Stumps are definitely an unattractive sight that spoils the look of your landscape, but this is not the only reason why they should be removed. Let’s see what the other reasons for using a professional stump grinding service are:

  • Stumps are dangerous. When your children run and play in the yard, they may trip over a stump and injure themselves.
  • Stumps cause new tree growth. Stumps often have sprouts, which can develop into a new tree. If you did not want the old tree there, you would not want the new one, either.
  • Stumps make lawn mowing hard. Tree stumps present an obstacle for lawn mowers and can be hard to maneuver around.
  • Stumps attract pests. It takes time for a decaying stump to rot away completely. A decaying stump attracts harmful insects such as termites, ants, beetles, rodents, and even snakes. From there, they can easily enter your home.
