How does the Stump Removal process work?

There are three successfully proven ways to do tree stump removal.
• Firstly you can dig it out. You can do this by loosening the soil that is around the stump until you can see the roots. You then break the roots into smaller pieces making them easier to remove.
• Secondly you can burn the stump. If it is legal to burn the stump you can find bits of wood, place them on top and set your stump alight. Once the stump is fully burnt out the ground will gradually start to sink. You can then add more soil to cover the hole.
• Lastly you can use a chemical stump remover. This chemical stump remover is poured in to holes of the stump. This will help the wood to rot, making it easier for you to remove it.
The easiest way to get rid of a stump is to hire a landscaping company and our team at Scanlon Tree services is here to help!
