A tree stump is the bottom foundation of the tree which grows just above the soil and runs into the ground.
You may want a stump removed for renovations, land clearing, gardening, landscaping, deck building, to build a swimming pool or even just to create more free space, the list could go on. Tree stumps, and their roots, can run for meters or even kilometers beneath the soil which can make them very, very difficult to remove using conventional methods.
Tree Removal Geelong uses a professional stump grinder to remove the entire tree stump. A stump grinder is a professional machine that involves expertise in order to operate accordingly. That is the main reason why it should only be operated by a trained professional. The machine uses petrol as its fuel source and consists of a steel cutting wheel and hydraulically controlled arm. The cutting wheel is situated at the end of the arm and contains extremely sharp teeth specifically designed to cut off stumps. The steel wheel spins at a very high speed allowing it to grind and cut through the tree stump.
