When many property owners think about maintaining the trees on their property they may only think about trimming branches and cutting down dead trees. However, there is another piece of the puzzle many property owners overlook. That is, what to do with the stump that is left behind when the tree is removed. If you have a stump left behind on your property, grinding it down is the best. Not the least of which is it will improve the appearance of your property.
What Is Stump Grinding?
Stump grinding is the most effective method for dealing with a remaining or decaying stump. During the stump grinding process, our tree removal experts will use grinders to reduce your stump into mulch. This gets rid of leftover wood and the old tree’s surface roots. We have a big beast of a machine that makes quick work of tree stumps.
What are the Advantages of Stump Grinding?
Stump grinding is advantageous over other removal methods. It removes surface roots which will prevent waterspouts or other unintended growth. Digging out a stump can leave an unwanted crater in your yard. Then, you have to deal with landscaping over the hole. This requires more work and leaves you with less time to enjoy your yard.
Stumps Can Attract Unwanted Visitors
When you leave a stump behind, it becomes decaying wood. There are few things insects relish more than decaying wood. Rotting wood can attract termites, wasps, and beetles. These ‘backyard visitors’ are not only nuisances; they can also be dangerous. The insects can spread and begin infesting your home. The insects can cause damage to your home’s exterior and structural components.
Stump Grinding Is the Safe Choice
Exposed stumps can cause trouble for property owners and visitors alike. Stumps can be hazardous for anyone walking or running on your property. If you’re not careful, and you come across a stump without realizing it, you can easily trip and cause a serious injury. Stumps hidden in wooded or grassy areas can be especially tricky because they are naturally camouflaged. The potential for danger is increased if you have youngsters on the property. They can get wrapped up in what they’re doing, become overzealous, and forget to watch out for the stumps.
