A few words about the process.
Stump removal could be a complicated process, requiring many different steps to be performed correctly. Some people like to burn their stumps or use certain substances to accelerate the stump’s decay. However, such methods could be potentially dangerous if not performed by an experienced individual using the proper precautions: fire or decay could spread to the rest of your backyard. Stump removal without professional support could be very labor intensive and time-consuming. In fact, it could take up to several weeks. Most professional landscaping companies use dedicated stump grinding devices (stump grinders) in order to cut down stumps after removing dead or unwanted trees.
Put safety first.
Tree stumps left hanging around in your backyard (or garden) might actually be the gateway to a lot of safety issues or other annoyances that might compromise your space. For example, a tree stump can really contribute to the growth of new sprouts, and therefore, a new tree. It is quite common for sprouts to grow from stumps that are left unsupervised, and oftentimes, this might lead to a number of small trees or bushes to grow around the stump. You probably removed the previous tree for a reason, and maybe you even paid someone to perform the task. If that’s the case, it is pretty safe to state that the last thing you might want is just another tree.
Safety concerns, of course, also extends to the welfare of your family: children are known to run around and play in your garden or backyard. They might not realize that there is a stump in the way, and they might get hurt by tripping over it.
Get your garden to look just right.
People love to live in beautiful homes. A pleasant environment is not purely a matter of aesthetics: a tidy space can also be safer and more rewarding, enchanting the lifestyle of your family.
In some cases, a huge tree stump left to rot in the middle of your garden or backyard might not look very pretty. If you are concerned about trying to make your space look better, you should consider having your stumps removed.
Tree stumps can also cause some accidents, as well as some damage to your garden equipment. Many a homeowner have experienced the discomfort of running into an old stump, perhaps, covered in grass or bushes, with their expensive lawn mower! This could cause complete lawnmower destruction or expensive repair bills.
Why use a professional service to do it?
Removing a stump might not be as simple as you may think, and it might require certain power tools that could be dangerous to users that are not very experienced. The most important reason why you should consider hiring a professional in order to grind and remove your stumps is a matter of safety. In other words, hiring people who know what they’re doing will give you peace of mind and one less thing to worry about! In addition to that, if you are considering doing it yourself, you might not realize that the costs of purchasing the proper equipment needed to perform such a task might be a lot more than simply hiring someone to hand the issue on your behalf.
Hiring a professional to perform the job, as mentioned earlier, is usually a relatively cost-effective solution, with rates varying depending on the sheer size of the stump to remove. Some companies even rent tools, such as stump grinders, to people who prefer to perform the job in a DIY fashion.
When should you hire a professional to remove your stumps?
In most cases, tree stumps are what’s left over after you have proceeded to remove a dead tree or even a healthy tree that needed to go away for safety reasons (perhaps, it was too close to your house or a neighbor’s property).
It is quite common for tree removal companies and landscapers to offer an overall rate featuring stump removal services, but it is not always the case. If you are looking to remove a tree, and also get the stump removed in the process, make sure you check with your provider of choice and see if the service is also offered. If you are still looking to get your stump removed after a tree removal work, you are always going to be able to do so at a later date for a reasonable price under most circumstances.
