Long ago, farmers who wanted to remove tree stumps from their property had to attach long ropes or chains to the stump and attach it to a harness. They would then use several horses or mules to pull the stump out, which involved a lot of time and effort. Fortunately, times have advanced since then, and experts can use advanced equipment to get even the most stubborn stumps out. With grapple trucks, grinders, and loaders, our specialists at TreeCraft have everything it takes to clear your yard. For dependable Jacksonville stump removal and grinding, just give us a call.

What Is Stump Grinding?
The stump grinding process begins with our experts coming to set up the machine. Although it is still sizable, a stump grinder is not as large as one might expect, making it maneuverable about the yard. The machine is adjustable to a variety of heights and comes with a long handle to pull it to the stump’s exact position.
A powerful engine generates the energy for the machine to slice the stump with a sharp blade. This blade is grooved with a serrated edge which allows it to chop the wood into tiny bits. Not only is the machine able to tackle the stump above ground, but it can cut any remaining roots beneath the soil as well. Because of the grinder’s extensive depth, no part of the stump can remain to grow back.
When to Have a Stump Removed
Technically, it is possible to remove a stump at any point in time. However, the sooner that residents seek out professional removal, the easier it is to get rid of the entirety of the stump. Even after a few months, many clients have been shocked to see new sprouts already starting to form.
Some other reasons for arranging for rapid stump removal include:
- Getting rid of a potential tripping hazard, particularly if the stump is hidden from view
- Preparing the lawn or yard for new sod, grass, flowers, or other forms of landscaping
- Preventing pests that are attracted to wood (such as termites or carpenter bees) from coming to the property
How Long Does It Take to Remove a Stump?
The amount of time that it takes for a stump to be removed greatly depends on the diameter. If the tree was still young when it was cut, with a diameter of about 3 inches, it might take just fifteen minutes. However, trees with bigger diameters, which also tend to be older, may take a few hours. The extent of the tree’s root system will also affect the length of time, as well as the kind of soil. No matter how challenging the task might seem, however, our experts at TreeCraft are ready to get it done.
