The Importance Of Stump Removal | Edmonton

Looks aside, the simple act of leaving a stump in your yard can cause a bevy of problems. For example, if you’ve had to remove the tree due to storm damage and wish to plant a new one, the stump will prevent that from being possible—at least if you want it in a nearby location.

But if you don’t need to plant a new tree in the same spot, and you don’t actually mind the look of the stump in your yard, should you still remove it? In short, yes, if you’d like to prevent pests and diseases from invading your yard and corrupting other plants. Grinding down a stump to well below ground level is a surefire way to avoid all potential issues that could be caused by it.

To recap, refer to the list below for all benefits of stump removal in Edmonton, Alberta.

  • Prevent bugs and critters from calling it home
  • Ensures no diseases spread while it rots
  • Prevents accidents & damage to your mower
  • Enables you to plant trees nearby
  • Increases curb appeal

Edmonton Stump Grinding vs. Stump Removal

At Trusty Tree Services, we offer stump grinding to Edmonton homeowners. This process involves grinding a stump down 8 to 12 feet below the surface and then filling the hole with mulch or replanting a new tree. It’s a more eco-friendly process that leaves a part of the stump in the ground so that it will decompose. Worried about pests? Because we grind it down so far and fill the hole, you won’t have to worry about them. Stump removal practices also sometimes use chemicals to quickly degrade the wood. Grinding doesn’t.

Typically, grinding is also the more affordable tree service. Removal can be time-consuming and difficult, but with our highly trained, expert arborists who know how to safely operate the machine, the process is quick and easy. Unsightly stumps that are already rotting and infested with pests should be ground as well. Digging up a rotten or bug-infested stump is not ideal.

About Our Edmonton Stump Removal Service

Homeowners in Edmonton take pride in their properties. Not many want an ugly old stump in their yard where a big beautiful tree once stood. Seeking stump removal for a wide range of reasons? If you need the service, we offer efficient stump grinding to afford property owners the advantage of a quick and painless solution.

Stump Grinding

Let the professionals at Trusty Tree remove that pesky stump for you. Our stump grinders are able to tackle the biggest of stumps while still fitting through standard backyard gates with no issues. We work quickly and leave no mess behind.

Stump Grinding For Replant

Our stump grinders are able to grind to depths of 8" to 30". This allows homeowners to replant trees in the exact same location as previous trees.

What we also do:

  • We typically grind stumps to a depth of 8-12” and then clean up and backfill the hole with mulch. Hauling away the mulch or adding topsoil and grass seed to fill the hole can all be done at an additional cost
  • If you want to replant a tree in the same location as an old one, we can stump grind deep and wide enough to plant a large tree in the same location. Typically, 12"-24"
  • We also can grind surface roots at an additional cost


  • Stump grinding is scheduled after the tree work is performed due to our tree crews and stump crews being separate divisions.
  • The operator will be completing the agreed-upon work described in the quote. Any changes requested by the client to quantities, specifications, or other aspects of the services not described in the quote will incur additional charges (i.e., requesting a depth change, requesting surface roots to be grounded, etc.). Any changes will require a signature prior to work commencing or continuing.
  • It is the homeowner’s responsibility to move existing rocks and mulch back at least 3ft from the stump(s) in all directions to prevent damage from flying rocks/mulch. Trusty Tree Services is not responsible for costs incurred from damages caused by a missed rock(s)/mulch or for damage to underground/hidden structures such as irrigation lines.
  • It is the homeowner’s responsibility to call for line locates prior to grinding operations.
  • A 3-foot-wide gate opening and a 3-foot-wide path to the stump are required. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to remove any gates or fencing prior to the service.

Frequently Asked Questions About Edmonton Stump Removal

What is Stump Removal?

It is the action of removing a stump from your yard in its entirety. Due to the different sizes, different measures will need to be taken to ensure the removal of the entire root from the ground. Larger types require special stump removal equipment, such as a chainsaw and wedge, while certain ones will call for excavators.

What is Stump Grinding?

Stump grinding involves the use of a stump grinder that gnaws the structure down 8 to 12 feet below the surface. It’s an easier process than stump removal. However, it may not get rid of the tree’s roots. Our stump grinding service in Edmonton also involves filling the hole with mulch or replanting a new tree in its place.

Can I Remove a Tree Stump Myself?

You can remove it yourself, but it might take quite a bit of effort, depending on its size. You’ll need a selection of tools to ensure all the roots have been dug up. From a chainsaw and hatchet to clippers and a shovel, you’ll do quite a bit of prying and digging to properly remove the entire thing from the ground.

What Happens When You Leave a Stump in the Ground?

You successfully cut down a problematic tree, but the stump is still in the ground. If you don’t remove it, it will decompose in the ground on its own. While it does that, it will attract bugs and diseases to your property that can spread to other trees and plants. For the sake of saving your lawn, choose our expert Edmonton stump removal services to ensure that doesn’t happen.

Is it Better to Grind or Remove a Stump?

Removing a stump requires a lot of labour and time. You may spend a fair amount of time digging out a stump and its root system from the ground, whereas choosing stump grinding is much more efficient. Stump grinding must be completed by professional arborists who are trained in using the grinding machine properly. Any type of grinder is a safety hazard, so choosing a highly trained crew that is insured on the job is always a good idea.

How Much Does it Cost to Grind a Tree Stump in Edmonton?

Tree stumps range in size. The one you’d like removed may be small, or it may be gigantic. Our tree stump grinding rates vary depending on the size of the job. The best way you get an accurate quote for your removal is to set up a no-obligation appointment with one of our specialists. We’ll visit your property and get a feel for the task before providing you with a quote. If you’d like to go ahead with our services, we can set up a convenient time and date that works with your schedule.
