Why you ought to grind 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 difficult to replant in the same area

Stump grinding Mountainville NYTree roots commonly extend out in to the yard just about 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 impractical to plant a new| replacement tree any where within 10 feet of the old site. If you want 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.

Older tree roots take forever to degrade

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly as well. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and various other landscaping amenities.

Suckers may emerge

Certain trees do not die when they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a little bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of coming back as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump stops the tree from turning 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 possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the main reason why a sizeable tree stump ought to be removed rather than 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 wasn’t until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
