Why you ought to get rid of tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following post outlines the many reasons why you should look at our stump grinding services.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Middletown NYTree roots commonly stretch out into the yard almost as far as the branches did on the live 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 feet of the old location. If you really want to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump must definitely be ground up so as to create some space.

Older tree roots take forever to break down

It was not until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
