Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

Stump grinding Thompson Ridge NYTree roots most likely stretch out in to the yard just about 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 which makes it impractical to start a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the old site.
