Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump grinding service

The following blog post outlines the many reasons why you should choose Tommy Trees stump grinding service.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the exact same location

Stump grinding Westtown NYTree roots generally extend out in to the yard almost as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind making it impossible to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 ft of the old location. If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump has to be ground up for you to create some space.

Aged tree roots take a long time to degrade

After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly too. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping amenities.

Suckers may come up

Various trees do not die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a 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 section of the root stump prevents the tree from becoming an unwelcome addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Spreading roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the top reason why a big tree stump ought to be removed instead of being actually left in place. There have been instances where an 80 yr walnut was removed leaving behind a stump with a girth of over 100 inches. It wasn’t until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole some 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
