Bayview Tree Service offers residential and commercial stump grinding services. Stump grinding is an optional service offered after the removal of a tree. Most people don't want to look at or have to mow around an unsightly stump in their yard, so they will choose to have it ground. A stump grinder or stump cutter is a piece of equipment that has a rotating wheel with "teeth" that essentially eat into the stump, grinding it up into mulch. What is left will be a decent sized pile of mulch and dirt mixed, depending on the size of the stump. We then rake out the mulch/dirt mix into the surrounding area and fill the hole where the stump was. We can also haul away this material and level the area for an additional cost. We own a commercial grade stump grinder and we grind 4"-6" below the ground surface. We always call Miss Utility to mark the area prior to any stump grinding to ensure we do not hit any underground lines or utilities.
