The Importance of Stump Grinding

Trees are a valuable addition to any landscape and offer many landscape and environmental benefits. However, when a tree is severely damaged or dead, it must be cut down before wreaking havoc on your premises. The last thing you want is a big branch or the entire tree falling on your roof. Even after getting rid of the tree, you still have the stump to deal with the stump, and that’s where we come in as the go-to stump removal service. At Southern Star Stump, we leverage state-of-the-art equipment to efficiently and safely eliminate the eyesore before things get out of hand. Let’s look at the benefits of stump grinding.

Increase Property Value

If you list your home for sale, we recommend enhancing the aesthetics of your landscape. Many potential buyers look at the face value of a property, and a slowly decaying stump may affect their decision. Stump removal is an excellent way to ensure your property is tidy and appealing, reflecting its overall value. Leaving a stump unattended can attract unwanted critters to your property, which adds to the problem.

Create Room

Besides improving the beauty of your landscape, stump removal also creates breathing room below and above the ground. If you don’t have invasive projects lined up, we recommend stump grinding to minimize the damage. However, invasive projects like pool construction or a gazebo require the removal of the entire stump and root system. We account for plans to help you make the best decision for your property.

Save Time

As mentioned, stump grinding is less invasive than getting rid of the entire root system. It entails the use of a grinding saw which should be handled by a professional to mitigate potential safety risks. The stump is ground several inches below the surface where it can be seen, saving time in removing the entire root system and the subsequent repair costs. Stump removal can take days to complete, but stump removal gets the job done within minutes.

Environmentally Friendly

Tree diseases usually spread from one tree to another, and if the problem is not addressed early, it can compromise the health of your yard. The most effective way of detecting a diseased or damaged tree is by scheduling regular inspections by a professional tree care company. Our arborists have extensive industry knowledge and experience, allowing us to detect the slightest signs before they become more pronounced. If a tree is severely diseased, stump grinding removes it before contaminating the surrounding plant life.

Prevent Safety

A stump in your backyard may not be a significant cause for concern, but it can be a tripping hazard, especially for senior citizens and children. If you have not installed outdoor lighting, anyone walking outside can hurt themselves, and you can be held liable. The most effective way to prevent such issues is by hiring a tree service to address the problem. We don’t recommend DIY stump grinding or removal, as it increases the risk of damage and injuries.
