Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same location

Stump grinding Marlboro NYTree roots generally extend out in to the yard just about as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left making it impossible to start a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 ft of the existing location. If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump should be ground up so as to create some space.

Old tree roots take years to decompose

After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly as well. Roots attached to a stump seem to last much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.

Suckers may break out

Specific trees do not die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the following year. These suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of coming back as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump prevents the tree from becoming 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 potential for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the top reason why a large tree stump ought to be removed as opposed to being 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 started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to happen.
