Why you ought to clear away tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following post explains the many reasons why you should look at our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Slate Hill NYTree root systems usually spread out in to the yard practically as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left behind making it impractical to start a new| replacement tree any where within 10 feet of the existing site. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump ought to be ground up in order to create some space.

Old tree roots take forever to degrade

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots break down very quickly as well. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping features.

Suckers may spring up

Certain trees do not die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the ensuing year.

Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump helps prevent the tree from becoming an unwelcome addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

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 just an accident waiting to happen.
