Why you should clear away tree stumps with a stump removal service
The following article explains the many reasons why you should choose Tommy Trees stump grinding services.
Stumps make it tough to replant in the same location
Tree root systems usually extend out in to the yard practically as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left making it difficult to plant a new| replacement tree any where within 10 ft of the old location.
If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump has to be ground up in order to create some space.
￼Old tree roots take a long time to degrade
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 hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping amenities.
Stump removal prevents suckers which can spring up
Various trees do not die when they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the ensuing year. These kinds of suckers are a little bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of 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 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 possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the most important reason why a large tree stump should be removed as opposed to being 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 a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to happen.
