Why you should get rid of tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same location

Stump grinding New Windsor NYTree root systems usually stretch out into the yard nearly as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind which makes it impractical to plant a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 feet of the existing location. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a different one| then the stump must definitely be ground up for you to create some space.

Old tree roots take forever to decompose

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

Suckers may break out

Specific trees do not die when they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the following year. These suckers are a little bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will return as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump helps prevent the tree from becoming an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the most significant reason why a large tree stump ought to be removed rather than being left in place. There have been instances where an 80 year walnut was removed leaving behind a stump with a girth of over 100 inches. It was not until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to happen.
