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

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

Stumps make it tough to replant in the exact same area

Stump grinding Westtown NYTree root systems commonly spread out in to the yard virtually as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left which makes it unfeasible to start a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 feet of the existing site. If you want to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump will need to be ground up for you to create some space.

Older tree roots take a long time to decompose

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly too. Roots attached to a stump seem to last much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Suckers may come up

Some trees do not die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a little bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will come back as ten or twenty new trees. 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. Spreading roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Potential for injury

The potential for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the main reason why a large tree stump should be removed instead of 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 wasn’t until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
