The Benefits of Stump Extraction

Most people think of a stump grinder when they need to remove a stump.  However, did you know that stump grinding only removes the top few inches of a stump from the soil?  In some applications stump grinding is the best choice, but here are some conditions when you should consider a stump extraction to get the stump and roots removed completely.
