Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following blog post details the many reasons why you should choose our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the exact same location

Stump grinding Warwick NYTree roots usually extend out into 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 impractical to start a new| replacement tree anywhere inside 10 ft of the old location. If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump must be ground up in order to create some space.

Suckers may spring up
