Stump Grinding Newcastle
Another service we provide after your tree removal and then to complete your tree work is the Stump Grinding Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens, Maitland & Cessnock. Once your tree has been removed, we are able to bring in another piece of machinery that will enable us to grind your stump below ground. There are many reasons why grinding is seen to be necessary following your tree removal? Here are 5 reasons why your may think about arranging Stump Grinding:-
- Trip hazard – leaving a stump sitting just out of the ground can be a trip hazard particularly in grassed areas and therefore this can cause trip hazards. Kids may trip over whilst running or the elderly may lose their footing, fall and break a bone. Stump grinding reduces risks.
- The look – stumps left to rot don’t contribute to your place looking neat and tidy. Stump grinding adds value to your property.
- A nuisance – when you use the whipper snipper or mow around a stump, the stump is not easy to manoeuvre around. Stump grinding allows grass to grow over the top leaving the place easy to mow.
- Attract insects – stumps left take a long time to rot completely. While the stump is decaying it can attract insects, beetles, termites and any other wood-boring pest. Eventually these pests will look for other forms and more importantly, can spread to your home. Stump grinding reduces pest activity.
- Stumps cause new tree growth – sometimes leaving the stump behind contributes to new sprouts, which can result in many small trees growing around the stump. Stump grinding removes the likelihood of any new growth.
