Why you ought to get rid of tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following post explains the many reasons why you should consider Tommy Trees stump grinding services.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same location

Stump grinding Florida NYTree root systems typically spread out in to the yard nearly as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left which makes it difficult to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 feet of the existing location. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a new one| then the stump must be ground up so as to create some space.

Old tree roots take forever to decompose

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

Suckers may break out

Various trees do not die when they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a little bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will come back as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump stops the tree from developing into 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 hazard for injury

The possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the leading reason why a big tree stump ought to 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 opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
