Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump removal service

The following blog post outlines the many reasons why you should consider our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same location

Tree roots commonly extend out in to the yard almost as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left behind making it impossible to start a new| replacement tree at any place 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 for you to create some space.

Older tree roots take forever to decompose

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots break down quickly too. Roots attached to a stump appear to last much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping amenities.

Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump defends against 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 for injury

The possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the leading reason why a substantial tree stump ought to 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 was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is just an accident waiting to occur anytime.
