More often than not, tree felling requires cutting a tree back to the stump. You’ll need different equipment to remove the stump entirely. At EPDS Tree Services, we offer stump grinding and removal services to help you completely get rid of the tree and its roots. It will benefit your garden.
Tree stump removal doesn’t just improve the look of your garden but has a variety of other benefits. From reducing hazards to minimising pests, below are the top reasons to remove a tree stump.
Tree stumps tend to be an ideal spot for a range of pests such as beetles and other wood-boring insects to breed. The infestation will get worse as your tree stump starts to decay, and eventually, pests will move on to other parts of your garden or even your home where they can cause much damage. It’s best to remove your tree stump right away if you notice insects on it.
Tree stumps can be hazardous for various reasons. The biggest reason being the risk of people tripping or falling over them. If they have sharp pieces of bark sticking out, it can be hazardous to children touching it and pose a real risk if someone were to fall on it.
Often, people leave tree stumps because they give off a natural forest vibe but once they start to rot, they look unsightly. If you don’t use tree stumps as a feature in your garden, they might look out of place and odd.
Tree stumps often restrict how you can use your lawn area. You might have a perfect spot for seating, but your tree stump is inconveniently positioned in the middle. In which case, it would be better to remove it, so you can use your lawn efficiently and create more space.
