Many home owners leave their tree stumps intact after cutting down a tree simply because they don’t see the need of removing the stump. Stump grinding Newcastle is an inexpensive removal process where a machine is used to grind the stump until flat, solid ground is left.
So why do you need to go through the trouble of hiring a professional to remove the tree stump? Tree stumps aren’t as harmless as most people think.
1: Aesthetic Reasons
If nothing else, tree stumps are unsightly. Most real estate agents report that it’s harder to sell a property littered with tree stumps. Even if you aren’t looking to sell, removing the tree stump to create a level, beautiful yard pays
dividends in aesthetic appeal.
There are other removal methods but stump grinding Newcastle stands out as the best option. It doesn’t leave unsightly and potentially dangerous holes in the ground.
2: Eliminate New Tree Growth
Some tree stumps are notorious for sprouting new growth every once in a while. It can be frustrating and expensive to repeatedly remove the new growth. Chemical solutions may be effective but they can harm the soil and surrounding plants.
Some new tree stump growth may also steal essential nutrients from surrounding plants. Stump grinding is an effective solution in this case because it is environmentally friendly especially compared to chemicals. The waste material from the grinding process makes great mulch.
3: Avoid Insects and Diseases
Tree stumps are prone to insect and disease infestation as they decay. Common infestations include ants, termites and beetles which can also infest surrounding trees and vegetation and even your home.
Stump grinding Newcastle is more affordable much quicker than alternative stump removal methods so there is no reason to risk infestation that can easily be avoided.
4: Remove Safety Hazards
You may not mind unsightly stumps or even the insects that come with them but if you have small children, you definitely need removal. Surrounding brush may grow and obscure the stump causing a tripping hazard while children are playing.
There also might be liability issues if a neighbor or workman trips or is injured on the tree stump. Lastly, consider that you can damage your gardening equipment such as a lawn mower if the blades get caught in the stump.
Again, stump grinding is effective because the machine is easily maneuvered to the precise point and removes the stump with minimal disturbance to your landscaping and surrounding trees.
5: Free Up Precious Yard Space
Finally, consider the space that a tree stump occupies and what you could do with it. A flowerbed, pick nick table or play equipment are better replacements for a stump that only causes problems.
Stump grinding Newcastle is an inexpensive solution that offers flexibility more options of what to do with your yard. The process also leaves the ground intact so you don’t have to do any major landscaping jobs to restore the area the stump occupied.
These are just a few good reasons to get stump removal as soon as possible. The biggest advantage is this is an inexpensive and quick process so there is no excuse to live with stumps on your yard.
