What are Stump Grinding and Tree Grubbing?
Stump grinding and tree grubbing are often the first big steps when clearing a construction site.
At its most basic, stump grinding is the process of removing the stump by using a fast-moving rotating disk that quickly chips away at the stump. Ideally, all you’re left with is a pile of wood chips.
Although stump grinders can be small, industrial applications often require a larger disk. It is only a useful tool if the stumps are not located within the building area as determined by a survey.
Tree grubbing, on the other hand, is a term to describe getting rid of the trees, plants, and roots at a site. Rather than using other methods of removing trees, tree grubbing excavators remove the entire tree–even the roots.
A tree grubbing excavator is the least invasive method of removing trees. Why does it matter if there are stumps and rotting trees at a site? Because construction can be affected by these decaying substances in the future. Foundations and roads, concrete slabs, and concrete footpaths can become damaged and uneven over time. Tree grubbing takes care of the problem before these costly incidents can occur.

Getting Stumps Removed
If a tree stump is left behind, it opens up the risk for pests and for a regrowth of the tree. Removing stumps isn’t easy, tempting too many business owners to leave it behind. Stan’s mini marsh excavators, however, can fit in the tightest of spaces.
Our mini marsh excavators float on water, too, so swampy sites that seem inaccessible are all within reach. Our trained operators can thoroughly and efficiently handle stump removal. Louisiana utility companies and pipeline companies use Stan’s to cut through canopies. When we grub a tree you won’t even know it was there. If it’s a huge tree, we’ll cut it first and grub the rest.
A marshy, mucky area is no match for the mini marsh excavator and well-seasoned operators. Stan’s Airboat and Marsh Excavator Service understands the marsh, boasting years of fishing, hunting, and exploring the Louisiana bayou. Let their skills translate to your business.
