Should I Have My Stump Removed?
Have you recently had a tree removed, but not the stump? Perhaps the tree fell during a storm and the stump is the only thing remaining. No matter the reason for your remaining stump, it is there! Stumps are often the afterthought of removing a tree. You may tend to focus on the aboveground part of the tree, but the roots and stump are important to remove too. You wouldn’t remove the pests but leave their nest, would you?
Here are some facts about why you need to dump the stump in your yard:
They can create new growth. Stumps stimulate growth. You may notice little sprouts coming out around the trunk.
The roots will result in headaches. Your stump already has its own defined roots system. The roots can also cause havoc in your sewer pipes and paved walkways.
They can rot. Your tree stump will slowly decay. It will also grow more unsightly. The stump will attract pests/insects that love to eat dying wood. These insects could potentially head towards your home.
They are ugly. Stumps are eyes sores, they are just rotting wood in your yard. Your neighbors won’t appreciate the lack of landscaping care either.
They take up space. You can’t use the part of the yard that your stump is occupying. They are also hard to maneuver around when you mow.
They can be dangerous. Stumps in your yard can be hazardous for you and your children. They can be a tripping hazard and they aren't too pleasant to fall on top of. It is best to remove the potential harm from your yard.
