Will My Tree Grow Back Even After Stump Grinding?

Stump grinding can be done effortlessly with the right machine like this SC70TX Stump Cutter.

A common question our tree service professionals get when a customer hires us for stump grinding is if their tree has the potential to grow back. After all, tree roots can run deep — especially with big, thick, and healthy trees. So, while you may have eliminated the tree and even ground down the stump, it’s only natural to think that you may see growth you might not have expected over time.

The answer to this question depends on who you hired to do the stump grinding.

If you chose Clean Edge Tree Service & Removal in Denton, TX, the answer is a resounding “no” — your tree should not grow back even after stump grinding because we ensure that the root system is no longer intact by the time we finish. If you hired someone else, or your neighbor did it for free, we can’t guarantee it was done correctly or they had access to the right tools to avoid regrowth.

Professional Stump Grinding Destroys the Root System, Too!

Generally speaking, a tree has the potential to grow back (years and years later, of course) if its roots are still intact. Yes … even after the tree itself has been removed. And yes … even after the stump has been removed, and all that’s left is a giant hole in the ground. Professional stump grinding should avoid this possibility because the goal is to grind below the soil line and decimate anything on or below the surface. This includes the main root system, which will cause the tree to die once it has been broken up.

How is this achieved? To fully break up the root system of a tree, our trained professionals use a stump grinder called a SC70 Vermeer stump grinder. This powerful machine comes with a vertical blade that passes back and forth over the top surface of the stump. As the blade spins, it chips away at each layer until it can grind it into nothingness. More importantly, it grinds even the most stubborn stumps 24 inches into the ground. By grinding the stump below grade, you instantly reclaim your yard and destroy the root system.

Henceforth, your tree is officially dead and gone.

Additional benefits to stump grinding include but aren’t limited to the following:

  • No need to remove it yourself manually
  • Improved lawn and property aesthetics 
  • Reduced hazards 
  • Protects nearby trees
  • Regain space and potentially replant in the same spot
  • Reduce the impact of insects and rodents 
  • Eliminate future tree growth or stump spreading
  • Improved property values

While some people may not mind having a leftover stump or two in their yard, others see it as a constant reminder that a tree used to be in that spot. Therefore, the benefits of stump grinding far outweigh the costs.
