So the tree removal crew have done their job. They’ve chopped down the tree in the yard which was causing you problems, but you’re left with a sad reminder of what used to be there. Tree removal companies normally don’t have the proper equipment for tree stump removal. You’re going to have to think about the intrusive tree-base which has been left behind. Do you really want it to stay put, causing nuisance and attracting pests? We’ll talk you through the benefits of stump removal and stump grinding with Martin’s Trees.
The Benefits of Stump Grinding
Sure, the tree stumps unsightly, but did you ever consider that it might be dangerous too? There are many benefits to removing the annoying tree stump in the yard.
The first benefit is that you’ll get more space in your yard and improve the aesthetics. While a stump can make the garden look untidy and incomplete, remove it and you can plant grass, plants and even add furniture like picnic benches. A well-kept yard will improve the curb appeal and value of your property.
Have you ever tried mowing the lawn with a cumbersome tree stump in the way? It’s a nightmare. You have to maneuver around it constantly when it’s something you shouldn’t be giving much thought to. It’s also a tripping hazard for any senior citizens or young children on the property. Do yourself a favor and remove it for that extra peace of mind.
Is your tree stump out of sight and not causing any harm? Think again. As the tree stump rots there’s a good chance it will become diseased. If you don’t want to risk the spread of disease to other healthy trees, you’re best to remove it. A rotting tree is also a paradise for insects and pests. Termites, in particular, will find a comfortable home, and multiplying pest numbers can be a disaster for your property.
Why You Need to Leave the Job to Professionals
We’ve made it pretty clear that you should consider grinding and removing that stump – but don’t just let loose on it. It can be a complicated and dangerous process that you’re best to leave to professionals.
Any attempts to remove the stump with your small tools are likely to fail. Often, these trees have been positioned for tens of years, and their roots are widespread. These roots may have spread under sidewalks and driveways – get the removal wrong and you could have a whole new landscaping project on your hands. Furthermore, if you do manage to visibly remove the stump, you may not remove it deep enough – it could sprout and grow back all over again. Save yourself the hassle and let the professionals use the specialist equipment that’s required.
Choose Martin’s Trees for Stump Removal/Grinding
Martin’s specialized stump removal team will remove the stump safely and return the area to its original condition. It’s an intensive process, completed in multiple stages since only two layers (around two inches) can be ground at a time. This is done by the cutting wheel – at the front of the machine – which works its way across the stump surface and back, and repeats. Even with the most experienced operators and the best machinery available, stump grinding is a process which takes time.
Martin’s Tree Service team also make sure that there is little evidence of the stump remaining. The equipment has the capability to grind and remove tree stump 18 inches below the surface of your garden. When you use Martin’s Tree Service, you won’t have to worry about that tree stump ever again.
