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

The following blog post explains the many reasons why you should consider our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same area

Stump grinding Salisbury Mills NYTree roots commonly extend out into the yard almost 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 impractical 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 brand new one| then the stump should be ground up for you to create some space.

Old tree roots take years to degrade

After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate quickly also. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Suckers may come up

Certain trees do not really die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a little bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump reduces the chances of the tree from becoming an unwanted addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the most important reason why a substantial tree stump should be removed rather than being 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 opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to happen.
