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

The following post outlines the many reasons why you should consider Tommy Trees stump grinding services.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same stump location

Tree root systems commonly stretch out in to the yard just about as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left which makes it difficult to start a new| replacement tree anywhere inside 10 ft of the old location.

If you choose to replace that old shade tree with a different one| then the stump must definitely be ground up so as to create some space.

Old tree roots take a long time to degrade

Soon after a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate very quickly too. Roots connected to a stump appear to last much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and many other landscaping features.

Stump removal prevents suckers which can emerge

Certain trees do not die after they’ve been chopped down| and will send up suckers the subsequent year. These suckers are a bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of coming back as one tree| will likely come back as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest parts of the root stump prevents 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 main reason why a sizeable 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 started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole approximately 6 feet deep| and that is simply an accident waiting to happen.
