Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following article outlines the many reasons why you should consider our stump grinding services.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same location

Stump grinding Walden NYTree roots generally spread out in to the yard nearly as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left making it impossible to start a new| replacement tree at any place within 10 ft of the existing location. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a different one| then the stump needs to be ground up for you to create some space.

Old tree roots take forever to degrade

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly as well. Roots attached to a stump appear to last much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and various other landscaping features.

Suckers may spring up

Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump defends against the tree from developing into an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can threaten sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the top reason why a sizeable tree stump ought to be removed rather than being actually 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 opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to happen.
