Removing a Tree?

Posted by acharles MA Zone 6 (My Page) on

I have this Silver Maple in front of my house that is becoming hazardous to the house. The roots are pushing up my walkway and driveway. There are cracks in the basement foundation too. I plan on getting someone to remove it, but I wasn't too sure on what to do after it is removed.

The tree is probably 4 - 5 ft across and probably 80 to 100 ft tall. I attached a picture of the base of the tree. I'm going to have them grind the stump and I want to fill the hole and plant grass over it. What will I need to do to accomplish this?

Call several licensed, bonded, and insured arborists for estimates and let the outfit you choose take care of it for you.
