Trees are a great asset on any property and do a lot to enhance the value of a property. However, like all living organisms, trees have a life-cycle – growing, aging, withering and, eventually, dying. Sometimes, unforeseen occurrences happen, like storms and high winds, that can bring down major branches and topple trees, even those in their prime.
Down but not necessarily out
While a large branch or fallen tree might be ‘down’ it’s not necessarily ‘out’, as the saying goes. Leaving fallen trees and branches are not only unsightly on your property, but can cause even more problems in the long run. Problems with consequences that can far outweigh the cost of stump grinding.
For example, the tree might not actually be dead and, in due course, you may end up with unwanted and unsightly re-growth. Or it could simply lie there and rot, becoming a home for all sorts of pests and diseases that can spread to your healthy trees and shrubs. Or, once dead and dried, it could pose a serious fire hazard to the rest of your property. None of these scenarios is anything you want lurking in your backyard or anywhere else on your property!
So, if a tree or major branch should fall on your property, you would probably want to clear it away as quickly as possible. Furthermore, when removing a fallen tree, don’t forget about its stump and/or root ball. While stumps and root balls might appear to be relatively innocuous and safe to leave behind, they too can be unsightly and even dangerous in the long run.

Fallen tree clean-up: why you need the help of specialists
While the job of removing a fallen tree isn’t nearly as risky or complicated as removing a healthy, living tree that’s still standing tall, it nevertheless requires the right equipment and expertise to get the job done properly, safety and cost-effectively.
Never underestimate the dangers posed by a fallen tree – trees are big and heavy, and, even when toppled, they can still pose serious threats to life and limb. For example, even doing something as simple as hacking a branch off a fallen tree could upset the relative equilibrium of the fallen trunk, causing it to roll, with dire consequences.

Stump grinding is the perfect way to get rid of a tree that has fallen.
