Why you ought to grind tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following article details the many reasons why you should consider our stump grinding services.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same stump location

Stump grinding Monroe NYTree roots commonly extend out in to the yard practically as far as the branches did on the living 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 any where within 10 feet of the existing location. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump needs to be ground up so as to create some space.

Older tree roots take forever to decompose

Suckers may emerge

Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump stops the tree from turning into an unwanted addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

It wasn’t until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to happen.
