Whatever the reason may be that you’re considering stump grinding, at Vision Tree Service, we have the tools and technique to get the job done quickly and effectively.
Is It Better To Grind A Stump Or Remove It?
If you’re weighing the decision between stump grinding and stump removal, then you likely have realized that both options have their pros and cons.
The stump removal process is the more intrusive of the two options, as it involves ripping the bulky tree stump out of the ground and digging out the tree’s overall root system. An invasive option, stump removal requires a significant amount of time, effort, and machinery to get the job done. Once the stump is removed, the landscape is a clean slate – but the extensive hole that results will be hard to ignore for as long as it takes to fill it in.
A much less intrusive option, stump grinding centers on completely shredding the stump down into small wood chips. Vision Tree ISA Certified Arborists will utilize our cutting-edge equipment and experienced technique to get the stump removed in an efficient, timely manner. While stump removal does leave the root system behind, this issue will gradually take care of itself. The old tree’s roots are spread out underground, usually within a 4 to 12-foot area from where the stump stood; over the next 10-plus years, this root system will naturally decay, ultimately breaking down entirely. If the stump removed is large in volume, the chip pile produced can also be quite sizable, but the chips can be used as mulch for other plants in your landscape or can be used to help fill in the hole and gradually decay themselves as well.
Remove A Tree Stump Or Leave It In The Ground?
Once a tree has been removed, leaving a tree stump where it is might not seem like such a big deal at first glance, but the reality is that they can be an issue for a wide variety of reasons. Some may be as simple as the stump being a trip hazard for your family, or it makes it difficult to mow your lawn with ease. Other reasons can be a bit more complex.
Shortly after a stump is separated from the tree, they begin a prolonged decaying process. Over time a rotting stump often becomes home for property damaging pests, including the dreaded termites and carpenter ants. Leaving a stump to rot may be a more straightforward process in some ways, but doing so can endanger the other plants and trees throughout your landscape and, ultimately, your home.
Future landscaping designs must also be considered when weighing the future of a stump. Planting new trees near an old stump is not advisable as long as its far-reaching root system is in the way. Removing the stump not only takes it out of the equation, the wood chips that result can be integrated into any future landscaping efforts as mulch. When discussing your future landscaping plans with us, rest assured the ISA Certified Arborists at Vision Tree Service are here to help. They will advise the best way to remove the tree stump, utilize its chips, and replace it with an affordable and visually appealing alternative.
