Tree stumps can be a nuisance to your land. Besides the fact that they don’t look visually appealing, they are also hard to get rid of.

You may want to have gloves, a chainsaw, and eye protection during this process.

For stump removal to go smoothly you will have to first expose as much of the roots as you can. Use a shovel and dig out the land around the roots. Once you have exposed the roots you can get started on cutting some of the smaller ones.

There are stump grinding machines that you can purchase or rent to finish the job. These machines break down the stump little by little until there is nothing left. If you are going to use one of these machines, be sure to read the manual so you know how to use it safely.
