Stump Removal vs Stump Grinding - Which One Is Better?

Stump Removal vs Stump Grinding - Which One Is Better?

In Florida, when there's a stump that needs to go, you'll be presented with two main options: stump removal or stump grinding. While they may sound similar, there are important differences to consider and, overall, one option that's better – stump grinding! Stump grinding is less intrusive to your land, not requiring the stump to be completely heaved up and roots to be pulled out.

One of the biggest differences between stump grinding and removal is the amount of intensive work they take. With stump removal, the stump will be heaved out of the ground and then all of the tree's roots need to be dug up and removed.

4 Reasons Your Property May Need Stump Grinding Services

Reasons for removing a tree from your property are numerous, but what should be done with the stump that’s left behind after the tree is gone? Stumps can be completely removed or ground down, depending on the client’s preference.

If you live in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lee County, and nearby Florida areas, here are four reasons to consider having stumps removed from your property with stump grinding services.


1. Stumps can be a haven for unwanted pests such as ants, termites, and more.

When a stump is left behind, it takes a while for the leftover wood to rot and decompose. The rotting and decomposing process attracts bugs that you don’t want in your yard, such as ants, termites, beetles, and more. They will initially be attracted to the stump but will migrate to other areas of your yard and potentially your house. If they spread to your house, you could find yourself looking at a costly pest control bill, particularly if you end up having to get rid of a termite invasion.


2. Stumps take up space in your yard that could be used for more functional purposes.

Let’s face it: stumps aren’t pretty. They sit in your yard and take up valuable space, potentially also decreasing your curb appeal as they begin to rot. If it’s a large stump, it is covering space where you could install a new landscape bed or outdoor living space. Even a small stump can create issues, such as when your lawn is being mowed.
