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

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Goshen NYTree roots generally stretch out in to the yard almost as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left making it difficult to start a new| replacement tree at any place within 10 feet of the old location.

It was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to happen.
