When you hire B&B Tree Service to remove a tree from your property or it falls over due to an act of nature, it leaves behind a stump. The best thing to do when you call us for a quote for tree removal is to request that we also do stump grinding so you don’t have to worry about these things.
Stump grinding is the process of using special equipment to chip away the stump above and just below the surface into medium-size chips. The root system is left to decompose over time. By getting rid of the stump, you will be able to use the area where the tree was for a flowerbed, garden, or anything else you’d like to.
We offer both residential and commercial stump grinding services.
Reasons to Remove Tree Stumps from Your Property
At first glance, tree stumps may look harmless. However, it’s important to have them removed as soon as possible because they can be a trip hazard, a home for wood-boring insects, or just an eyesore. If you’re still not sure about our stump grinding services, here are a few reasons you should:
They ruin the aesthetics of your property
Tree stumps are an eyesore. They make your property look like you don’t care about making it look good. If you want to improve the aesthetics of your property, don’t leave behind tree stumps. Let us bring our equipment in and grind up the stump, leaving the root system to naturally decompose. We will fill in the hole with dirt and the mulch created from grinding the stump.
They can be hazardous to children
If you want your property to be kid-friendly, you want to make sure to have all of the stumps removed. After all, stumps are hazardous to children- especially if you have young children that love to play in the yard.
Also, tree stumps may damage your lawn equipment if you hit one while doing your lawn care. It can be a liability if you have a visitor that is injured from tripping over it. Finally, if it’s close to your driveway, someone driving at night or not paying attention may hit it.
They make it harder to garden and mow your property
As mentioned, a stump can damage your lawn mower if you happen to mow over it. In addition, gardening and lawn care is so much harder when you have to navigate around stumps.
They can contribute to new tree growth
Eventually, you’ll begin to notice small trees growing around the stump- which will decrease the curb appeal of your property. In addition to ruining the aesthetic, it will cost you a lot more because it’s harder to remove plants that have established roots.
These new trees are likely to come back again, and you’ll need a to hire a tree service or chemicals to kill them. Plus, they take nutrients from nearby plants, so if your flowers are not blooming, it may be because other growth is taking away the nutrients.
They attract insects
A decaying tree takes a long time to decompose and- in the meantime- a variety of insects will set up residence. Though you may not notice them in your yard at first, they may eventually make their way into your home. One of the most common ones is termites- which can compromise your home’s structure.
Don’t delay hiring us for our stump grinding service. We can get rid of that stump and all of the problems that come with it.
How Does Stump Grinding Work?
We have specialized equipment that will grind your stump into mulch. We go slightly below the surface, creating a pit to ensure that the stump is completely gone. We’ll use the mulch to fill in the hole, creating even ground that you can use to create a garden, plant flowers, or any other use you’d like.
