Why you should remove tree stumps with a stump removal service

The following post outlines the many reasons why you should consider our stump grinding service.

Stumps make it difficult to replant in the exact same area

Tree roots most likely spread out in to the yard virtually as much as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the thicker roots are also left which makes it impractical to start a new| replacement tree any where within 10 ft of the old site.

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

Older tree roots take a long time to degrade

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

Stump removal prevents suckers which can break out

Certain trees do not die after they’ve been felled| and will send up suckers the following year. These kinds of suckers are a bit similar to the multi headed Greek “Hydra” and rather than coming back as one tree| will likely return as ten or twenty trees . Grinding down the stump and the thickest section of the root stump stops the tree from becoming an unwelcome 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 for injury

The potential for a collapse or a sinkhole in the yard is the main reason why a sizeable tree stump should be removed as opposed to being 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 was not until a crack opened up in the stump that discovered beneath the stump was a hole approximately 6 feet deep| which is simply an accident waiting to occur anytime.
