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

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the same area
Tree root systems generally extend out in to 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 impossible to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 feet of the existing location.
