Tree Stump Removal

So the city showed up to remove the stump from the tree they removed this summer.

They pulled up this amazing chomping machine with a whirring blade to chew it's way thru the roots and stump. I thought dirt and wood chips would fly everywhere, but they set up a backstop and besides it was a surprisingly dainty eater.

The operator was very proud of his baby and posed it for me.

They only removed a few large chunks. All the rest got munched back in.

All gone. They'll be back later this month to plant another tree -- this time a Modesto Ash. Stay tuned.

Looks good! I can't tell all that soil just got dug up.
