Why you ought to grind tree stumps with a stump removal service

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

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same location

Tree roots most likely spread out into the yard nearly as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left making it impossible to start a new| replacement tree any where within 10 ft of the old site.

If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump must definitely be ground up for you to create some space.

Older tree roots take a long time to degrade

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate quickly as well. Roots attached to a stump seem to last much longer and can obstruct planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping features.

Stump removal prevents suckers which can break out

Some trees do not die when they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the subsequent year. These suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts 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 threaten sidewalks or foundations.

Stump Removal lessens potential hazard for injury

The possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the main reason why a substantial 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 approximately 6 feet deep| and that is simply an accident waiting to happen.
