After a tree is cut down, there is always a remaining piece of trunk still attached to the roots, which is aesthetically ugly but above all rather inconvenient if it is close to a road or on a crossing point.
The most effective way to get rid of the roots and the remaining stump is to use a stump grinder.
This machine is able to remove cut pieces of trees and their roots by means of a toothed disc blade, which processes the trunk into small pieces of wood, to be easily disposed of.
The stump grinder is the perfect piece of machinery for professional gardeners or for DIY enthusiasts.
Its cutting action, thanks to its cutting unit with tungsten blades, makes it easy to clear the area from logs and destroy roots. Therefore, it is easy-to-use and delivers an outstanding cutting power.
Generally, these machines consist of:
A cut tree stump may take years to rot and crumble, but there is also a good chance that it grows new shoots for the tree to grow back. In addition to the fact that the wood rots, there is also a risk of diseases developing on the rotten wood, which, within a short time, could also infest the living plants in the area around the trunk.
The best solution, therefore, is to cut the wood deeply with a stump grinder until a small hole is created, which must then be covered with soil to prevent sunlight from reaching the rotten wood and allowing parasitic fungi to grow.
The removal of roots with a classic excavator causes a lot of damage, whereas using a stump grinder allows the stumps to be removed cleanly.
It is therefore an essential tool for removing the remaining stump after cutting the plant and being able to quickly restore the affected area.
