Why you ought to clear away tree stumps with a stump removal service

The following article outlines the many reasons why you should consider our stump grinding services.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same area

Tree roots usually extend out in to the yard practically as far 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 location.

If you intend 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.

Older tree roots take a long time to decompose

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots break down quickly too. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping features.

Stump removal prevents suckers which can come up

Specific trees do not die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the following year. These suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of coming back as one tree| will return as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump defends against the tree from turning into an undesirable addition to your yard. Ground out stumps are less likely to start re-growth of roots. Expanding roots can endanger sidewalks or foundations.

Stump Removal lessens potential hazard for injury

The potential for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the top reason why a large tree stump should be removed instead of being 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 some 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
