A lot of homeowners have faced the problem of tree removal, which doesn’t always end when a dead tree is being cut down. Removing the tree’s stump is a wildly different process – most times, it’s more difficult than the actual tree cutting. As a result of this, many homeowners have chosen to forgo the removal of the entire tree stump. However, listed below are several reasons why you should consider stump removal on your property.
The presence of a tree stump in your yard can pose safety hazards for anyone who may run into it. When the stump starts to get covered by grass or weeds, it might be accidentally run over while cutting the grasses or cleaning the lawn, which could possibly damage your lawn mower, leaving you with no other option than to pay for repairs or get a new one. It becomes a difficult obstacle as you try cutting the grass around it without touching the stump.
Tree stumps attract bugs and different vermin. Termites are a particularly damaging insect that could move to the home once they have grown too big in number to be restricted by the stump.
A neglected stump on your property will certainly invite fungi, rot, and pests, such as carpenter ants and other armful ones, which can spread to various areas of your home.
Although live trees could as well be susceptible to disease and infestations, tree stumps are primarily vulnerable. If tree stumps harbors disease, it's possible that the disease will spread to other live trees.
There are always tendencies for tree stumps to generate new tree growth. Sooner or later, you start noticing the growth of a small shoots on that particular spot where you never wanted a tree; certainly, this will make your yard look less appealing. Further, as stump decay they tend to foster mushroom growth in your yard – something that is equally unattractive.
Tree stumps consume space in your yard. If you’re trying to plant new trees, create a lawn space, add a pool or build play vicinity, a stump could foil your plans. Moreover, (this is true for live trees, too) roots could keep growing and intrude with other infrastructures such as pipes, sidewalks, driveways, and many others.
