Why you should grind 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 stump location

Stump grinding Middletown NYTree root systems most likely stretch out in to the yard practically as much 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 impractical to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 feet of the old site. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a new one| then the stump should be ground up in order to create some space.

Older tree roots take years to break down

After a stump has been ground up| the roots break down very quickly as well. Roots connected to a stump appear to last much longer and can obstruct planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.

Suckers may emerge

Various trees do not die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the following year. These kinds of suckers are a bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will return as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump helps prevent the tree from turning into an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the most important reason why a substantial 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 opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
