Removing a tree stump – 5 benefits of stump grinding

The warmer days of summer and the longer light of the season’s balmy evenings is enough to make anyone with a garden want to get out into their yard and enjoy the fresh air. Summer is also a good time to get stuck into our gardens to tidy them up and get them looking good again. However, if you’ve had to remove any trees or large bushes from your property, the question often arises as to whether or not to think about the tree stump removal too.

When a tree or large bush is taken out, it’s usually cut down to just above the ground, which leaves behind the tree stump. However, there are a number of very good reasons to also deal with removing a tree stump.

5 reasons why removing a tree stump is important

Tree stumps left behind can be a hazard and lead to many other problems. So there are a number of benefits of removing a tree stump. Here are 5 things to consider:

1. If a tree stump left behind gets hidden by grass or other growth, it could pose a trip hazard, cause injury and even damage mowers if you hit them while mowing your lawn.

2. A tree stump that is left behind is actually a piece of decaying organic matter, which will attract all sorts of pests into your garden as well as be a potential source of spreading disease to other plants in your garden.

3. Unless the tree and its root system was completely dead, it’s very likely that the tree stump will sprout new growth from its base, and before you know it, you’ll have some more work to do.

4. Any stump that is left behind will always be an eyesore on a property. It’s much better to tackle the tree stump removal job and neaten up your garden in the process. This is especially important if you’re thinking about selling your home, as tree stump removal is not something that potential buyers want to have to deal with.

5. The presence of a tree stump also creates an unusable space in your garden – valuable space that could be used for other plantings, or to create a more appealing landscape or a larger space for children to play.
