However, stump grinding is one of the most effective methods. Stump grinders can be rented for the project. Before you can get started, you will also need a long-sleeved shirt, pants, shoes, and safety gear such as glasses and a hat.

First, you will want to remove obstacles, this includes trimming the stump down a bit. Also remove any rocks or other debris around you. Next, start the grinder and gently lower it onto the stump.
