Strategies for stump removal vary greatly depending on factors such as cost, underground hazards, size, etc. and include:
-Mechanical excavation: where able, fully digging out the root system with a excavator is a quick way to complete large jobs.
-Hand and hydro excavation: Underground lines, close proximity to obstacles, or small scale jobs may dictate removing the stump by hand.
-Stump grinding: Grinding out the stump is a cheap and effective way to quickly restore your yard from that stump. Grinding takes the stump down to a depth enough to reclamate the black dirt on the surface as if the stump were never there. (generally a depth of 4-6 inches, not exceeding 12 inches, as per ground disturbance safety codes)
Stump drilling and rotting: Drilling deep into the stump several times over with long auger bits, the stump can then be treated with safe and environmentally friendly substances to induce a more rapid decay for easy removal.
