FAQ for Stump Grinding in Forest Park

Why shouldn't I remove a tree stump myself?

When you hire a professional for a tree removal service, a stump grinding process does not always come with the package. The tree removal service will leave behind a tree stump and some homeowners will try to remove it themselves. However, this is not a good idea. A tree stump is extremely hard to remove on your own especially when all you have are the basic household tools. Professional machinery that is specifically designed to grind a stump is the only solution. Also, this machinery is expensive and dangerous. It is best that you hire an expert on stump grinding in Forest Park to remove the tree stump for you because a professional has proper training on handling the equipment.

Will the tree stump grow back?

It is very unlikely for the tree stump to grow back if you hire a professional team for a stump grinding in Forest Park.

A professional on tree stump grinding in Forest Park will advise you on the matter and make sure that the potential of a regrowth is completely eliminated.

What will happen to the roots of the tree?

A stump grinding in Forest Park gets rid of everything including the tree stump itself and the lateral roots. However, service providers that offer a stump grinding service vary in their processes. You may find a company that will provide you with a standard stump grinding service and will only grind the stump, leaving the roots under the surface of the earth. Make sure to talk to the professionals you will hire and discuss your issue about the roots being left on the site. A competent company will address your concerns and meet your expectations as much as possible.
