Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following article outlines the many reasons why you should choose Tommy Trees stump grinding services.

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

Stump grinding Monroe NYTree root systems most likely extend out into the yard practically 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 ft of the old site. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a different one| then the stump should be ground up for you to create some space.

Older tree roots take years to decompose

After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate swiftly as well. Roots attached to a stump appear to last much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping amenities.

Suckers may spring up

Certain trees do not die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the subsequent year.

Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump prevents the tree from turning into an unwanted 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 leading reason why a substantial tree stump should be removed instead of being actually left in place. There have been instances where an 80 year 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 some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
