We all the love the trees in our garden. Unfortunately, every now and then one of them falls over or needs to be felled, leaving you with an unsightly stump on your lawn. Some people like to try and incorporate the stump into their garden landscaping in some way, perhaps as the base of a table or birdbath, but more often than not it is necessary to remove the stump entirely. The best ways to do this is to use a stump grinder, a power tool that grinds tree stumps into wood chips.
Gardeners love trees! They look beautiful and provide wonderful shade to sit and relax under during the long, hot summer months. Most homeowners don’t remove trees unnecessarily, but some trees are either in the wrong place or are reaching the end of their days, and you need to decide what to do with them. But before you just start hacking away at that problem tree in your yard, you need to find out if you are actually allowed to remove it. In many municipalities there are strict bylaws governing tree removal, and even if a tree is on your property that does not automatically give you the right to do with it as you please. Whenever you remove trees, it is important to always adhere to municipal bylaws or you could be liable for a fine or even prosecution.
We all love the trees in our garden. They shade our houses in summer and provide homes for a myriad of small animals and birds. But trees can also pose a risk to your property. Most homeowners worry about trees falling on their houses during violent storms, or dead branches snapping off and being blown around in strong winds. But what about the threats you don’t see? Are you aware of the dangers that are lurking underground?
