What is Tree Stump Grinding?
When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, there were many tree stumps left from the clearing procedures. Even homeowners had to deal with taking stump removals seriously even when the task was difficult and demanding.
Even Hurricane Isaac left stumps from century-old trees that were destroyed requiring tree stump grinding services to prevent suckering and fungal root rots. This is what tree stump grinding is all about.
When trees are felled or when they fall, their stumps should be removed with the right equipment and techniques, or removed by a weed killer.
Tree stump grinding is suitable for:
Tree stumps that are left in the ground may lead to problems with suckering where new shoots arise from the trunk and roots.
Completely dead stumps that won’t form suckers but can play host to root diseases like honey fungus.
A rotting stump that has become a hub for home-damaging pests like termites and carpenter ants
Whether you are a homeowner or a business owner with a felled tree that has been removed, you can trust and depend on Big Easy Tree Removal for safe and efficient tree stump grinding services in New Orleans.
We take customer satisfaction seriously and we want every customer to be happy with our work.
Grind a Stump or Remove It?
When a tree is removed, the sturdy stump that once anchored the tree in place is left behind. Should you leave it in your yard untouched, or remove it in one whole piece? Is stump grinding a good option?
Stump removal involves heaving up the bulky tree stump and then digging out all the tree’s widespread roots. It is a more intrusive process that requires a lot of time, elbow grease, and powerful tools to get the job done right. It leaves a large hole that can be an eyesore until it’s filled in.
Stump grinding is much less intensive and involves the use of a machine to completely shred the stump down into small wood chips. The wood chips can be used as mulch for other plants in your landscape. It is a more efficient process but it leaves the tree’s roots behind to naturally decay.
Why Do You Need Tree Stump Grinding?
There are many reasons for choosing to eliminate tree stumps in your yard here in New Orleans. Tree stump grinding involves the intricate process of excavating the stump of your tree without removing the root.

The Most Efficient Way We Do Stump Grinding
Our trained and licensed tree technicians use a stump grinder. It is a special tool that has a large cutter wheel with a number of blades. The grinder is placed on the stump and lowered progressively until the stump is ground out.
This process allows the stump to be broken down into smaller pieces or chips. The roots are also severed and left to break down naturally over time.
If you have a bigger stump that needs to be removed, we use bigger machinery that is suitable to get the work done.
