Why you should get rid of tree stumps with a stump removal service

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

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same area

Tree root systems commonly spread out into the yard almost as far as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind making it impossible to plant a new| replacement tree any where inside 10 feet of the existing site.

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

Old tree roots take years to break down

Once a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate swiftly also. Roots attached to a stump appear to survive much longer and can get in the way of planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Stump removal prevents suckers which can spring up

Some trees do not die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the subsequent year. These suckers are a little bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump stops the tree from turning into an unwanted 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 possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the most significant 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 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.
