When trees are felled or fall, their stumps can be removed to prevent suckering and fungal root rots, this is called stump grinding. Often large and heavy, stumps can be removed with the right equipment and technique to leave an uninhibited site suitable for re-planting or further development.
If removal of the entire stump is not an option, poison can be administered through environmentally friendly methods, leaving the stump and roots to decay naturally over time. Dead stumps will not coppice or re-shoot but may provide habitat for a variety of hosts including root diseases such as honey fungus. It is important to choose the correct course of action based on the site and its intended use after the tree has been removed.
We will advise on the correct course of action based on a site specific assessment in line with the clients needs.
