Tree Stump Removal Services in the Twin Cities

Tree removals can often leave behind unsightly stumps, especially if the tree was removed quickly to avoid damage to the home or property. But leaving a tree stump in place does more than make your yard look less attractive — it can damage lawnmowers and yard equipment, attract pests like carpenter ants, or even cause injuries as people trip and fall over the stump. That’s why Bratt Tree Company recommends stump clearing at the same time as the tree is removed.

Our Stump Removal Process

When you need an expert to remove a tree and eliminate the stump, talk to our team at Bratt Tree Company. We will evaluate the situation, provide an accurate quote, and schedule an appointment to remove the tree and stump if approved. Our team will remove the tree, carefully dig around the stump, and remove it using the best methods for the circumstances.

Once the stump is out, our team can fill the hole left behind with soil, if needed, and we will leave the work area clean and neat so that you can restore the beauty of your lawn.

Types of Stump Removal

Our team will remove the tree using the best methods for the circumstances, such as the following:

  • Grinding: One of the most effective methods, stump grinding is especially useful for larger stumps. Specialized grinding blades are used to shred the stump layer by layer, turning it into mulch that can benefit your landscaping.
  • Digging: When the tree is smaller, the stump can be dug out using a combination of heavy equipment and shovel work, cutting any roots that extend laterally below the surface. If the tree is too close to a structure, digging it out may not be an option.
  • Burning: Fire or chemicals can be used to burn or break down the stump, allowing any remnants to be easily removed. A fire should only be used in relatively open areas.

Common Reasons for Stump Removal

An old, rotten tree stump in the yard can be a nuisance and an eyesore. Here are a few common reasons that homeowners may opt for stump removal:

  • To make the yard look better and increase curb appeal.
  • Eliminate the trip hazard the stump creates
  • Avoid infestations of carpenter ants, termites, bees, and other insects.
  • Avoid damage to lawnmowers, ATVs, and other equipment.
  • Prevent the tree from regrowing
  • Maintain a healthy lawn and soil
  • Prevent the spread of diseases or infections from the dead tree

Frequently Asked Questions About Tree Stump Removal

How deep do you grind a stump?

Ideally, the stump should be ground down to 12 to 16 inches below the surface to allow new plants to grow over the top of the stump.

Shallower depths are possible but may limit what can be planted over the stump.

How long will a stump take to decompose naturally

It depends on the stump’s size, but it can take 15 years or more to rot away naturally.

Stump removal or grinding is a quick way to eliminate unsightly stumps and avoid damage to your lawn equipment.

How long does it take to grind a stump?

Small stumps can be ground away in an hour or less, while large stumps may take several hours.

Digging up a stump may take an hour or several, depending on the size and the equipment used.
