Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump removal service

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

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same area

Tree roots frequently stretch 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 impractical to start a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the old site.

If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump will need to be ground up so as to create some space.

Old tree roots take years to degrade

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots break down swiftly also. Roots connected to a stump seem to survive much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and various other landscaping features.

Stump removal prevents suckers which can break out

Various trees do not die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the following year. These suckers are a little bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of returning as one tree| will return as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump prevents the tree from turning into 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.

Stump Removal lessens potential for injury

The possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the most significant reason why a substantial tree stump should be removed rather than 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 a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
