Watford Stump Grinding
Stump grinding is where the base of the tree and leftover roots are physically removed after the tree has been felled. In many cases, the stump can be left in the ground to naturally decay over time; the nutrients of the stump will return to the ground and allow woodland and fungi to thrive. Despite this being the best solution for nature, this isn’t always possible, convenient or advantageous for the landowner.
We can carry out this task of removing the stump with our own specialist portable equipment, which allows us access to the smallest of spaces and can remove stumps of any size. The major benefit of stump removal is that it helps lower the risk of pathogens and disease being spreading to other trees and plants in the immediate area. When the stump is the remainder of an unhealthy tree, the spread of disease is entirely possible and quite likely. Another common reason for removing remaining stumps are where the land is being developed. In these situations, the stump is usually required to be removed fully to ensure it does not cause damage or become a potential hazard.
There are two main ways to remove a stump. Firstly, the stump can be removed by being physically dug out of the ground with equipment such as a winch. This is usually only feasible for small tree stumps and becomes a labour-intensive and time-consuming task when the tree stump is too large.
Secondly, the stump can be ground out by one of our portable machines, leaving behind a fine sawdust.
Both ways will guarantee the tree will not grow back as all roots would have been removed. Using our machinery, we remove the stump by mechanically grinding it down below the surface to a maximum depth of about 10 inches. This process can be limited by access or by objects, or structures close to it. Although it is possible to privately hire a stump grinder, this task can be dangerous to those who are inexperienced and unsupervised. Take the hassle, danger and worry out of stump grinding, and leave it to one of our professionals at Majestic Tree Care.
Another common reason for the removal of the tree stump is to improve the aesthetics of the area. In doing this, the area can be re-landscaped and redesigned to become your dream outdoor space.

Over the many years of caring for trees, shrubs, and hedges, for both domestic and commercial customers, Majestic Tree Care has built up an unbeatable reputation. All our Tree Surgeons are fully trained, fully qualified and have vast experience and knowledge in a variety of different pruning and felling methods:
Crown thinning – Small branches are removed to thin the crown, reducing the weight & wind resistance of the tree
Crown lifting – Lower branches are carefully removed to increase the amount of light passing through the tree
Crown deadwooding – Branches may naturally die off but can take a while to decay, removing the branches early keeps the tree safe
Crown reductions – The height of the tree is reduced to decrease shading & loss of light, making the tree more suited to its environment
Directional felling – A wedge is removed from the bottom of the tree, bringing it down safely in one piece
Sectional dismantling – Where space is restricted, the tree is carefully dismantled and brought down piece by piece
