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 tough to replant in the exact same area

Stump grinding Marlboro NYTree roots most likely spread out in to the yard just about as much 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 unfeasible to plant a new| replacement tree at any place within 10 feet of the existing site. If you really want to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump will need to be ground up so as to create some space.

Older tree roots take a long time to break down

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

Suckers may emerge

Some trees do not die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the following year. These suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than returning as one tree| will return 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 turning into an unwelcome addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding 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 significant reason why a big tree stump ought to 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 wasn’t 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.
