Stumps make it tough to replant in the same area

Stump grinding Thompson Ridge NYTree root systems typically spread out in to the yard practically as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left which makes it impractical to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 feet of the existing site.
