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

The following article outlines the many reasons why you should choose our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it tough to replant in the same stump location

Tree root systems frequently spread out in to the yard just about as much as the branches did on the living tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left behind making it impractical to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 feet of the old site.

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

Aged tree roots take years to break down

After a stump has been ground up| the roots break down quickly too. Roots attached to a stump appear to survive much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping features.

Stump removal prevents suckers which can break out

Various trees do not really die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the next year. These suckers are a bit like the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and instead of 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 defends against the tree from turning into 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 most important reason why a substantial tree stump should be removed rather than being actually 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 was not until a crack started up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was actually a hole some 6 feet deep| and that is just an accident waiting to happen.
