Digging Out The Stump


Digging out the stump is the most intrusive and labor-intensive option. The removal process involves digging down and around the stump to expose the roots. The ease of this process depends on the maturity of the tree when it was removed. Young or small tree stumps can be removed in as little as a few hours, while mature trees with deep root systems can take several days. The main benefit of this method is that by completely removing the roots, it leaves the possibility of planting another tree or other types of vegetation in the same place.

Grinding Up The Stump


Grinding the stump is a much quicker and less intrusive method than digging out the stump. Once the stump is removed, the roots will naturally decay, but it can take up to 10 years for the roots to fully break down. The major downside of this method is that it is difficult to plant a new tree or other vegetation on the site because of the remaining root system from the old tree.

Stump Burning

Burning the Stump


Burning the stump is also possible depending on the county and state regulations on open fires. The process usually takes several hours and requires constant attention and additional wood to feed the fire on top of the stump. The downsides of this method are the obvious, the smoke and ash created in the removal process and the root system that is left behind. It is difficult to replant on the site because of the old roots. 

Chemical Stump Removal

Chemically Removing the Stump


Chemical removal can only take place if the stump is older (at least up to a year old). Younger tree stumps are not dry enough. The downsides of this method is the duration (about 2 months) and the danger involved. The chemicals can be dangerous if ingested by children and animals, and the burning process requires constant vigilance and great care.
