Falling of trees occur, due to old age or due to violent storms or similar reasons. In all cases removal tree stump is a problem to be settled. Tree stumps are not removed by tree cutters as they are not used as timber. They only cut the upper parts of the tree and remove the timber. This makes the stumps to be left there, becoming a headache for the property owner. These stumps cannot be removed very easily by ordinary tools. Special equipment like mini excavators, excavators and at times industrial equipment etc are required for tree stump removal.
Removing trees and making an area fit for other use is an easy thing. But this gives the burden of removing the stumps. For this purpose it will be required to arrange an excavator to clear the stumps. After removing the entire tree stumps, the area becomes fit for the construction of houses and various other types of commercial structures. Such properties become very valuable real estate properties.
Using of excavators
If the area you want to clear and make ready for business purposes or for building your house is full of pine trees it will be very easy to remove its stumps. But if the area is full of deciduous trees, it will be a great problem to remove its stumps. Even excavator may find it difficult to remove its trunk with its one pull of the bucket. Even after ageing the deciduous trees will be having stronger roots, which means more work and strain will be needed to remove aged tree stumps also. In addition to excavators industrial strength equipment will have to put to service for removing such tree stumps.
Hiring someone with proven experience in tree trunk removal is the usual practice done by local people when they have to clear tree trunks for some area. This situation is somewhat tricky also. He will have dig around the stump using some tools like mini excavator. If the perimeter of the trunk is full of obstructions larger equipment can cause some problems. So always ask the tree removal contractor to bring mini excavator for removing the stump. If the stump is large with a diameter which you cannot hug, then mini excavator will not be sufficient. You will have to make use of bigger industrial equipment with more strength.
Dig a canal
If a canal can be created around the stump, it will be easy to pull it out. The roots which are exposed have to be used as the place for attaching the grip of the excavator. Similarly when the excavation is completed, the bucket has to be braced to the stump. With this hooking effect, the stump can be rooted out with little effort.
If this method is not successful in removing the stump after tree removal services is done, then ground digging work has to be carried out. If one tries to lift when the stump is tied to bucket, it may not work. After digging the ground the remaining roots can be scraped easily as the stump is already half-loose from the ground.
