Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following blog post details the many reasons why you should choose Tommy Trees stump grinding service.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same location

Stump grinding Newburgh NYTree root systems most likely stretch out into the yard nearly as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left behind which makes it unfeasible to start a new| replacement tree anywhere inside 10 feet of the existing location. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump will need to be ground up in order to create some space.

Old tree roots take forever to degrade

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate quickly too. Roots attached to a stump appear to last much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.

Suckers may emerge

Some trees do not really die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the ensuing year. These kinds of 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 portion of the root stump reduces the chances of the tree from developing into an unwelcome addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

Potential hazard for injury

The potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the greatest reason why a big 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 wasn’t until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
