Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump removal service
The following blog post details the many reasons why you should choose our stump grinding service.
Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same area
Tree roots typically stretch out in to the yard virtually as much 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 unfeasible to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 ft of the existing location.
If you intend to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump must be ground up so as to create some space.
￼Old tree roots take forever to decompose
After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate quickly too. Roots connected to a stump seem to last much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping features.
Stump removal prevents suckers which can break out
Certain trees do not die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the ensuing year. These suckers are a little bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump prevents the tree from becoming an undesirable 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 cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the primary 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 was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
