Stump Removal – Why Grinding Is the Best Solution?

A fairly common feature you will find in yards is a forgotten tree stump that appears to be seemingly innocuous. Perhaps you moved onto your property and found this stump already there, or maybe you felled a tree and decided to leave the stump intact. No matter the reason for its presence, homeowners should note that having this stump in place could be more harmful than they give it credit. Nevertheless, stump removal should be left to the professionals to prevent the risk of any additional harm to yourself. If you are contemplating stump removal, here are a few reasons why you should contemplate professional grinding.

Stump grinding allows for simple waste elimination

Several different processes can be used to eliminate an unwanted stump. Your arborists could choose to excavate it, but this typically results in extensive yard degradation. On the other hand, you could have the stump poisoned, but this means waiting for it to decay and this route can be long and drawn out. Stump grinding offers a quick and easy solution for getting rid of the remaining tree and have the flexibility of disposing of the resultant waste efficiently.

Firstly, the wood chips created by the grinding process are easily collectable, and the professionals can eliminate them out of your property for you. Alternatively, you could choose to utilise the chips as mulch on your property, which would enhance plant growth.

Stump grinding prevents the risk of potential hazards

At the start, you may believe that the stump on your property does not pose much danger. But this is not accurate. There are numerous hazards that unremoved stumps can create on your property. Firstly, as the stump is steadily covered in overgrowth, it becomes harder to spot and increases the risk of people tripping over it.

Secondly, if the stump is alive, mould and other forms of fungi can start to breed on it for nutrition. As the fungal growth goes on unencumbered, there is the risk of it spreading to other healthy plants on your property.

Thirdly, forgotten tree stumps can quickly become a haven for critters. From roaches to mice and even termites, these pests can quickly overrun your property, and it will only be a matter of time before they make their way to your primary structure. Rather than attempt to hack away at this remaining trunk of the tree, you should enlist professional grinding services to ensure the stump is removed in its entirety.
