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

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

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

Stump grinding Newburgh NYTree root systems commonly extend out into the yard just about 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 which makes it difficult to plant a new| replacement tree any where within 10 ft of the old site. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump has to be ground up for you to create some space.

Aged tree roots take years to break down

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate quickly too. Roots connected to a stump seem to last much longer and can obstruct planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.

Suckers may come up

Some trees do not die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the following year. These kinds of suckers are a little bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump prevents the tree from developing into an unwanted addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the top reason why a big tree stump should be removed rather than 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 was not until a crack started 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 occur anytime.
