Why you should grind tree stumps with a stump removal service

The following post explains the many reasons why you should choose our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same stump location

Tree root systems commonly 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 making it impractical to plant a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 feet of the existing site.

If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a brand-new one| then the stump will need to be ground up so as to create some space.

Aged tree roots take forever to break down

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots break down very quickly also. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping features.

Stump removal prevents suckers which can come up

Some trees do not really die when 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 instead of 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 defends against the tree from becoming 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 hazard for injury

The potential for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the biggest reason why a big tree stump should be removed rather than 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 actually a hole some 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to happen.
