Stumps make it tough to replant in the exact same location

By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left behind which makes it unfeasible to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere inside 10 ft of the old site. If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a new one| then the stump needs to be ground up for you to create some space.

Old tree roots take years to degrade
