Why get someone in to do stump work?

Firstly, stumps are far more stubborn than people might appreciate.  You need the right machine for the job and sharp teeth for grinding stumps in Oxford.  These machines are expensive and specialist.  If you try to smash a stump out with an axe, unless it’s very small, you may well break your back.

Secondly, if you try and do it with an axe, you may not walk again.

Thirdly, the machinery is bespoke and you need to get used to using it.  It is also very expensive and potentially, equally dangerous.


Why was this tricky tree work and stump grinding job?

This was a little more involved than most jobs for the following reasons:

Firstly, we didn’t really know what we were dealing with, everything was so over grown.

Secondly, it was into March when we did the work and the birds were thinking about nesting.  There is comprehensive law around nesting birds and carrying out tree work or nor carrying it out, more to the point.

Thirdly, the owners were losing their privacy as soon as the hedging was removed and people’s curtains tend to twitch more when something is changed.

Fourthly, the owners needed to find a fencing company that would put the fence up almost immediately after we were done.
