Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

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

Stump grinding Newburgh NYTree root systems usually extend out in to the yard almost as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left behind making it impossible to start a new| replacement tree any where within 10 ft of the old site. If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump needs to be ground up for you to create some space.

Old tree roots take years to decompose

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly also. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping amenities.

Suckers may spring up

Certain trees do not die when they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the next year. These kinds of suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than returning as one tree| will return as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump helps prevent 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 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 large 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 was not until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
