Stump Grinding - Professional Tree Service

To remove unsightly stumps, a tree service specialist may recommend grinding as the most efficient and effective way. This is done by using professional grade machinery which should only be used by tree care experts. The stump is totally removed so there is no hazard because of an exposed stump. Pests will also have no conducive habitat to live. In addition, stump removal has less impact on landscaping than stump removal.

There are a number of reasons why property owners have their stumps ground. Stumps may distract from your supposed to be pristine landscaping. Grinding the stumps will enhance the appearance of your yard. This, in turn, will increase the value of your property. You may also want to plant the area around the left stump which is impossible because it occupies a large space on the surface and underneath the soil. Grinding the stump frees up significant space in your lawn. You can reuse the left open area. There is room for a small pond, lawn furniture, or plant beds. The choice is up to you.

Stumps can cause inconvenience in maintaining your yard. You need to move around it carefully when mowing your garden. If you unintentionally hit the stump, it may damage the lawnmower. Children are at risk of tripping over the stump when running across the lawn. You will be held liable for injuries if kids and seniors in your neighborhood accidentally trip over them.

Like mentioned before, completely grinding the stump ensures there is no healthy environment for the insects to nest. Beetles, bees, ants, and wood-boring insects have no way into your house. New trees will also grow around the area of the stump. They also get nutrients from the soil, air, and sunlight for their own absorption. They are competing with the vegetation you actually intended to plant. This may prevent the growth of the plants around them. Do not leave dead trees around your property. It is a physical, health, and planting hazard.
