Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following post details the many reasons why you should consider Tommy Trees stump grinding services.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding New Hampton NYTree roots most likely spread out into the yard nearly as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left which makes it impractical to start a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 feet of the old location. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump will need to be ground up for you to create some space.

Aged tree roots take forever to degrade

After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate quickly also. Roots connected to a stump seem to survive much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.

Suckers may break out

Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump defends against the tree from developing into an unwanted 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
