Stump Grinding and Surveying

A busy day here at the KCC on Tuesday, December 11th.  ATC is working with Al Thorp of Accord Engineering and Surveying, LLC of Great Barrington, MA to conduct a topographical survey of the parcels including the house and barns as well as the field areas on either side.  This type of survey generates a lot of useful and highly detailed info about the topography, location of structures and roads, types of vegetation, underground utilities, etc that will be used in our planning phases for increasing parking capacity on site as well as barn renovations.  Al was kind enough to let me tote the prism pole around while he took measurements from various points.  Here are a few photos of Al in action.




While Al and I were conducting the survey, Mike King of Berkshire Stump Grinding was working on turning two giant stumps (one 48" diameter, one 52" diameter), left behind from a pair of lightning-struck willows that were removed back in August, into piles of mulch.  We try to utilize everything we can here, so this mulch will likely go into rehabbing and beautifying the flower beds around the house.

  3. If I get a left over stump ground down; will the tree grow back? I am kind of hoping it won't. I would rather grass it over and make it part of my lawn.

  4. I have seen my dad do stump grinding before and it is really something to watch. It is really great and was really cool too. I am hoping to find out more of this and just really am excited to learn more.

  5. Do you guys do a lot of stump grinding, or more surveying? I can see why they'd both be needed, but it's still an interesting combination of businesses. We are getting a tree removed next month, and the stump will have to be ground out. Thiago | http://www.treesafe.com.au/stump-grinding.php

  6. I think it's awesome that you guys are going to reuse the mulch from that tree stump for other things around the house. I'm going to be looking for a place nearby that does stump grinding in the next couple of days. I just had a tree cut down this last week, and I really would rather not have a large stump left in the ground. Maybe I could use the mulch from it for my garden, too!

  7. How does stump surveying work? Is it just like normal land surveying? I would love to know how it works, I'm extremely curious. Let me know!

  8. I just bought this new house a couple months ago and everything is perfect, except for this huge stump in my front yard. I really don't want to have to deal with it and hope it is something that can be removed. If it does end up causing further problems that might affect my house I guess I'll deal with it, I'd just like it looked at first. http://www.knockouttrees.com.au/services-view/stumpgrinding/

  9. My son and I decided to cut down a big tree that was in our back yard by ourselves. To make a long story short, we safely fell the tree, but we have been having trouble getting the stump out. Would it be best to try to dig it out, or just grind it down? We're planning on putting in a pool, so we're going to need the stump out of there. http://www.northernsuburbstrees.com.au/Services.html

  10. My good friend's grandpa needs some work done around his property, and some of that work is going to be stump removal. I don't know how to do that, so I thought that I would learn some of the basics and become familiar with the process of it all. This gave me some great insights, and I feel better about helping out with stuff like that.
