What is Stump Removal?
When you’ve recently had a tree cut down, which you probably have if you’re doing major landscaping, a stump is left. This is the part of the tree where the roots are still embedded in the earth. Removing them is a daunting task that requires the grinding of wood, special heavy-duty equipment, and some serious safety precautions. It is highly advised not to take on this job yourself. There are a number of things that could go wrong if a stump is left neglected in your yard. Taking the time to understand these hazards could save you from injury and some annoying landscaping complications.
Why is it Important to Remove Tree Stumps?
Let’s be honest, if you’re planting a new garden, you’re going to want it to look tidy, organized, colorful and exciting! An old tree stump poking out of the dirt will ruin your new flowery addition’s beauty. This is especially true if your landscaping renovations are solely for increasing your home’s value. Putting your residence on the housing market? You’ll attract potential buyers who will want to see the exterior of your home. With a bunch of dull, old stumps lying around it will appear neglected. No one wants to move into dingy, ill-maintained space.
Avoid Hazards and Insects!
If your stumps are small and blend into the earth surrounding them, they are tripping hazards. If you have children who like to run around outside get ready for some bruising and painful tears. To make matters worse, if your child has friends over and one of them trips over your stump, you could be held liable for their injuries. Leaving a mound of wood to rot in your backyard attracts some unwanted visitors, as well. Wood borers, termites, beetles, and ants galore! With these creepy critters close to home, they could make their way into the wooden beams that support it. Yikes!
