The Advantages Of Stump Removal
A tree stump is nothing more than a mass of decaying and dying material, which can be very large depending on the size of the tree. It poses a health risk to the rest of your garden and/or landscape. Trees that have been recently felled can produce new suckers off the stump that is unwanted. This can cause an unsightly mess that can also be difficult to manage.
The decaying wood can become infected with diseases like Honey Fungus and that can spread to your healthy plants. Honey Fungus is an invasive fungal infection that can be very hard to eradicate and it can be deadly to other plants, shrubs and trees. Having the stump removed can ensure you don’t find yourself fighting some type of invasive fungus.
Having the stump removed eliminates the tripping and stumbling hazard a stump can cause. This is especially true if it is located in a traffic area. If it is located on your lawn, stump removal makes it much easier to mow your lawn properly, without having to avoid the stump. It also ensures you are able to use the space in the future for other flowers and bushes should you wish to.
Stumps can also cause a termite infestation, which can damage other plants and there is even the risk of damaging the house itself. Having the stump removed ensure that the termites aren’t able to move in.
Stump roots can cause damage underground. Taking the risk doesn’t make a lot of sense when the tree doesn’t even exist any longer. Having the stumps removed ensure that you minimize the damage by roots, which can run a great distance underground, especially when the trees are large.
There are different methods that can be used in stump removal, so it’s a good idea to call the professionals to discuss what your options are and which one they recommend. Sit back and enjoy the speedy transformation your space takes on.
