Why you should take out tree stumps with a stump grinding service

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

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same area

Stump grinding Warwick NYTree roots most likely 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 thicker roots are also left making it unfeasible to start a new| replacement tree anywhere inside 10 feet of the existing location. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump must definitely be ground up for you to create some space.

Old tree roots take forever to break down

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots break down swiftly as well. Roots attached to a stump appear to survive much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Suckers may break out

Specific trees do not really die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the next year.

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

It was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
