Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following post explains the many reasons why you should choose Tommy Trees stump grinding service.

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

Stump grinding New Windsor NYTree roots generally spread out in to the yard practically as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind making it impossible to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 feet of the existing location. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a new one| then the stump will need to be ground up in order to create some space.

Older tree roots take forever to break down

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots break down quickly also. Roots connected to a stump appear to last much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Suckers may break out

Certain trees do not die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the subsequent year. These suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump defends against the tree from developing into an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The potential for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the leading reason why a substantial tree stump should 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 opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
