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

The following article explains the many reasons why you should consider our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Bullville NYTree root systems most likely spread out into the yard almost as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left making it unfeasible to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the old location. If you intend 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 forever to break down

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots break down very quickly as well. Roots connected to a stump seem to survive much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.

Suckers may spring up

Some trees do not die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the ensuing year.

Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump prevents the tree from turning into an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential hazard for injury

The possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the primary reason why a large tree stump should be removed rather than 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 opened 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 occur anytime.
