Why you should get rid of tree stumps with a stump removal service
The following post explains the many reasons why you should consider our stump grinding service.
Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same stump location
Tree roots typically extend out into the yard nearly as much as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left making it impractical to plant a new| replacement tree anywhere within 10 feet of the existing site.
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.
￼Aged tree roots take a long time to degrade
After a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate swiftly too. 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
Particular 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 rather than coming back as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump helps prevent the tree from developing 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 for injury
The potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the biggest reason why a big tree stump should be removed rather than 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 some 6 feet deep| and that is simply an accident waiting to happen.
