Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following article explains the many reasons why you should look at our stump grinding services.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Cornwall NYTree root systems most likely spread out into the yard just about as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left behind which makes it impossible to start a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 feet of the existing location. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump must definitely be ground up in order to create some space.

Older tree roots take a long time to degrade

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots break down very quickly as well. Roots connected to a stump seem to last much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping features.

Suckers may break out

Various trees do not die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the next year. These kinds of suckers are a bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump prevents the tree from developing into an unwelcome 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 leading reason why a sizeable tree stump should be removed as opposed to 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 happen.
