When Should You Choose Stump Removal Over Stump Grinding?

When should you choose stump removal over stump grinding

More often than not, a tree stump left behind in the yard after a tree removal becomes an afterthought. Well, at least until the stump becomes somewhat of an eyesore!

Typically, you can schedule a stump grinding service and have the stump whittled down to turn it into less of an issue. Sometimes, the stump is too far gone for simple grinding, though. Much like rotting trees have to be dealt with through tree removal, tree stumps that are beginning to rot have to be removed as well.

Today, we're going to discuss some of the issues that require stump removal over stump grinding.

Your Tree Stump Is Attracting Unwelcome Pests

It goes without saying that rotten tree stumps are a haven for unwelcome critters. Many of the creatures that are attracted to rotting tree stumps, such as wood wasps, copperheads, black widows, and rats, can pose a serious threat to you, your family, and your pets. Call us today to have your tree stumps removed before these pests have a chance to invade your property!

Fungi And Weeds Are Beginning To Choke Your Yard

Pests aren't the only things you have to worry about when it comes to letting a tree stump sit.

They also pose a threat to pets who rarely discriminate when it comes to chowing down on interesting things in the yard.

Tree Stumps Are A Tripping Hazard

It's easy enough to find things to trip over in the yard. Old tree stumps are notorious for tripping folks up, especially when walking in the yard at night. The sooner you can get rid of them, the safer you'll be!
