Stump removal is a great way to add a little usable space to your yard. Today, we want to share with you a few ways you can save money on your stump removal:
The end result of a stump grinding job is a pile of shredded wood. If you need us to, Snohomish Tree might haul the waste for you.
There's basically two ways to remove stumps from your yard: grind them out with a stump grinding machine, or dig them out with an excavator.
The stump grinder is a mobile machine that spins a large, heavy duty circular saw wheel. The teeth on the blade break the stump into chunks.
We covered what to expect in tight quarters in this where we briefly mentioned taking down a tree down in sections. But if your situation demands this, you’ll need to know a bit more about this specific type of tree removal.
We wish more homeowners would use Chip Drop. Why? Because we often dispose of brush (in the form of chips) and logs for our customers.
Felling a tree starts with a face cut. The “face” is the side of the tree that faces in the direction you want the tree to fall in. The face cut removes a big wedge shaped chunk from the tree. It requires two cuts: the bottom side is flat/level, and the top side is a diagonal cut slanting downward.
Milled planks can be useful for applications like timber framing, or for anything else where you might use boards of unconventional sizes. There’s also aesthetic appeal in the rustic appearance of milled boards; you can leave the bark on the edges, or display the roughly milled surface.
A common reason to get rid of trees is that leaving them where they are is a danger and a liability.
Commercial mills are usually specialized; they each create only a few specific types of lumber. This is because the tooling and processes are completely different for different types of wood and their respective products.
