    I just had 6 trees grinded down. Now I have 6 piles of grindings. What is the best use for these grindings. Or what is the best way to get rid of them? I still have large trees in my yard. Are the grindings good for mulching around the trees?

    We leave them there, most use them as mulch in beds. Or we haul them off at a extra charge.

    Rake them back to the main hole, pack them down, couple week pack them again, tarp away excess, soil and seed. This won't work if they are conifers, you will need to take away more of the mulch.
