Why you should take out tree stumps with a stump grinding service
The following blog post outlines the many reasons why you should look at Tommy Trees stump grinding services.
Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same area
Tree roots typically 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 thicker roots are also left behind which makes it difficult to start a new| replacement tree anywhere inside 10 ft of the old location. If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump needs to be ground up so as to create some space.
Old tree roots take forever to degrade
After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate swiftly too. Roots connected to a stump seem to survive much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and various other landscaping amenities.
Suckers may break out
Particular trees do not die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the following 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 prevents the tree from becoming an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.
Potential hazard for injury
The possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the leading reason why a large tree stump should be removed instead of being 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 was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
