Stump Removal is a very important part of tree removal and landscaping upkeep.  

Whether you have had a tree removed professionally or have leftover stumps from tree damage,

there are a number of reasons why you should not leave stumps behind....

AESTHETICS...If you want your yard, garden or landscape to look tidy and neat, you probably don’t want an old tree stump poking out of the dirt. If you’re hoping to sell your home then you’ve got a great incentive to remove those old stumps. Stump grinding is an affordable service that can make a big difference to the look of your property.

HAZARDS...You should also note that tree stumps can be quite hazardous, particularly if they are small and hard to see. If you have small children who like to run around outside, stumps have the potential to trip them up, causing serious injury. Many people don’t look down while walking or running on grass.  Stumps can be a serious hazard, especially to someone not familiar with your property. Stump removal will provide a safer property, reducing your liability.

NEW TREE GROWTH...Another thing to consider is the fact that tree stumps have the potential to cause new tree growth. Leaving a tree stump behind after tree removal can mean new sprouts spring up around it. These often grow into lots of tiny trees around the base of the stump. Not only is this unsightly for your property, it can also be quite expensive to remove these shoots because they have a tendency to keep sprouting back. The tiny trees will leach nutrients from other plants around them, so they can also damage other plants.

BUGS...There are insects to think about as well. Leaving a stump behind after tree removal means leaving behind something that’s decaying.  As the tree stump slowly decays it will attract wood borers, termites, beetles, ants, and other unwanted pests. Stump removal will help you avoid a potential pest problem.

EQUIPMENT DAMAGE...Stumps can easily cause serious damage to your lawn mower. Tree stumps tend to be a big inconvenience when mowing a lawn. By removing stumps you eliminate the inconvenience of having to maneuver around them when you mow, weed, or do garden maintenance.
