Grindforce – Stump Grinding & Tree Root Removal FAQ

Why should I have a stump removed from my property?


On a purely aesthetic level, tree stumps dotted around properties look awful. Many of our Oxford clients have put a lot of work into how their garden looks, and as such they request stump grinding purely to keep it prim and proper. However, stumps can also be tripping hazards, which is especially worrying for Oxford families with young children who love nothing more than to run riot around the garden.


Then there’s the chance that the stump will cause new tree growth nearby, foster pests and bacteria, and take up much needed space that could be used for a landscaping project. Ultimately, there are plenty of reasons to invest in stump removal, and we can’t think of a single reason to keep them lying around!


How do you go about stump removal?


Typically, we’ll carry out stump grinding. This involves us employing powerful, specialist equipment that rapidly cuts stumps into a mixture of wood chips and sawdust. We have stump removal equipment that is specially made to deal with stumps in hard-to-access areas, and our team have undertaken all required health and safety training to operate it.


Can you deal with roots branching off the main stump?


Yes. In addition to stump grinding and stump removal, we offer Oxford clients a tree root grinding and tree root removal service. We’ll grind down protruding and problematic roots, before carefully extracting the full mass beneath the soil.

Tree roots can be a problem for a number of reasons, and can often damage patios, driveways and drainage systems. Don’t let them cause you thousands of pounds in patio damage, get them removed by the experts at Grindforce.

What will happen to the left over wood chips and saw dust?


We can remove all the wood chips and saw dust accumulated via stump grinding or tree root grinding, or leave them with you for use as a mulch. This is especially useful if you’re a keen gardener. Mulches can enrich your soil and encourage the growth of new plants and vegetation.


Does Grindforce solely cover Oxford?


No, Grindforce offers stump removal and tree root removal services to homeowners, companies, contractors and local authorities all across Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Berkshire. We prove especially popular in Abingdon, Oxford, Bicester and Banbury, however.
