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

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

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

Stump grinding Monroe NYTree roots typically extend out into the yard almost as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind making it unfeasible to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 feet of the old location.

Suckers may break out

Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump prevents the tree from becoming an unwelcome 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 started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
