Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following post outlines the many reasons why you should consider Tommy Trees stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Arden NYTree root systems frequently stretch out into the yard almost as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left which makes it difficult to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere inside 10 feet of the existing location. If you really want to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump must definitely be ground up for you to create some space.

Older tree roots take years to degrade

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly also. Roots attached to a stump seem to last much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Suckers may come up

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

Potential for injury

The potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the most significant reason why a large tree stump should be removed instead of being left in place. There have been instances where an 80 year walnut was removed leaving behind a stump with a girth of over 100 inches. It was not until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
