Why you should get rid of tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same stump location

Stump grinding Wallkill NYTree root systems typically stretch out in to the yard practically as much as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left which makes it difficult to start a new| replacement tree anywhere inside 10 feet of the existing site. If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a new one| then the stump must definitely be ground up in order to create some space.

Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.
