Is it time to call a tree service in Channelview to remove that old tree? It can be a painful choice to make, but sometimes the tree gets too close to the house, gets too diseased, gets an incurable infestation of some pest, or grows too tall and gets close to a power line. If any of these things occur, its best to do the right thing and get rid of the tree. Although you might have spent hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is almost dishonorable to the tree to allow it to suffer in bad conditions.

Our tree removal service will plan it out, climb up the tree and tie two long ropes near the top. Anchor them on the opposite side of the one that we want it to fall towards. This will allow us to adjust the direction the tree is being lowered in, just in case it starts leaning towards anything it could destroy.

Once the tree is down, stump removal can be slightly more difficult. We have several choices; use a stump chipper that will completely destroy the visible section of the stump. Or we can dig it out. Digging out the stump is much more thorough, but takes time. You can choose to do this yourself or have the family help. If you have kids this shouldn’t be a problem. Kids often find the thought of digging fun, and are excited to go outside and dig all day long with their friends.

How to Start Your Own Stump Grinding Service Business

If you are looking for an inexpensive and easy way to get rid of old tree stumps, you should consider burning them down. This method is a very popular way to remove tree stumps without using any major equipment or tools. Furthermore, the cost is drastically lower than professional stump removal or stump grinding service since all you need are a few over-the-counter, store-bought products. You can expect to spend anywhere from $20 to $100, depending on the size and quantity of the tree stumps. Additional tools may be required as well, such as a power drill with wood-boring bit, a gardening spade, compost, and more. Continue below to see what you'll need this particular method of stump removal.

How to Burn a Tree Stump

This method is not recommended for anyone that does not have experience working with open flames and fire. It is also never recommended for areas that are dry or combustible. If you do choose to burn your tree stumps, it is vital to use strict internal safety standards. Learn what these are before getting started.

Top off each hole with hot water using a funnel or spouted cup. Continue to pour hot water in the holes until the potassium nitrate is fully dissolved.

Position the dry scrap wood on top of the stump. Try using a "V" or "tee-pee" shape, starting at the ground, and ending as a cone around the entire stump. This sometimes delivers better combustibility.

Use your match to light up the scrap wood. You may need to use a fire starter material along with it, but NEVER use lighter fluid or gasoline.

Stay with the stump as it smolders down to ash. This could take a few hours. You may even have to repeat the burning process more than once.

Once all the stump has turned to ash, use your shovel to break away the leftover pieces of burnt wood and tree roots.

Optional: Fill in the hole with new soil and cover with grass seed.

Important Considerations in the Tree Removal Process

If there is a huge tree in your yard, then you should arrange for its removal before it brings up problems such as interfering with the electric lines. It is not a good idea to cut down the tree on your own. Breaking its branches or cutting it down by yourself would increase the possibility of damaging the electric lines or even your house. This is where tree removal companies come in handy. These companies render professional services with no damages. But before the removal process begins, there are some factors that you need to consider first.

Factors to consider before tree removal:

- Area bylaws: Most areas have some bylaws that regulate removal of a tree even from a private property. Therefore, go through the laws and ensure you are fully compliant with them.

You can also be charged more in case the tree is dead or contains wasps, bees and other harmful insects. Another cost determinant is the cleanup and disposal of debris left behind after removal. The company may charge you more for offering cleanup services.

In conclusion, remember to always hire a reputable tree removal company. Hiring a professional means you will not have to worry about how and where to get permits, underground hazards, disposing wood and so on. Take quotations from at least three companies before settling on the right one.

Remove a Tree and Plant Another

How to properly grind down a tree stump the right way with a stump grinding machine. There are several sizes of stump grinding machines, from the smaller units that you can fit onto your back, and carry up a slope or hill, and grind down medium to small size tree stumps. And then there are medium size stump grinders, that you can generally rent from your local rental yard store. Then their are bigger size machines, that need more room, and usually charge more, but can do them faster. You also have giant size machines that can blow you away, if you can find a clip on YouTube or cable television.

We will assume you are going to do it yourself, and you rent a standard size 13hp stump grinding machine. The front of the machine has a blade almost like a circular saw, but with carbide teeth. These teeth are very hard, and if you want to grind them down yourself, you need a green grinding wheel to do that.

The one of the biggest hazards of stump grinding, is one of the teeth can fly out, and I own 2 stump grinding machines, with a small part time stump grinding business in San Diego. And I have saw what a stump grinding tooth can do when it comes out. The guard over my machine, is metal, and the strait tooth shot right threw the metal, and it was a perfect square, with protruding metal, just like a bullet hole. So you have to make sure the teeth are totally tight. Check for any loose teeth, and best to tighten each one, especially if it is a rental, the guy at the shop might not be the brightest light in the shed, so take it open yourself, the teeth coming out is the most dangerous thing just about.

So thinking you are saving money by renting a machine for $125 and doing it yourself, you might want to think again. We are loaded and ready to go pretty quick most of the time. If a contractor is putting in a new fence, or sidewalk, he usually can't do it with stumps in the way, and needs it done quick, but we charge the price of renting a machine, and since we are cheaper than anyone we believe, and will beat any price, if they just ask us, or offer us a price to do a certain job, I don't usually say no, and veterans get a better deal, 10% off.

You can see what an average stump grinder looks like at Discount Stump Grinding.

The mulch and saw dust you have afterwords, is great for the yard, is biodegradable, and if mixed properly, is great soil amendment, and looks great around bushes and shrubs. A stump will usually make about 3 times the size of mulch or sawdust, so you will get a lot.
