If you’ve recently felled a tree in your immediate surrounding, then you should consider removing the stumps. This is recommended to avoid it from suckering and harboring fungal root rots. Depending on the size and kind of tree, the stump can be eliminated either by physical or chemical processes.
Why Remove Stumps If you leave tree stumps in the ground after felling, then you’re creating an avenue for suckering where new shoots can grow. Even though the dead stumps don’t support suckers, they can still play host to root diseases like honey fungus, hence leaving them isn’t a safe decision. You can remove stumps with equipment at any time. However, the best time to remove them is right after the trees are cut down. This also goes for chemical methods where the stump may need to be re-cut to apply the product effectively. From autumn to winter is the best period to use chemical solutions for stump removal.
Our Methods We are dedicated to using proven techniques that are best suited for stump removal. An ideal situation would require the use of physical methods where tools are used for the job. We use high-grade winches to put out the stumps of small trees. When necessary, we use state of the art mechanical mini-excavator to uproot efficiently. This is much easier to do when the tree is felled in a way that leaves the length of the trunk for convenient removal.
We also make use of stump grinders to grind out the main root plate with sawdust left behind. Stump grinders are potentially dangerous to handle and should only be operated by professionals like our team at Tree Services of Rancho Cucamonga. If you hope to replant in the area, then you can remove most of the sawdust and fill the hole made by stump grinding with topsoil. On some occasions, we may have to treat the entire cut surface of the stump by carefully drilling holes along the living edge and pouring the granules into them. Especially in the case of standing trees, we can also make multiple incursions around the bark’s corner. We usually then apply weed killers directly to the stump, with focused placed on its outer ring of living tissue to aids its uptake by the stump. We use a plastic covering on the whole top of the stump to shield it from rain and allow it to do its job.
