Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Bellvale NYTree root systems usually extend out in to the yard just about as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind which makes it impractical to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 ft of the existing location. If you really want to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump needs to be ground up in order to create some space.

Aged tree roots take forever to degrade

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots break down swiftly as well. Roots connected to a stump appear to last much longer and can obstruct planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping features.

Suckers may emerge

Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump reduces the chances of the tree from developing into an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

It was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole some 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
