What Is Stump Grinding?
What is Fort Lauderdale’s stump grinding? Stump grinding is the procedure of using special powered grinding tools with a blade with ten inches in size to grind and cut away a stump slowly.
Many companies typically grind stumps down four to six inches, but you can request it go deeper. The remaining stump can be left standing, or you may choose to have it entirely removed without grinding. You may also request the removal of some of the roots from the lawn. American Arborists offer solid reasons to remove that stump.
