Why you should take out tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following article details the many reasons why you should choose Tommy Trees stump grinding services.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same area

Stump grinding Rock Tavern NYTree roots frequently spread out into the yard virtually 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 unfeasible to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the old location. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a new one| then the stump needs to be ground up so as to create some space.

Aged tree roots take a long time to break down

After a stump has been ground up| the roots break down swiftly also. Roots attached to a stump appear to survive much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping features.
