How Do You Get Rid Of A Stump?

The internet has a whole long list of home remedies for you. Some might be reliable, others not so much. One method that is tried and true is stump grinding.

Stump grinding is, as the name implies, grinding down a stump. Turning the remaining stump down into mulch. Stump grinding can be used on stumps up to six inches above the ground. It can burrow down and destroy 16 inches or more of stump under the ground. Most stumps only have to grind down to 16 inches. If the stump runs deeper, it can still get grinded through. By destroying the stump this way, you ensure no infestations can take hold. It also levels out the ground to remove tripping hazards. Once the grass regrows, it will be like it was never there.
