Reasons You Don’t Want Tree Stumps in Your Yard

There are many good reasons to get rid of the tree stumps in your yard.

  • Stumps Spoil Landscaping

    Generally, no one likes to gaze out into their yard that is full of old stumps dotting the landscape. That’s not pretty. Indeed, it’s even worse if plants start growing on the stumps.

  • Stumps Lower Your Property’s Value

    Unless you happen to find a stump-aficionado for a buyer, those unsightly things in your yard are sure to lower your property’s value.

  • Stumps Are a Safety Hazard

    Large stumps are ugly but small stumps can be an outright hazard to your health. Covered by grass, weeds, or plants, they can remain hidden until you stub your toe on them or trip over.

  • Stumps Make Landscaping Difficult

    Planting new trees, adding a pool, or mowing a clean garden space is difficult when your garden is dotted with stumps. Maneuvering around a stump on a mower is difficult. They are a nuisance.

  • Stumps Can Spread Disease

    Stumps attract vermin and provide them a safe harbor which can be a source of infestations and disease.

  • Stumps Can Damage Property

    Stumps can give birth to new trees that can grow and interfere with plumbing, sidewalks, driveways, and so on.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are various factors that affect the total price of professional removal. When professionals come in with a commercial grinder, it usually costs about $3 per diameter inch of the stump. If you’re clearing large areas (multiple stumps), you could face an hourly rate of $150.

At Christianson Tree Experts, we still recommend that you work with a professional to ensure everything is done properly. You’ll need the right power drill, as well as potassium nitrate. Going to try to burn the stump on your own? At a minimum, talk to the local fire department. The last thing you want to do is miss safety precautions that lead to an out-of-control blaze.

One of the critical considerations to make when you are looking to choose a tree removal service is the time of year you opt to get your tree removed. Now, if you have a pressing reason to want the tree gone, this is going to impact when you might choose to get in touch with removal experts. However, if you can take a measured approach, the best time to do this would be the winter. In the winter months, the trees are bare, and this makes it easier to remove them more efficiently.

Tree removal services could save your property from serious harm in many ways. Make sure you get in touch with a local tree expert if your tree has become a risk, a hazard, or a severe inconvenience. Here are some ways in which removing a tree can save your property.
