Don’t Leave the Stump Behind!
The process of removing the stump is referred to as stump grinding. The process involves the use of a heavy-duty machine that has a large, serrated blade which spins to literally grind the stump out of the ground, acting as a wood chipper. Choosing a top-rated, highly recommended company like yours truly will ensure the tree removal and stump grinding processes go as smoothly as possible and leave your property in the best condition for you and your family. Some reasons to not leave the stump behind include:
• Safety & Liability - You don’t want the tree stump left behind because they can be hazardous to anyone walking or playing in the yard, like children, for example. When children are running around the yard playing, they’re not paying attention to the ground! It’s so easy to accidentally trip over the stump or the roots and this can lead to injury. You could have someone visiting your house or a mailman, package delivery service employee, or neighbor (just to name a few) trip and hurt themselves. As the property owner, you can be held responsible for their injuries.
• Protect Other Trees and Structures - A common reason for removing a tree is that it is too close to the home or other trees. You may think once the tree is removed and just the stump is left behind that the problem is solved. On the contrary, leaving the stump in the ground still actually causes issues. The tree's roots are connected to the stump, and they will still be too close to your home. The roots can also still absorb water in the ground that a nearby tree needs to remain healthy. It can also occupy space and hinder the growth of the roots of other trees. A company who leaves the stump and just removes the tree may not solve any of the issues that caused you to want the tree removed in the first place.
• Keep Pests & Diseases Away - When left behind tree stumps decay and can attract all manner of pests and diseases. These infestations and diseases can spread to other nearby trees. Beetles and termites particularly like to live in tree stumps.
• Increase/Maintain Aesthetics - Tree stumps are seen by most as unsightly and can make your home appear unkempt and unmaintained, especially to prospective home buyers and neighbors. The aesthetic look of the home can make a big difference if it’s on the real estate market. Having the stump ground when the tree is removed is best and opens up the door to possibility. Take a moment to think about what you could place in your yard after hiring Tree Service Express for the removal and stump grinding. You could plant flowers, bushes, add a fountain/statue or plant another tree eventually.
