Stump grinding is the process of cutting the stump of a tree into smaller pieces that can then be re-used as wood chips. The process is necessary if you are cutting a tree down in your garden, and want to make sure the tree does not grow back again. Ecological Tree Services offer a trusted stump removal service for residents in Brisbane and the surrounding areas.


If you speak to any arborist, they will tell you the importance of stump grinding as a step in the complete removal of trees. When a tree is cut down, there is usually about 60cm-1m of tree remaining, which is called the stump. This part of the tree is still completely connected to the underlying root systems below ground. If the stump is allowed to remain, the tree is still alive and can start to grow back. Stump grinding and removal are necessary if you do not want the tree to grow back at all, allowing for more space to plant new saplings.


Stump grinding is done using a machine known as a stump grinder. It uses a rotating disc covered in sharp tungsten teeth to grind down the stump into small wood chips. The process works by first clearing the area of any hazards. The stump grinder is then brought on-site and situated with the grinder’s teeth over the stump. Once turned on, the stump grinder breaks down the wood into mulch, which can be used as organic soil for your garden.
