During the course of our work at J. Salisbury Tree Surgery, we fell or dismantle trees because of damage, disease or the need for land development. This leaves a stump in the ground which, left unattended, can be a tripping hazard or a place for pests and bacteria to thrive. Stumps also stand in the way of future landscaping or construction work. We cover Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Sussex, Surrey and Kent with stump grinding services.
Stump grinding machinery allows our tree surgeons to perform a fast and efficient removal, leaving our domestic and commercial customers free to use the cleared land as they wish. All personnel at J. Salisbury Tree Surgery receive training in the safe use of use of this specialist equipment.

A stump grinder in an innovative piece of heavy machinery that mechanically reduces remnants and needs a trained tree surgeon to operate it. This equipment has a petrol-driven motor, a hydraulic arm and a cutting wheel with sharp steel teeth. The wheel, positioned at the end of the hydraulic arm, spins at a high speed and this helps it to cut through stumps with minimal effort on the part of the operator.
Stump grinding is a popular service in Burgess Hill, Crawley, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and the South East with those who have recently had trees felled in their gardens, or with commercial clients who need to clear stumps ahead of a proposed landscaping, construction or drainage project.
Compared to a stump removal using winch and digging systems, stump grinding is more efficient and effective. It ensures full removal of the stump to eliminate safety risks, to reduce issues with honey fungus and to kill off nesting habitats for insects and pests. For those who already have a developed landscaping theme, stump grinding has much less of a physical impact and even leaves a mulch you can use for other purposes when gardening.
Some homeowners leave stumps in place to decay and decompose naturally but this takes time and is a very incomplete way of dealing with the issue. Digging out a tree stump leaves a gaping hole that needs backfilling and could present a danger, especially to children, if left unchecked.
Our tree surgeons advise our Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Sussex, Surrey and Kent customers to always consider stump grinding as the most effective method for a complete stump removal.
