Tree Stump Removal In North London

Most of our clients in North London request tree stump removal services for aesthetic purposes. 

Tree stumps can be an eyesore, ruining the overall aesthetic appeal of your outdoor space. 

Aside from the visual aspect, there are several other reasons why you should consider tree stump removal:

  • Stumps may pose a safety hazard, especially if they are obscured by grass or foliage, causing potential tripping accidents.
  • They can occupy valuable space in your garden, limiting your options for building, landscaping or outdoor activities.
  • Stumps from diseased trees can harbour pathogens, potentially spreading the disease to other nearby plants.
  • Leaving stumps in the ground may lead to regrowth, as the remaining roots may sprout new shoots.
  • Rotting tree stumps can attract insects and other pests, which may eventually infiltrate your home.

Tree stump removal is essential to prevent these issues and ensure a safe and beautiful garden.

How to remove a tree stump in North London

There are a few methods to remove a tree stump; however, a specialist stump grinder is often the most suitable solution. 

A stump grinder is a purpose-built piece of machinery designed to grind tree stumps out of the ground they occupy.

We have a range of versatile stump grinders which allow us to grind stumps of all sizes in confined and challenging locations.

Better still, our experienced stump-grinding experts are fully qualified and insured by a £10m public liability and employee liability policy.

Other ways of removing a tree stump in North London

While stump grinding is usually the best method to remove a tree stump, there are a few alternatives, some of which include:

Grubbing or digging out tree stumps:

If access allows, you can dig out tree stumps using an excavator. 

However, this method can be messy and cause significant ground damage.

Without mechanical assistance, digging a stump out of the ground is time-consuming and labour-intensive. 

Poisoning tree stumps:

Poisoning tree stumps using glyphosate-based chemical tree stump removers will prevent regrowth and accelerate decomposition. 

With chemical stump removers, read and follow instructions carefully, as they can be hazardous to health. 

The safest way to poison a tree stump is by using eco-plugs and having them installed by a trained professional. 

Our stump removal specialists are fully insured and trained in the safe application of eco-plugs.

Burning the stump:

In theory, it’s possible to burn tree stumps out of the ground, although this method has many potential risks.

When burning out tree stumps, the main risk is that the fire may spread to other trees or become out of control.

There is also the impact of the smoke to consider, and burning may be restricted or prohibited by local authorities.

The best way to remove a tree stump

In most situations, we recommend stump grinding as the best way of removing tree stumps. 

Furthermore, we suggest using eco-plugs or a chemical stump killer to prevent regrowth.
