Stump Grinding is an efficient way to remove stumps and surface roots from the landscape. The stump grinding machine weighing about 3,200 pounds and about 36 inches wide is used to grind the stumps left over after the cutting of unwanted trees from landscapes.
The following are the disadvantages of leaving a stump in the ground after the tree is cut:
Obstacle: The stump becomes an obstacle in your lawn or landscape area. It may even last for decades and give out suckers and shoots which would look unpleasant in your beautiful lawn. The shoot or the left over roots may even damage your lawn mower when you accidently roll over them.
Tripping Hazard: After cutting a tree, even if the stump is low to the ground level, it may become a tripping hazard on your property. This may cause painful injuries to elders and children and lead to potential liability claims.
Attract pests: The stump goes through a very slow long decaying process. It becomes a hub for pests like termites and carpenter ants. These critters may even spread to other trees or building structures that are located near the stump.
Spread of Disease: If you had removed your tree due to some disease, the stump may be retaining the disease causing factors. This disease may spread through its roots to other trees and plants in your yard and ruin the health and beauty of the whole landscape.
