Why you ought to take out tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following blog post details the many reasons why you should choose our stump grinding services.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Highland Mills NYTree roots typically stretch out into the yard nearly as much as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left making it impractical 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 brand new one| then the stump has to be ground up in order to create some space.

Aged tree roots take years to decompose

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots break down quickly too. Roots connected to a stump appear to last much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Suckers may come up

Specific trees do not really die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the ensuing year. These kinds of suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump stops the tree from turning into 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 hazard for injury

The potential for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the most important reason why a large tree stump should be removed instead of 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 wasn’t until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
