After a tree is removed the remaining stump can be eliminated in a variety of ways. It is often necessary to remove hazardous and or declining trees. Cutting such trees is a difficult task but tree stumps removal is considered more cumbersome. There are many stump removal options available. The most common way to get rid of tree stumps is to have them ground below ground level.
Often professional tree removal companies will do stump grinding. If the stump is not too large it could be removed whole, without grinding, but this is impractical for larger tree stumps. Alternatively it could be chopped up and used as firewood.
Once the stump is removed or ground down to a level well below the surface, the best method of repairing the hole left in the ground is to fill with topsoil and seed with grass that matches the surroundings. Fill this hole with topsoil that is similar to the surrounding soil.
Covering a tree stump with garden soil will eventually promote natural decay and rot. Because the stump is covered in soil, pests or insects cannot gain access to the organic compost and will eventually leave. This approach will work best for smaller stumps, and unfortunately, takes a very long time.
