Why you should take out tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same area

Stump grinding Marlboro NYTree root systems usually extend out in to the yard nearly as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind which makes it impossible to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the existing site.

Aged tree roots take forever to break down
