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

The following blog post explains the many reasons why you should look at our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same area

Stump grinding Cuddebackville NYTree roots usually spread out in to the yard just about as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left which makes it impossible to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the existing location. If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a different one| then the stump needs to be ground up for you to create some space.

Older tree roots take forever to degrade

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly also. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping features.

Suckers may spring up

Particular trees do not die when they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the ensuing year. These kinds of suckers are a bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of coming back as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump defends against 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 top reason why a big 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 was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to happen.
