Many landowners prefer to have tree and stump eradication as they take up valuable space and prevent the construction of new structures. Even if they are covered with vegetation, they can be an eyesore and a nuisance. They can be dangerous and cause injury if they are hidden beneath the foliage.

Professionals should perform most stump removal procedures, especially if they use the equipment. Here are a few methods you might use.
Hand removal of stumps is only possible for small stumps. You will need a chainsaw, digging bar, and pick mattock. Also, a vehicle with a four-wheel drive is required.
Misuse of tools can make the operation ineffective or incomplete. Even though the stump isn't alive, its roots are still spreading a great distance making it difficult to make it give.
The grinder is a popular method of removing stains but it should not be attempted by novices. If you don't want to hire professional help, the equipment can be rented.
