Tree stump removal is one of the most difficult tasks facing the hands-on gardener and is definitely a job reserved for folks who don’t mind hard exercise i.e us here at Martin Doyle tree services- especially when dealing with established stumps. There are several ways to remove a tree stump and some methods are more suitable than others depending on the size, position, species and age of the stump.
We use 3 main methods
For larger stumps in awkward positions such as close to walls, paths and foundations, a stump grinder is the best option. A stump grinder uses a spinning blade fitted with carbide tipped teeth that scrape away at the stump. Bear in mind that a stump grinder can only work to a limited depth, normally up to 10-12 inches. Stump grinders are notorious for sending stones and debris flying all over the place at high speed so we recommend you keep pets indoors.
As expert tree surgeons we use this method when a tree has grown too large for the area it was intended. Crown reduction is a reduction in the total size of the tree from height width and thickness of foliage . This service is used for a variety of reasons from wind reduction or to let more light through. It is a combination of crown thinning,crown lifting and crown re shaping.
Hedge pruning and cutting can be done all year round with some species requiring up to 3 times a year . We have all the right equipment from the right ladders and scaffold to the correct cutting devices. When required we are also able to completely dismantle the hedge but please be aware that some hedges and pivots can have similar laws to them as trees . If a complete removal is required please make sure no laws are broken.
Pollarding is a method of pruning that keeps trees and shrubs smaller than they would naturally grow. It is normally started once a tree or shrub reaches a certain height, and annual pollarding will restrict the plant to that height.
Ok we don’t all have vast tracks of land and forest but coppicing can be useful for those with a large garden and lots of trees .The common belief that chopping down trees is totally bad for the environment is not strictly true.
Not at all,in fact, Prof. Julian Evans comments in his book, Silviculture of broad leaved woodland:
“One point concerning the gradual decline in woodland area over the centuries is the mistaken but widely held belief that disappearance of woodland in more recent times can largely be attributed to the demands for charcoal and fuel wood … It is now increasingly evident that far from exhausting local supplies of wood for these uses, the presence of such industries helped sustain and not deplete woodland..’ page 3/4
It also benefits those of us who use wood for our stoves and fires which are becoming more and more popular.
Reading the following also gives us some encouragement - http://www.forestry.gov.uk/Working woodlands as coppice provides local sustainable timber, local jobs, increased biodiversity as well as work in traditional crafts. Sadly though in recent times the use of plastics and mass production techniques have meant that many coppiced woodlands have become un-viable, there has been no market for their products and hence the cycle has stopped, the wood becomes ‘derelict’ and overgrown, with a permanent high canopy.
