When you contact Charter Oaks we will discuss with you what extent of the tree grinding should be done. We also discuss with you cleanup and what will be done with the excess debris. There are options for leveling the area and back filling the hole with clean soil. All options should be discussed before the job starts. We will see that the project is completed to your satisfaction from start to finish.
After a tree is removed, you do have options to flush or grind the stump. The action depends greatly on the size of the stump and where it is located. We can flush the stump as low to the ground as possible – or, if you want to replant or have no remnants of the tree remaining, we are equipped to grind out any size stump. Depending on the size and type of stump, the amount of chips after stump grinding will vary. No matter the size of the stump, or location, we have the equipment and expertise to handle the job in a safe and efficient manner, including:
- Standard: Cutting the stump as low to ground level as possible (Known as flush cut)
- Optional: Grinding the entire stump
- Optional: Grinding major surface roots
- Optional: Removal of stump grindings to ground level only
- Optional: Removal of all stump grindings and installation of top soil and seed to leave the area as if a tree was never there
It is possible to rent a stump grinder and do it yourself, but this can be expensive and time consuming. Removing the stump yourself and then disposing the chips that are left behind, it will be a full day of work. That does not include finding the tree stump grinder.

Why Remove a Stump?
When, unfortunately, a tree has to be cut down, their roots continue to grow and produce new growth. To start the decaying process of the root system it is important to grind tree stumps. According to National Arborists, failing to grind away tree stumps can result in other trees becoming infected. Fungi can infect tree stumps that have been left after a tree has been cut down. This can lead to fungi spores being released into the soil and then spread to your healthy trees. This in turn causes your healthy trees to be infected and further damage occurs. Tree stumps can also be an eyesore and safety hazard on your property. They can create trip hazards and make lawn care a more difficult task. The professionals at Charter Oaks have the expertise and equipment to grind any size tree stump with minimal damage to your property.
