need these tools after the job is done. It is less costly to seek the services of an expert as this also gets the work done better.
Using a grinder to remove stumps is a bit tricky and requires expertise. With the help of a hydraulic lever, the grinder wheel is raised a couple of inches above the stump. After turning the grinder on, it is let down about 3 or 4 inches alongside the lever. Experience shows that the cut should be about 4 inches deep before the grinder wheel is moved forward. For safety, we repeat this process to ensure the stump goes not less than 4 inches underground.
In relation to regulations of the trade, our technicians always wear protective equipment whenever using a stump grinder. Of importance are goggles that secure the eyes from flying wood chips and aprons to keep the body safe. Our charges are friendly, and you only pay proportionally to the amount of work done. As an added bonus, we carry the stump from the site. We also offer professional advice on how to get the best out of the abandoned land. Reclaim your yard by calling us today.
