A stump grinder is a special piece of equipment that allows people to cut up tree stumps for easy removal. Most stump grinders feature a single large rotating blade that you place into the stump to break it into smaller pieces via a grinding process. Alternatives to stump grinders include specialty tree poison that causes the tree to wither and decrease in size so that you can dig it out of the ground.
