When you decide to remove a tree from your yard, whether that is an emergency removal or a choice you make, you'll be left with a stump. While it isn't necessary to have the removal service perform a tree grinder service as well, it's usually a good idea.
Let's take a look at why a professional tree grinder will help make your yard look the best it can.
What Is Tree Grinding?In order to remove the stump left behind, a special piece of equipment, called a tree grinder, must be used.
Professionals will have the expertise and the equipment necessary to remove tree stumps left behind after a tree removal.
AestheticsThe first reason a professional tree grinder will help your yard is that it will improve your yard's overall look. Tree stumps aren't very pretty, and they can stick out like a sore thumb when in a beautiful, lush yard.
Getting rid of old (often rotting) stumps will do wonders for your yard's aesthetic.
SpaceNot only will getting rid of tree stumps make your yard look better, but it will also free up space in your yard. You can then fill those spaces with things that will actually make your yard look good, like other plants, statues, fountains, or even new trees.
Freeing up space in your yard by hiring a professional tree grinder to remove stumps would be especially important for those who have smaller yards. If you already are pressed for space, it doesn't make sense to let an ugly stump take up a significant amount of that space.
SafetyBesides the aesthetic reasons to hire a professional tree grinder service to remove stumps, there is also the issue that tree stumps can be hazardous. It can sometimes be hard to see stumps, especially if they are rather small or they are obstructed by plants or grass.
Imagine what could happen if your kids were running around in the yard, didn't see a stump, and hurt themselves by tripping over it. And it's not just kids who could be hurt by tree stumps: anyone who doesn't see it or doesn't remember it's there could be injured.
Getting a tree grinder to remove any tree stumps in your yard can save you and your family from serious injury.
Stumps Can Attract Unwanted PestsWhen you remove a tree and leave the stump behind, it essentially kills the tree stump. This leads to the wood of the tree stump to begin to rot and decay.
Decaying wood can attract pests like a myriad of different insects, including termites, ants, and various kinds of beetles. Leaving a rotting stump will be like leaving a bug magnet in your yard.
Rotting wood can also be an excellent place for fungus and molds to grow, which can be a health hazard for your family.
A tree stump can become the home for all of these unwanted pests, which can then attract other unwanted guests. Skunks, snakes, and mice are known to visit rotten wood in order to find easy prey that lives there.
Keeping old, rotten stumps can lead to your yard becoming a haven for these unwanted pests. Do you really want skunks, termites, and snakes to take up a residence so close to your home?
A professional tree grinder can prevent this from happening by removing the stumps.
Leaving a Stump Can Lead to Tree GrowthThe whole point of removing a tree is to do just that -- remove it. Leaving behind the stump can actually lead to new tree sprouts growing, which kind of defeats the purpose of tree removal.
Not only that, but the numerous new tree sprouts that can grow up from a tree stump left behind don't look very good. They can make your yard look messy and unkempt.
Removing the tree stump would prevent this from happening.
CostAnother downside to these new tree shoots is that their removal can get costly. Sometimes simply removing the new sprouts doesn't solve the problem, and they will continue to grow back. This leads to many rounds of removal and potentially needing to use harsh chemicals to kill them off.
All of this can get quite expensive, especially if you have to go through the removal process multiple times.
Yard HealthThe numerous new sprout that can grow out of an old tree stump will require a lot of water and nutrients as they grow.
This ends up leeching the soil of nutrients that other plants in your garden need to support these unwanted tree sprouts. And if you need to use harsh chemicals to get rid of the sprouts, this can also harm other plants in your yard.
Because of this, leaving a tree stump behind can actually be detrimental to your yard's health.
A way to avoid all of these negative effects from new tree sprouts is to simply remove any tree stumps in your yard with a tree grinder.
