Stump Grinding In Lee County, FL


Stump Grinding Services In Cape Coral & Fort Myers, FL Areas

We do a lot of stump grinding around the Cape Coral and Fort Myers, FL areas.

Even if your didn’t hire us to remove your tree, we can still come to your home or business and grind down the stump. People often ask us if it’s necessary to remove the tree stump after we remove the tree. The answer is no, it doesn’t have to be removed, this is completely optional. Here are a few reasons to remove the tree stump:

  • Tree stumps can attract insects and have diseases that can spread to other trees on your property. Though live trees are vulnerable to these problems, tree stumps are at a higher risk for infestation and disease.
  • Mowing and trimming around a tree stump is just inconvenient. Hiring us to remove that that tree stump will solve the problem.
  • A tree stump can start to sprout new growth, establish new roots and begin to grow.
  • Simple curb appeal is a big reason, tree stumps are usually pretty ugly. Stump grinding will take care of these eyesores.
  • Not having stump grinding after a tree removal can be a safety hazard. You or other people visiting your home could easily trip over the tree stump or hit it with a mower.

What is stump grinding?

Tree stump grinding on canal in Cape Coral, FL

When we come to your property to remove a tree, we usually come to grind the stump a few days later. We can also come to your property and grind just the stump that has been left behind after a tree removal. We want to remove the stump with as little damage as possible to the property. Stump grinding is the way to do this and is the most cost effective method.

The stump grinder will grind the base of the tree and all major roots. We will determine how deep we need to go based on the type and size of the tree. Our goal is to grind down 4-5 inches below grade level. This will break up the main rooting system. Once we have finished grinding the stump down, all you will have is mulch and dirt where the stump once was.
