Why you ought to remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

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

Stump grinding New Hampton NYTree root systems typically stretch out into the yard just about as much as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left which makes it impractical to plant a new| replacement tree at any place within 10 ft of the old location. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump should be ground up in order to create some space.

Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can endanger 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 simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
