So you’ve finally got your garden in good shape: the decking has been installed, the flowers are beginning to bloom and those deck chairs couldn’t be more inviting. But while you’re trying to relax, does the sight of that ugly tree stump still irritate you? Would stump removal get a load off your mind and completely finish off the job? Well, you might not have needed to put it off so long – stump grinding and removal can be much more affordable than most people think. More importantly, that tree stump could be causing a lot more damage than you’re able to see. If you don’t get the experts to deal with it, you could soon regret it.
Why Should You Get That Stump Removed?
Does the tree stump on your lawn take away from your gardens natural beauty? Well, you’re not alone: that heavy, awkward tree stump is a huge source of frustration for many gardeners and homeowners. Even if it doesn’t frustrate you visually, it’s still likely to be causing harm.
First of all, by removing the stump you’ll regain much of the garden space you’ve had to surrender in the past. You'll be able to utilize that space properly and actually benefit from your precious land. Decorations, new plants, and even a plot of vegetables suddenly become an option. Also, that stump (some tree stumps can be as large as 1.5 meters wide) gets in the way of mowing the lawn. Save yourself the hassle and remove it.
It’s a tripping hazard for senior citizens and children too. Finally, even if you can’t see it above ground, there’s a good chance that the tree’s roots are beginning to rot – rotten roots become diseased and there are plenty of garden pests that will quickly begin to appear.
Is It Value for Money?
The grinding machine used in tree stump removal certainly doesn’t look cheap. Trained and skilled workers are the ones that use it, and you would be forgiven for assuming that it’s an expensive job. In fact, you might be surprised to find that tree stump grinding and removal can be surprisingly affordable.
Stump grinding depends on a few key factors: the skill of the worker; the quality of the machinery being used, and the size of the stump. You can expect an average stump to be fully removed in as little as a couple of hours. This is because Martin’s Trees use the best quality machinery available and our experienced, highly skilled workers are experts in their field.
The cost of renting your own grinder is naturally lower than sourcing a stump removal expert, but are you fully trained and competent to use the machinery?
Why Stump Removal Can Improve Your Property
Termites feed on rotten wood and are a serious pest problem: they cause billions of dollars of damage to homes throughout North America every year. Rotten wood from a tree stump can lead to disease in the roots and that disease can spread to other trees in your garden. By removing an old tree stump from your property, you’re significantly lowering the chance of harmful pest infestation and keeping the area healthy. You’ll also be improving the value of your property.
