Recently, I was grinding tree stumps in Ongar, Essex. A sycamore tree had been removed, leaving a large tree stump and also quite a large hazelnut tree had been left. There was also a row of yew tree stumps to grind out, along with many other smaller tree stumps. I actually ended up grinding the whole area to make sure that there were no tree roots left. You can see another tree stump job that was carried out in the Ongar area, here.
The area was going to be used to extend the patio, as it was a good viewing point looking out across the fields.
There were some additional hazards, like electricity cables, which were dug out and exposed and left on top of the area. We had to remove a couple of paving slabs to make sure the electricity cables were out the way of the stump grinder. Due to the nature of the machine, it’s always good to have obstacles out the way. Things like electricity cables can easily be caught up in the machine, which ends up in a slow process of removing a tangled cable from the machine. Plus a replacement cable is normally required, so it is much better to get obstacles out the way beforehand.
The whole area was going to be dug out with a solid foundation laid, ready for paving.
I cover the majority of the Essex area and also Suffolk; please feel free to contact me anytime for all your stump grinding needs.
