Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same location

Stump grinding Walden NYTree root systems typically stretch out in to 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 behind which makes it difficult to start a new| replacement tree anywhere inside 10 ft of the old location. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump will need to be ground up so as to create some space.

Old tree roots take years to decompose

After a stump has been ground up| the roots break down quickly also. Roots attached to a stump seem to last much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.

Suckers may spring up

Some trees do not die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the ensuing year. These kinds of suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump reduces the chances of the tree from developing into an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

Potential hazard for injury

The possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the top reason why a substantial tree stump should be removed instead of being left in place. There have been instances where an 80 year walnut was removed leaving behind a stump with a girth of over 100 inches. It was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
