Why you should clear away tree stumps with a stump removal service
The following blog post explains the many reasons why you should look at Tommy Trees stump grinding service.
Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same stump location
Tree roots usually extend out into the yard just about as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left which makes it difficult to plant a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 ft of the existing site.
If you want to replace that old shade tree with a fresh one| then the stump will need to be ground up for you to create some space.
￼Older tree roots take a long time to degrade
Once a stump has been ground up| the roots break down quickly as well. Roots attached to a stump seem to last much longer and can hinder planting shrubs| flowers| and various landscaping amenities.
Stump removal prevents suckers which can come up
Specific trees do not die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will return as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump stops the tree from becoming an unwanted 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 most important reason why a big tree stump should be removed instead of 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| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
