Reasons To Remove Tree Stumps From Your Property
For many property owners, the sight of a tree stump in their yard is a constant source of annoyance. Tree stumps are not visually pleasing and can stand out like a sore thumb on an otherwise immaculate looking lawn. It can be an eyesore even on the most organized exterior landscape.
Aside from aesthetics, tree stumps that are left behind can serve as a tripping and injury hazard on your property. This is especially true if you have children and/or pets. The last thing you want is to have your child or dog running around in the yard, only to have him or her trip and sprain an ankle or worse. Not to mention, if someone else injures him or herself on your property thanks to a tree stump, you could be held liable, further making it an unnecessary risk to have on your lawn.
In addition, leftover tree stumps make the upkeep of the exterior of your property more difficult. Tree stumps also make it harder to trim your lawn, pluck weeds from it and do other chores. Even worse, if you accidentally clip that tree stump with your mower, it can cause it to break, and provide you with another headache.
Another common issue that tree stumps create is they tend to be a destination for unwanted insects. No one wants insects attracted to their property, but a tree stump is often a surefire way to have a proliferation of insects take up shop in the exterior of your home. The reason being is many types of insects are attracted to decaying trees and start to live in the rotting ones. Since it takes years and years for trees to fully deteriorate and decompose, this will not be a short term issue. The issue is even more exasperating when it is termites, who can cause all sorts of damage to the structure of your home if they get too close - a relatively minor issue like having a tree stump in your yard can turn into a much more serious and expensive issue if it creates a major insect problem.
Stumps can also cause unwanted trees to start growing. A small, unplanned tree can adversely affect the landscape design of your home. If you try removing a tree that has already set its roots - this is a difficult endeavor as the roots will steal nutrients from other trees, plants and shrubs nearby. Tree stump removal is the way to go - early.
