Importance of Excavating Tree Stumps

Friday, August 9, 2019

Eliminating the stumps in your yard is one of the most important aspects of tree maintenance and should be done carefully. There are many advantages to grinding the stump.

  • Leaving the stump in the ground will generate new growth and promote smaller trees around it to grow. These trees if left in the ground strip other surrounding plants of their nutrients, causing the plants to wither or die.
  • The stumps are hazardous and can cause accidents when children or adults trip over them. Stumps can also damage to your lawnmower.
  • Insects are attracted to decaying tree stumps, and these pests can be an environmental concern for other trees and your home. In addition, the untreated stump may harbor diseases or fungi, and this puts other plants at risk.
  • A tree is a perfect enhancement for your home, but a stump is really just an eyesore.  Tree stumps with weeds or molds growing on or near them is not beautifying your property.
