A lot of people think that the job is done once the tree has been felled, but that isn’t necessarily true.
You will often be left with a big ugly tree stump that can act as both an eyesore and a safety hazard. We’re going to go through a few reasons why it is a good idea to have professional arborists fire up the stump grinder after removing your tree:
Health and Safety: Having a big, immovable stump in the middle of the garden can pose some pretty serious health and safety risks. If left for a while, grass and weeds can grow around it, obscuring it from view. Someone who is distracted could walk or run right into it and do a number on their foot, ankle or knee. Eliminate the risk by having it removed.
Pests/Infestations: Dead and rotting wood attracts pests and insects like beetles, termites and ants. A tree stump is the perfect home for these critters to grow in numbers until eventually, they will need to move somewhere bigger - most probably your house.
Fungi/Disease: A dead or dying tree stump provides a great place for fungi to grow and disease to develop and spread through its root system. Fungi and disease can wreak havoc on your garden if not taken care of properly and its best to remove any chance of it happening.
Re-growth: New shoots can sprout from the base, costing time and money to remove as they leech nutrients and moisture from nearby plant life. Roots below the surface can also continue to grow and cause destruction to the surrounding area.
Damage to Equipment: Have you ever mowed the lawn and run over a tree root? It sounds awful and can cause some serious damage to the blade. This can cost a lot of money to repair or replace. Likewise with tools like weed-whackers etc.
