Before you decide to remove a tree in your yard, you will want to consider if you should have the stump removed along with the rest of the tree. Here are 5 of the top reasons we always suggest to remove the stump.
1. The landscape of your home has been proven to have a large impact on the value of your home. An unsightly stump will not directly impact the value of your home, however it can definitely put a negative feeling in the mind of prospective buyers or real estate professionals when they assess your home’s value.
2. Stumps can pose dangers to children at play. We've had customers call us directly to remove a stump because they've had their child trip fall and injure themselves while playing in the yard. We recommend complete removal to avoid any such injuries.
3. Stumps act as obstacles when doing lawn care maintenance. Our clients have damaged their mowers and edgers while trying to maneuver around the pesky stumps. For the life and health of your landscape maintenance tools, we always recommend stump grinding.
4. Stumps are a magnet for insects. A decaying tree or stump attracts termites, ants and many other wood boring insects. These insects can easily infest a nearby home and for this reason, we always recommend removing stumps.
When considering the additional costs involved, the experts here at Stewart's Tree Pro always recommend protecting your home and your home's value with a quick and painless stump grinding.
