Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following post explains the many reasons why you should choose Tommy Trees stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same stump location

Stump grinding Florida NYTree roots frequently spread out into the yard practically as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind 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 different one| then the stump has to be ground up for you to create some space.

Older tree roots take forever to decompose

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots break down very quickly too. Roots connected to a stump appear to last much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Suckers may spring up

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

Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump reduces the chances of the tree from becoming 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.

The possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the most significant reason why a substantial tree stump should be removed instead of being 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 approximately 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
