Stump removal doesn't always happen in the same day as tree removal. Specialized grinding equipment is involved and it's more cost effective to wait and remove many stumps at once.
We wait for an accumulation of stumps to be removed and work with a contracted private company to remove them. This means a stump removal could be delayed by a few months after a tree is removed.
After the stump is ground, the hole is filled with a mix of soil and ground stump chips. This prepares the area for replanting.
