Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following article details the many reasons why you should look at our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same location

Stump grinding Florida NYTree root systems typically spread out into the yard just about as far as the branches did on the live 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 at any place within 10 feet of the old site. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a different one| then the stump must be ground up for you to create some space.

Old tree roots take forever to degrade

After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate swiftly also. Roots attached to a stump appear to survive much longer and can obstruct planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Suckers may spring up

Various trees do not really die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the subsequent year. These suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of coming back as one tree| will come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump reduces the chances of the tree from becoming an unwelcome addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the most important reason why a big tree stump should be removed rather than 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 wasn’t until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
