One problem with stumps is that no matter how far down residents may try to cut them, there is a good deal of wood remaining directly beneath the ground. This is why it is a good idea to reach out to Tackett Tree Experts. With our Vandalia stump removal services, homeowners can significantly improve the appearance of their landscapes.
The Benefits of Stump Removal
It is not enough to just cut down a tree that has been taking up space or blocking sunlight. Residents should also make sure to have the tree’s stump removed, which often has a system of roots connected to it below the surface.
There are several benefits that come from investing in stump removal, including:
- Improved aesthetics – Stumps can be unsightly and can detract from the overall beauty of the property. By removing them, residents can create a more visually appealing outdoor space.
- Increased usable yardage – It can be difficult to use the outdoor area of a front or backyard with stumps taking up so much space. Removing them can open up more space for activities such as gardening, landscaping, and other outdoor activities.
- Avoidance of tripping hazards – Stumps can be a safety hazard, particularly if they are hidden by grass or other vegetation. Removing them can help prevent accidents and injuries.

Grinding is a critical technique that involves using a specialized machine to get rid of the stump even below the surface. Expert technicians will first assess the stump to determine the best approach to grinding it. Factors such as the size, location, and type of tree will influence the grinding process.
After clearing the area of stones and other large debris, an operator will carefully use a special cutting wheel to grind down the stump. The machine may need to be turned around the stump several times to ensure that all parts of the stump have been ground down. After the stump grinding process, a hole will be left in place of the stump. Property owners can choose to fill this hole with landscaping materials such as soil, grass seed, or other suitable options.
Will Stump Grinding Stop Regrowth?
When a tree is cut down, the roots and stump can continue to produce new shoots, which can lead to the regrowth of the tree. Stump grinding removes the visible part of the stump, but it does not remove the roots entirely. However, grinding the stump down to below ground level can significantly reduce the chances of regrowth. The roots that remain underground are still capable of producing new shoots, but these will be smaller and weaker without the support of the stump. Rather than trying to extricate every last little root, using an herbicide on any small upshoot is the best way to finalize the tree’s deterioration.
