Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following article explains the many reasons why you should look at Tommy Trees stump grinding service.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Central Valley NYTree roots commonly extend 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 start a new| replacement tree at any place within 10 ft of the old site. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a different one| then the stump must definitely be ground up so as to create some space.

Aged tree roots take years to decompose
