Reasons To Remove Stumps
Once the tree is gone, many people assume the job is done. But the stump will be there for years to come. Even after the tree is gone, the roots live on and will continue to feed the stump. The stump can send forth new growth that can be unsightly and difficult to deal with once it is established. More often than not, that new growth can result in deeper roots, which can damage plumbing and gas lines. In many cases, that’s the reason a tree was removed to begin with.
If you manage to actually kill the stump, it will take a very long time for the stump to rot away. During this time, the rotting stump will become a habitat of termites and wood ants. If insects invade a stump near your home, your wood-framed house could be next on the menu.
Opting to remove the stump will add aesthetic value back to your landscape and can resolve the eyesore. Plus, you can plant another tree in the same place, which is especially good if you didn’t want to remove the tree in the first place.
Stump Removal Process
When you call our experts at Advantage Tree Service, we come out to remove a stump using our stump grinder. A stump grinder is a special machine with a fast-spinning wheel that shaves the remainder of the stump to just below ground level. Grinding the stump destroys it so that it won’t be able to regrow. After the stump is ground down, we will remove the remaining wood chips and you can decide what to do with the surrounding landscape.
Unlike excavation, which can cause additional damage and take a lot longer, a stum grinder essentially breaks down the tree completely. Removing the unsightly stump and also breaking down the root growth which can become a consistent problem down the line.
