Why Remove Tree Stumps? After trees are felled and removed from a commercial site, it takes added time and money to remove the stump that remains. Grinding stumps may require a small investment of resources, but it is well worth it! Here are just a few reasons why commercial property owners in Northeast Ohio decide to have their tree stumps removed or grinded:
- They are ugly! Everyone can agree that old stumps dotting a landscape are unattractive. And when weeds and other plants start to grow around them, they look even worse! Removing these eyesores is absolutely essential to creating an inviting, beautiful commercial landscape.
- They are can be hazardous. Tree stumps pose tripping hazards to people visiting your commercial property, leaving you open to expensive personal injury lawsuits.
- They can be unsanitary. In addition to being ugly and unprofessional, rotting tree stumps can attract insects and play host to mold and parasites that can spread elsewhere on your property.
- They can cause new trees to sprout. Some stumps will form sprouts instead of rotting, eventually transforming into unattractive shrubs or trees.
Without intervention, it can take upwards of 10 years for a stump to rot away. There are a variety of ways to remove a tree stump proactively, from using harsh chemicals to employing good old fashioned elbow grease. By far the fastest, most cost-effective, and most ecologically sound method, however, is stump grinding. While it is possible to rent a tree stump grinder, they are hard to manage and are dangerous if you have not been properly trained on their use. A tree care professional will have the knowledge and experience to grind any stump, large or small.
