Stump Grinding vs. Stump Removal

While it might not seem like a huge problem, tree stumps can pose a threat to the safety of your family and yard. Tree stumps present a serious hazard to pets and children and can cause injury. They can also make it difficult for your lawn to get the care it needs. They are unattractive and can be dangerous to your lawn. Daytona Tree Men are available to assist you whether you've just had a Tree removed and need the stump removed as quickly as possible, or if it's been there for a while.

We offer 24-hour emergency services for residential or commercial properties throughout Daytona. Our tree experts will explain the two main methods of removing stumps: stump-pulling or stump grinding. To learn more about these methods, read on and contact one of our arborists today. We can help to keep your yard beautiful and manageable.

Method 1: Stump Grind

First, homeowners should be aware that they shouldn't try to grind or remove the stump themselves. Both methods of stump removal are complicated and require the expertise of professionals. Stump Grinding involves using a powerful machine, to grind the stump to the height you desire. It will blend in seamlessly with your landscape. The visible remains of your tree are removed by this process, but the roots of the tree remain behind. This can lead to sprouts, fungi, and even stump growth. The process of root decay can take between five and ten years.


  • Efficient and quick
  • Stumper removal is less intrusive
  • The mulch made from wood chips is also eco-friendly.
  • A clean slate for you
  • More affordable than stump extraction


  • Tree roots will remain
  • The process can be very messy if it is not performed by trained professionals like Daytona Tree Men.

Method 2: Stump removal

Sometimes known as stump-pulling, stump extraction involves removing the whole tree from its roots. Because stump removal can be intrusive and requires the use of heavy force, it is important to hire an arborist. While stump removal may remove the stump entirely, it can also create an ugly, dangerous hole in your yard which can be even more dangerous. Daytona Tree Men can help you fill the hole if you decide to have the stump removed.


  • Eliminate the stump and roots.

  • Usually more expensive than stump grind
  • More intrusive and disturbing than stump grinding
  • It leaves a large hole on your property
  • The stump must be disposed, of and not repurposed. This makes it less environmentally friendly.
