Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump removal service
The following post details the many reasons why you should look at our stump grinding service.
Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same area
Tree roots most likely spread out in to the yard practically as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind making it unfeasible to plant a new| replacement tree any where within 10 ft of the existing site.
If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a new one| then the stump needs to be ground up so as to create some space.
￼Aged tree roots take forever to decompose
After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate swiftly as well. Roots attached to a stump seem to last much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and various other landscaping features.
Stump removal prevents suckers which can break out
Particular trees do not really die when they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the following year. These kinds of suckers are a bit like 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 portion of the root stump defends against the tree from becoming 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 for injury
The possibility for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the greatest reason why a big 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 opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to happen.
