Why you ought to grind tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Port Jervis NYTree root systems generally extend out into the yard practically as much 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 impractical to start a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the old location. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a different one| then the stump has to be ground up for you to create some space.

Old tree roots take forever to degrade

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots break down swiftly also. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping features.

Suckers may break out

Specific trees do not die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump stops the tree from turning into an unwelcome addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential hazard for injury

The possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the most important reason why a big tree stump ought to 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 a hole some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
