  1. Dig the root of the tree out by hand. Utilizing a mattock, we can dig deeply around the root of the tree by hand until we locate the taproot. The taproot is the largest, most central, and most dominant root. Typically a taproot is somewhat straight and very thick, is tapering in shape, and grows directly downward. In plants with taproot systems, the taproot is the central root from which other roots sprout laterally. We possess all of the necessary tools, which will allow us to cut through the tap root, however thick and strong it may be. Once we have detached the taproot, we will lift the stump from the landscape and then immerse the hole with soil.
  2. Another option is to utilize a chemical compound, which will accelerate the decomposition process of your tree stump. Affordable Landscape and Tree service can select from several available stump removal chemicals that are best suited for your property, which will assist in the decaying of a tree stump. We will begin by drilling a series of holes in the stump. We will then continue to fill the holes with a suitable stump removal chemical and then add water to dissolve it. Finally, we cover the stump with a tarp or heavy layer of wet mulch to keep the moisture in. Stump removal by chemicals is a very inexpensive way to remove a stump from your property, however it can take a while before you see any results.
