Hedge Stump Removal

Hedge Stump Removal in Moray and Aberdeenshire

Hedge Stump Removal

When you remove a hedge, it’s important to finish the job, our hedge stump removal service concludes this process.

Often rows of hedge stumps are left over following hedge removal and tree removal in Aberdeenshire and Moray. These can look unsightly and take many years to break down, causing issues with mowing. As well as preventing replanting, fencing and generally being trip hazards.

We have several specialised stump removal machines called “stump grinders”. They are specialised machines for this purpose, removing stumps while causing minimal damage to the surrounding area. Traditional methods involve forcibly ripping stumps out, pulling out the attached root systems at the same time. Often very destructive to the surrounding areas and infrastructure. When the hedge has been growing near to walls or buildings it can cause huge damage which is ultimately quite easily avoided.

To keep our chemical use to a minimum and ensure our work is as minimally invasive as possible we have invested in highly specialised stump removal machinery. This is operated by our expert tree surgeons in Moray and Aberdeenshire, ensuring maximum safety at all times. Our machine has a wheel with metal teeth which churns up the stump and surrounding soil, leaving a mix of wood and soil mulch where there used to be stumps.

No need to dig, burn or saw stumps out, we can have the area stump free for replanting in no time at all.

It’s Simply the Best Way to Remove Hedge Stumps!

If you are not convinced that our hedge stump removal service is the right choice for you, we invite you to consider all of your options:

  • Leaving It to Decay Naturally – The easiest and cheapest solution would seem to be to leave hedge stumps and roots to decay naturally over time. However, owing to their tough nature, this is a process that can take many years to complete. In the meantime, you have to contend with an unsightly and potentially hazardous tangle of stumps and roots in your garden. If you are managing a large area of commercial land and do not need to utilise the space currently occupied by hedge stumps and roots, it might make sense to leave them to decay naturally. However, if you don’t have almost limitless space and you need to get rid of them for aesthetic or practical reasons, you should pursue a faster alternative.
  • Pulling Out the Stump With a Tractor – One of the most popular ways to remove hedge and tree stumps in the past was to attach one end of a large chain to the stumps and the other end to a powerful tractor, which was then used to literally pull the stumps out of the ground. While this can be an effective removal method, it lacks subtlety. As the stumps are pulled from the ground, all of the attached roots are ripped out at the same time. This action – ripping out the roots by force – can cause significant damage to landscaped areas, especially if there are any walls or fences in the vicinity.
  • Using Chemicals to ‘Dissolve’ the Stump – There are a number of proprietary tree and hedge stump removal solutions available, which have been formulated to accelerate the decomposition process of tree and hedge stumps, as well as dead roots. Whilst some of the earliest solutions may have been avoided due to their impact on the environment, there are now several options that are acceptable to those of us who are concerned about following ecological practices. The main problem with all of them is the length of time they take to work. If you’re in a hurry to get rid of hedge stumps and roots, you probably won’t want to wait 6 weeks or more for them to decompose.
  • Using Our Hedge Stump Removal Service – You might have expected us to promote our own hedge root removal and stump removal service, but we have good reason for doing so. If you are looking for a fast, cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution to your hedge stump and root problems, you will not find a better one than our service. We guarantee to take care of all stumps and roots in the most efficient manner possible.

With so many advantages to offer, we think you’d be mad to consider any other alternative. Call now and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about our hedge stump removal service.

Carefully assessed the work to be done and promptly quoted. Agreed dates for the work to be done and came when they said. Carried out the work exactly as agreed. Team was organised and hard working. Tidied up well once the work was completed. I was particularly impressed with the stump removal and the care taken to make sure I was happy with the finished shape of the trimmed trees. Cost seemed high until I saw how many workers were in the team, what work was actually involved, how much wood had to be disposed of and the amount of equipment involved. I was completely satisfied with the work done and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
