Professional Stump Removal in Randburg

That stump in your perfectly landscaped garden is protruding like a sore thumb. You just cannot decide whether removing it is worth the endeavor.

A professional tree stump removal service, like Lumber Jack Tree Felling, can explain the various stump removal options to you. So, perhaps it’s time to consider the impact that tree remnant will have on your life.

5 Reasons why you should remove the stump:

Gardening Menace. Chances are you have already broken a lawnmower blade against it. Also, cutting around it all the time is a mission. Furthermore, it can be an obstacle when planning new beddings or planting new shrubs.

Hazardous. Tree stump removal can actually save you money. If anyone entering your premises trips and falls, you could be held accountable.

New Growth. New shoots can develop from the old stump. Not only does this spoil your landscaping, it will also hike the price when you call in the tree stump removers.

Insect Infestation. A tree stump can take years to decay, leaving it the ideal hide away for beetles, ants and other unwanted pests. Moreover, termites love decaying wood and this is certainly one pest you do not want near your premises.

Unsightly. Lastly, you do not want the sight of an old stump detracting from the rest of your perfect lawn.

Why do you need a stump removal service?

There is no quick and easy way to remove a tree stump yourself. Moreover, your method of removal will depend on the type, age and size of the tree the stump belonged to.

For example:

  • A tree felled in its prime would sport a strong root system, whilst a youngster’s roots would still be closer to the surface.
  • Each tree family possesses its own unique root system. This means that the pine stump removal process will differ from something akin to an oak tree stump removal.

If, after the above category assessment you are still determined to tackle the job yourself, you are left with three stump removal options:


Dig a trench around the stump to expose the roots. Chop and dig away until you manage to loosen the stump enough to rip it out.

Rent a stump grinder

This is an expensive option if it’s only one stump you need to eliminate. Also, this is a dangerous tool for the uninitiated. In a nutshell, this machine whittles away the wood to the depth you require, after which you can cover the remaining hole. It has toothed circular blades that churn out wood chips, so it is not for the faint hearted

Time and Patience

Finally you can allow the stump to decay. This could take an inordinate amount of time, of course. You could attempt to hasten the process with Epsom salts. Drill some holes in the stump, pour in the salt and moisten. Now cover it with a tarpaulin. Eventually, the Epsom salts draws the moisture from the stump, and you can break it off bit by bit. Lots of patience is required.

To save you time and hard labour, Lumber Jack Tree Felling offers an affordable tree stump removal service.
