Stump removal consists of grinding out a tree stump approximately 4 to 6 inches below the ground. When a stump is ground, a large amount of wood chips are left in the yard.
These chips can be used as mulch or disposed of in the garbage; however Desoto Tree Service is only responsible for removing the stump, not removing or transferring the chips that are a result of the stump removal.
We recommend that once a stump is removed, the customer should remove the tree chips from the area and apply dirt over that area followed by a seed or sod, rather than replanting another tree or bush over the same area.
The roots are typically not removed unless specified on the contract, however when the surface roots are removed, they are typically ground flush with the earth. Larger roots (3 inches in diameter or greater) are ground one inch below the surface.
*****Stump removal is not included in the price of the tree removal, this is an extra service and will be charged separately.********
