Top 4 Dangers & Risks of Keeping a Tree Stump in Your Yard – Remove it!

If you’re one of the many people out there who doesn’t believe tree trunk removal is necessary, we’re sure you’ll change your mind after this blog. Tree stumps are not only a huge eyesore, but they take up a lot of space in your yard and pose several risks to you and yours. If you’re thinking about leaving a tree stump behind and skipping on tree removal services, you’re going to want to read this article to learn why that’s a bad idea.

Aesthetically speaking, the sight of a tree stump is very unappealing, but beyond that it also poses many risks and dangers. Read on to find out the risks associated with leaving a tree stump behind.

  1. Tree stumps attract pests.

Once a tree stump rots out, the wood then attracts pests. When this happens, the tree stump gets infected with beetles, ants, and termites that can potentially make their way to your property. While they might not cause troubles for your garden, they will cause problems to your home, especially termites. To help protect your home and property from wood-eating pests, take advantage of tree removal services and have that tree trump removed.

  1. Tree stumps are hazardous.

If you had a tree stump in your yard for a very long time, you might’ve grown accustomed to its presence and learned how to avoid it. However, visitors and neighbors don’t know there’s a tree stump in your yard. Tree stumps, especially those that are cut low to the ground, present a tripping hazard. Say you’re having a summer barbeque… guests who are not familiar with your yard might not see the tree stump and could end up falling and hurting themselves. Tree stumps can pose even greater hazards to young children and seniors, which is why you should consider tree removal services right away, especially if you plan on hosting barbeques and get togethers this summer.

  1. Tree stumps grow quickly.

It’s a common misconception that tree stumps die after they’re cut down. While this does happen from time to time, it’s common for trees to sprout new growth around them. While you might not think those young trees pose any problems, we want you to realize that those trees are sucking away your soil’s resources. An active tree stump is literally absorbing the moisture and nutrients that would have otherwise fed your lawn, garden, plants, and nearby trees, which is why you need to consider removing the tree stump right away to avoid harming the health of your other greenery.

  1. Tree stumps are a pain to move around.

Tree stumps left in your yard become an annoyance, especially when you must mow the lawn. How many times have you tried maneuvering around tree stump only to end up on top of it and destroying your lawnmower or weedwhacker? Now you have a headache and have to shell out extra money to have your equipment prepared.

Yes, you’ll spend extra money on the tree trunk removal, but it’s worth it in the end—that is if you enjoy having a beautiful landscape that poses no risks to your family and property.
