Why you should clear away tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Montgomery NYTree root systems generally stretch out in to the yard almost as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left making it difficult to start a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 feet of the old site. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump has to be ground up in order to create some space.

Older tree roots take forever to decompose

After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly too. Roots attached to a stump appear to survive much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.

Suckers may come up

Some trees do not really die when 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 rather than coming back as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump prevents the tree from developing 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 potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the biggest reason why a big tree stump should be removed instead of being actually 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 started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
