How does Arbor Tree Care perform stump removal in South Burlington, VT?

With the use of industrial equipment, the old, dying stump is actually ground up into a near splinter-like type of sawdust that safely sits in the ground providing fertilizer. This material can easily be planted over and provides an enormous boost in nutrients for any plants or grass you wish to cover the area. The experienced and highly trained arborists here at Arbor Tree Care utilize a variety of specialty equipment which can rip through even the most stubborn of stumps, making mulch out of the previous resident. It will make a pulp-filled crater in the ground about four to six inches deep, again, the perfect patch for planting over.
