Why you should clear away tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following blog post explains the many reasons why you should look at our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the exact same location

Stump grinding Arden NYTree roots commonly spread out in to the yard virtually as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind which makes it unfeasible to plant a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 ft of the existing site. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump has to be ground up so as to create some space.

Older tree roots take years to decompose

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots break down quickly as well. Roots attached to a stump seem to last much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping amenities.

Suckers may break out

Various trees do not really die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a little bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump stops the tree from becoming an unwelcome addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the main reason why a substantial tree stump should be removed as opposed to being actually left in place. There have been instances where an 80 yr walnut was removed leaving behind a stump with a girth of over 100 inches. It wasn’t until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
