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

The following post explains the many reasons why you should choose our stump grinding services.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the exact same area

Stump grinding Central Valley NYTree roots frequently extend out in to the yard nearly as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left which makes it impractical to plant a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 feet of the old site. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump should be ground up in order to create some space.

Old tree roots take a long time to decompose

After a stump has been ground up| the roots break down very quickly too. Roots attached to a stump seem to last much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.

Suckers may break out

Some trees do not die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump stops the tree from becoming an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The potential for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the greatest reason why a substantial tree stump ought to be removed as opposed to being actually 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 started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| and that is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
