Stumps make it tough to replant in the same area

Stump grinding Unionville NYTree roots frequently extend out in to the yard virtually as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind making it unfeasible to start a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 ft of the old location.
