Why Should You Remove a Tree Stump?
They Create Hazards
The foremost reason to consider tree stump removal is that they are potential hazards. Stumps can cause your children or pets to trip over. They can attract pests and pathogens, which may ruin your entire yard. They may also cause damage to lawn mowers and other similar equipment. You will regret not calling professionals for stump removal when you find yourself purchasing a new mower.
They are Ugly
Tree stumps are beautiful, said no one ever! Your open space is quite frankly ruined with the eyesore sitting in the middle of it. A lonely old tree stump is not romantic. It can take away the charm of any lawn. Your neighbors may have a problem with the stump as well if you live in a neighborhood with well-manicured lawns.
Stumps take up Valuable Space
There is just so much space in your yard. Wouldn’t you rather have a nice perennial or another tree growing instead of that stump? Tree stumps also attract fungus and weed growth, which can add to your lawn care chores.
Stump Removal Methods
In our experience, some stumps are far easier to remove than others. It is usually the stubborn stumps that warrant a call to the professionals. There are different techniques employed for removing stumps of different trees. For instance, stumps of deciduous trees pose greater difficulty than those of pine trees.
Stump grinding and chemical stump removal are two most common methods to remove a stump in the DFW area. However, we only recommend the grinding method, since adding harmful chemicals to your yard may damage the soil integrity. In addition, you may not be able to have new growth in that area for quite a few years.
Our team will come prepared when you call us for stump grinding. We use industry standard stump grinding equipment to ensure it is ground down to at least 3-6 inches below the ground level. If possible, we will remove the root system. However, if the tree was mature with complex root system, we recommend leaving it in. It is possible for underground pipelines to get damaged when removing roots.
We strongly encourage that you call professional tree stump services when you want a stump removed. This is a challenging and hazardous job.
