Why you should clear away tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it tough to replant in the exact same location

Stump grinding Newburgh NYTree root systems commonly spread 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 thicker roots are also left which makes it impossible to start a new| replacement tree any where within 10 ft of the existing location. If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump must definitely be ground up in order to create some space.

Aged tree roots take forever to degrade

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

Suckers may break out

Various trees do not die when they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the following year. These kinds of 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 new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump prevents the tree from becoming an unwanted addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

Potential hazard for injury

The possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the main reason why a large tree stump should 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 started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
