Reasons to Remove a Stump

After going through the trouble to have a tree removed, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to leave the stump sitting there. A few of the top reasons to remove stumps from your yard include:

  • They are Eyesores – No one likes gazing out into the yard and seeing old stumps dotting the landscape. They look even worse when weeds and other plants start growing on them, which inevitably happens over time.
  • They Take Up Valuable Space – Most people want the widest, clearest yards possible, and stumps really get in the way.
  • They are Hazardous – Some stumps are obvious, but others get camouflaged by grass, weeds and other plants and become tripping hazards. Nothing is worse than stubbing your toe on an old tree stump.

Types of Stump Removal

Stump grinding is the go-to method for stump removal, using a grinder to chip away the stump up to 16″ below grade. Tree Felling Group offers efficient grinding for front yard stumps and most backyard stumps, with a grinder fitting through a standard 80cm gate. Pricing starts at R1,200 per stump in Pretoria and Centurion.


 It takes proper tools and techniques to remove stumps by hand. First, use a chainsaw to clear out the lower branches. Cut the trunk and leave the leverage. To expose the roots, use a shovel, pick mattock and dig bar. With an ax, cut the biggest roots. Pull the trunk, cutting the exposed roots. If stuck, use a chain and a four-wheel-drive truck to pull the trunk until uprooted


How to Use the Space

After removing a tree stump, fill in the hole with topsoil, spread grass seed over the top, and then cover it with mulch hay. Water it well and monitor its progress. After grass has covered the spot, you can use it however you see fit. Even if you choose to just keep the spot grassy and clear, you will love how much better your yard looks.

Assessing a Tree Stump

The difficulty in removing the stump is determined by factors such as age and size. It’s easier to pick up older and small stumps. Consider the total number of stumps; it may be difficult to manually remove a lot. The choice of appropriate stump removal techniques is encouraged by this guide.

One of the easiest methods to kill a tree stump and its root system is to use 100 percent Epsom salt. The magnesium sulfate in the Epsom salt draws the essential moisture from the plant in a process called desiccation, which is the drying out of a living organism.

Typically we grind the stumps 10 to 15 cm below grade. Roots and the heart of the stump below that will remain. Over time these will rot out and should not be a problem. You may be able to plant small shrubs or grasses directly in the area where we grind the stump.


Absolutely! In fact, burning a stump is probably the easiest way to get rid of it.
