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 service.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same location

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

Older tree roots take forever to break down

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate swiftly as well. Roots attached to a stump appear to last much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping features.

Suckers may spring up

Various trees do not really die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the subsequent year. These suckers are a little bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of coming back as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump helps prevent the tree from developing into an unwelcome addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the most significant reason why a substantial tree stump should be removed instead of being actually 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 wasn’t until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to happen.
