5 Reasons Why You Should Remove a Tree Stump
When you hire a professional Sydney tree removal company to remove a tree on your property chances are you will need to decide whether or not to pay to remove the stump. If you’re having a hard time deciding consider these factors when deciding what to do with the stump!
1 – Stumps aren’t pretty. Aesthetically speaking, the sight of a stump definitely isn’t appealing. If you’re meticulous about your yard and landscaping, stump grinding is well worth it. Alternatively just stick a pot plant on it or bury it with mulch!
2 -Stumps are hazardous. Stumps can be a trip hazard, especially for children & elderly. And if a neighbor trips, it may be a liability that falls into your hands!
3 – Stumps can re-grow. Sometimes leaving the stump behind will cause the tree to re-shoot and possibly turn into a full size tree again. Paying to remove the same tree twice isn’t fun 🙂 Alternatively you can apply lots of poison to kill the tree stump if its a species that will grow back!
4 – Stumps can attract insects. When you leave stumps in your lawn, the decaying tree takes a long time to rot away completely. While it’s decaying, the stump may attracts beetles, termites, ants and other wood-boring pests that could attack your house. We don’t recommend people stress about removing a stump for this reason as insects such as termites can fly from miles away to eat your house but sometimes it’s better to be safe than sorry!
5 – Stumps take up precious yard space. Especially if you don’t have a very large yard, the space you lose from the stump and roots may occupy a lot of space. Just think, you can use that space for a vegetable garden!
Typically, you’ll spend extra money stump grinding, but it just might be well worth it. Especially with the price of land in Sydney..
