Number one most asked question about stump grinding: Bowie MD

Can I grind the stump myself?

You can, but we don’t recommend it.

Removing stumps by yourself can be expensive, and it is hard work – it is also EXTREMELY dangerous. Not only are you using machinery that you are not familiar with but the process itself is unpredictable. It’s better to be safe rather than sorry. Our licensed stump grinding and removal specialists in Bowie, MD will remove your stumps flawlessly. You won’t remember they were there! 

What is stump grinding in Bowie, MD?

Stump grinding uses stump removal machines to grind up your stumps and turn them into mulch. 

Mulch is excellent for your garden. Mulch provides protection and moisture for your yard and plants. So, as plants begin to bloom, it is the best time to start taking care of your yard.  

The mulch created from your stump will also be used to fill up the whole left of the stump. It will be like there was never even a stump there! 

But what if it’s a huge stump? 

This is a great question; there are different approaches to removing a stump depending on the size of the stump. 

  • Large stump removal: The stump will be ground down about 12 inches below the surface in order to remove roots. We will provide the machinery and trucks to remove the stump. Our drivers will back the truck and our stump removal machine across your yard to remove the stump. 
  • Small stump removalThe stump removal machinery does not need to be moved into place by a truck like large stump removal machinery. These machines fit through a 36-inch wide opening and will be able to bring stumps 2 to 6 inches below the surface.
