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

The following blog post explains the many reasons why you should look at our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same location

Stump grinding Westbrookville NYTree root systems frequently stretch out into the yard virtually as much 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 impractical to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 ft of the existing site. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump will need to be ground up in order to create some space.

Aged tree roots take years to degrade

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots break down very quickly also. Roots attached to a stump appear to last much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping features.

Suckers may spring up

Some trees do not die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the subsequent year. These suckers are a little bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump helps prevent 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 cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the primary reason why a large tree stump should be removed as opposed to 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 actually a hole some 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
