Why you should clear away tree stumps with a stump removal service
The following blog post details the many reasons why you should choose our stump grinding service.
Stumps make it tough to replant in the same location
Tree root systems commonly spread out in to the yard just about as much as the branches did on the live tree. By leaving the tree stump in place| the more thick roots are also left behind which makes it difficult to plant a new| replacement tree at any place inside 10 ft of the old site.
If you wish to replace that old shade tree with a different one| then the stump must definitely be ground up so as to create some space.
￼Aged tree roots take years to degrade
Once a stump has been ground up| the roots deteriorate quickly also. Roots attached to a stump seem to survive much longer and can block planting shrubs| flowers| and other landscaping amenities.
Stump removal prevents suckers which can emerge
Certain trees do not die when 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 instead of returning as one tree| will return as ten or twenty new trees. Grinding down the stump and the thickest portion of the root stump reduces the chances of 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 threaten sidewalks or foundations.
Stump Removal lessens potential for injury
The possibility for a cave-in or a sinkhole in the yard is the main reason why a substantial 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| which is just an accident waiting to happen.
