Why you should take out tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following post outlines the many reasons why you should look at our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Monroe NYTree root systems typically spread out in to the yard almost as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left which makes it unfeasible to plant a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 feet of the old location. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump will need to be ground up in order to create some space.

Aged tree roots take a long time to degrade

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

Suckers may emerge

Particular trees do not really die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the following year. These kinds of suckers are a little bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of coming back as one tree| will return as ten or twenty new trees. 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 endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential hazard for injury

The potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the primary reason why a substantial tree stump should be removed rather than being 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 wasn’t until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole some 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
