When trees are felled or fall, their stumps should be removed to prevent suckering and fungal root rots. Although often large and heavy, it is possible to remove stumps fully using the right equipment.
A stump grinder or stump cutter is a tool that removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disc that chips away the wood. A typical stump grinder incorporates a cutter wheel with fixed carbide teeth. The cutter wheel movements are controlled by hydraulic cylinders to push the cutter head laterally through the stump and to raise and lower it.
Completely dead stumps won't form suckers, but they can play host to root diseases so it’s better to remove them and avoid any possible risk.
Stump grinders come in a wide variety of size, depending on the size of the stump.
