Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump grinding service
The following blog post outlines the many reasons why you should choose our stump grinding service.
Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same location
Tree root systems generally spread out into the yard virtually as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left behind which makes it unfeasible to start a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 feet of the existing location. If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump will need to be ground up for you to create some space.
Older tree roots take years to decompose
After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate swiftly also. Roots attached to a stump appear to survive much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping amenities.
Suckers may come up
Particular trees do not die after 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 instead of coming back as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump reduces the chances of the tree from developing into an unwelcome addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.
Potential for injury
The possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the most important reason why a sizeable tree stump should be removed rather than being actually 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 was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole some 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
