Why you should clear away tree stumps with a stump removal service

The following blog post explains the many reasons why you should choose Tommy Trees stump grinding services.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the exact same area

Tree root systems most likely spread out in to the yard virtually as far as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind which makes it impossible to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 feet of the existing site.

If you really want to replace that old shade tree with a brand new one| then the stump needs to be ground up so as to create some space.

Old tree roots take forever to decompose

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots break down very quickly too. Roots connected to a stump seem to survive much longer and can obstruct planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Stump removal prevents suckers which can break out

Some trees do not really die when they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the following year. These suckers are a bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump defends against the tree from becoming an unwelcome 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 hazard for injury

The potential for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the biggest reason why a large 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 wasn’t until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
