Stump Grinding in Reigate, Dorking, Leatherhead & All Surrounding Surrey Locations | Shipton Tree Services

After a tree is felled on your property, you’ll most likely be left with a stump; this is because full-fledged tree removal also involves the removal of root networks lying underground, which can be so widely spread that it’s simply not worth the cost and trouble of digging up the surface above them. Luckily, our seasoned tree surgeons, who cover all areas surrounding Dorking, Leatherhead and Reigate, have a solution – stump grinding.

This service is a simple form of tree surgery carried out with powerful grinding equipment, which allows our team to reduce a stump to ground level. The cost and speed at which stump grinding can be delivered makes it an extremely common alternative to stump and root removal, ideal for most domestic and commercial clients throughout Surrey. Once finished, you’ll be left with a pile of wood chippings which we can transport away, ensuring a perfectly clean and tidy site, or leave with you should you wish to use it as mulch; the green thumbed amongst you often find this preferable!

Advantages of Stump Grinding

Some of the main problems posed by bulky, protruding stumps are those around safety. A stump can be a nasty tripping hazard, and pose the biggest danger to children who might be playing around it. By making the stump flush with the surrounding surface, we help reduce the likelihood of grizzly injuries occurring around Dorking, Leatherhead and Reigate, our principal service areas.

Another common complaint our tree surgeons hear is that a stump is an unsightly blight on the wider environment, impacting the aesthetics of a garden, commercial site or estate. Stump grinding helps tuck away this “sore thumb”, which can be constantly on our minds as we survey an otherwise attractive and uniform environment. To see some of the fantastic before and afters we’ve achieved, why not navigate to our portfolio?

Yet another advantage that stump grinding provides Dorking, Leatherhead and Reigate clients is that it prevents a nasty host for parasites and unwanted critters from festering away, potentially proving a hazard to other nearby trees, hedges and horticultural elements. It will also prevent the stump from re-sprouting, which if the tree has been felled/dismantled by our tree surgeons or a previously attending team, is unlikely to be something you’re keen for.
