Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following post outlines the many reasons why you should look at Tommy Trees stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Southfields NYTree root systems most likely 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 making it difficult to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the existing location. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump should be ground up in order to create some space.

Aged tree roots take a long time to decompose

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly as well. Roots attached to a stump appear to survive much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping amenities.

Suckers may break out

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

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

It was not until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
