stump grinding tree tech tree service mooresville

Tree stumps are the remaining part of the tree once it has been cut down. After a tree has been felled, the stump, while useful for telling the age of the tree, can be useless. It takes up space and weakens the ground around it with its roots. However, stumps can sometimes grow new trees, either on the stump itself or along the ground next to the stump. Most residential trees are removed for a specific purpose, such as a falling hazard next to homes. Thus, it’s better to remove the tree stump than leave it sitting.

Tree Tech Tree Service in Mooresville offers the best tree stump removal services. We use stump grinding as our preferred method, which basically chops the tree stump into little pieces in order to remove it. Stump grinding will remove the entire stump and ensure there is nothing left for insects to call home. Some local tree services will opt for stump removal, which removes your tree stump by digging a big hole around it and then pulling the stump out entirely, much like you would a weed. Below, we’ll go over some of the reasons you do want to remove the tree stump in your yard. Call our local tree company today for stump removal!


Aesthetic Reasons

As mentioned previously, tree stumps can take up a lot of space, especially if your tree was fully-grown. You probably want that space to either turn back into a yard or plant flowers. They are hard to mow around and overall don’t serve any value to your landscaping. If you hit one hard enough with your lawn mower, you can break your mower as well. They are often unpleasant to look at, and they can lower your house’s value in the eyes of a buyer.

Safety Reasons

Tree stumps pose a safety hazard, especially if you have young children at home who like to run around wildly with no care as to where they are going. Smaller tree stumps can pose tripping hazards if the grass around them grows up, hiding them from view. Tree stumps can also weaken the ground around them. The soil that the roots had been holding may blow away, leaving sunken ground that could cause a sprained ankle.

Can Grow More Trees

Tree stumps do have the ability to sprout new growth. After all, their root system is intact, so if the tree was healthy when you cut it down, it can sprout branches and leaves and begin to live again. Smaller trees can grow up around stumps as well, and if these grow large, you’ll have the same problem that you had before.

Attracts Insects

Old tree stumps are in essence decaying matter, which is great food for insects and pests. Carpenter ants, beetles and termites will see your tree stump as a feast and can take up residence, posing problems for you. Tree stumps can also harbor diseases and fungi, and their root system can affect the surrounding plants adversely.
