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

The following article explains the many reasons why you should consider our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same location

Stump grinding Middletown NYTree root systems typically stretch out in to the yard almost as much as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left making it difficult to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the old site. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump has to be ground up so as to create some space.

Older tree roots take a long time to degrade

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

Suckers may spring up

Particular trees do not really die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the following year. These kinds of suckers are a little bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump stops the tree from turning into an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding 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 should 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 was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is simply an accident waiting to happen.
