The Benefits of Stump Grinding

THE BENEFITS OF STUMP GRINDING

As you may know, when you have a tree removed, the stump is often left behind. This is because stump removal requires different tools and skills—a different crew has to come out for stump grinding. Make the call to get that stump removed for aesthetic, health and safety reasons.

WHY REMOVE A TREE STUMP?

PROPERTY VALUE

Stump removal is an affordable way to remove an eyesore. Tree stumps are unattractive in your yard and can decrease property value or scare off potential homebuyers. Curb appeal matters.

SPACE

If you have a small yard (or even a large yard), you probably want to take advantage of every inch. You could use that space to plant a new tree, create a garden or add a swing set.

UNWANTED SPROUTS

Tree stumps tend to cause new tree growth. Lots of tiny, unwanted sprouts could grow around the stump, which is not only unattractive, but also unhealthy. All these sprouts will take nutrients from the plants around them, possibly harming the valuable plants and trees in your yard.

INSECTS

A leftover stump is decaying wood, which is very appealing to pests such as woodborers, termites, beetles and ants. Leaving a stump is an invitation for all these pests to enter your yard and eventually invading your healthy plants.

FAMILY SAFETY

Stump grinding makes your yard a safer place to play. If you have kids running around your yard, they are not looking out for tree stumps – especially small ones. Stump removal will remove the potential hazard from your yard and protect your children from injury and your family from a lawsuit if someone else is injured.

LAWNMOWER SAFETY

Lawnmowers are not cheap, and hitting a stump with your lawnmower can completely destroy it. It is cheaper and less frustrating to get a stump removed than to damage and replace your lawn tools.

These are just a few reasons you should get your tree stump removed. If you are ready to make your yard more attractive, healthy and safe by removing a tree stump, give our team a call.
