Why you ought to take out tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Middletown NYTree root systems most likely spread out in to the yard nearly as much as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind making it impossible to start a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 feet of the existing location. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump has to be ground up in order to create some space.

Older tree roots take a long time to break down

After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly too. Roots attached to a stump appear to survive much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping features.

Suckers may spring up

Specific trees do not really die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the next year.

Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump defends against the tree from becoming an unwanted addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

There have been instances where an 80 year 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 a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
