Stump Grinding

Stump Grinding Independence, LA

Stump grinding services involve the removal of tree stumps from the ground using a machine called a stump grinder. When a tree is cut down, the stump is left behind and can be unsightly and take up valuable space in your yard. Stump grinding is a popular method of removing tree stumps as it is quick, efficient, and environmentally friendly.

We use a stump grinder at Southern Trax Excavation, a powerful machine that grinds the stump and its roots into small wood chips. The machine has a rotating cutting disk that grinds away the stump and a collection system to contain the resulting wood chips.

Why Consider Stump Grinding Services?


Personal Injury

Stump grinders are powerful machines that can cause serious injury if used improperly. The cutting wheel can spin at high speeds and throw debris in all directions.

Property Damage

Stump grinding can also cause damage to surrounding property if not done carefully. The grinding wheel can chip or crack nearby hardscaping, like sidewalks or patios, or damage underground utility lines.

Environmental Impact

Stump grinding can create a lot of sawdust and wood chips, which can be difficult to clean up and may harm nearby plants or wildlife. It’s important to contain the sawdust and wood chips and dispose of them properly during the grinding process.

Improper Equipment

Using the wrong equipment or an improperly maintained machine can increase the risk of injury or damage. Always use a stump grinder appropriate for the size of the stump, and ensure that it is in good working condition before starting the process.
