Many people don’t realize that if you remove a tree, the stump should be removed as well.
In some cases, people get concerned that the expenses that will be incurred to remove the stump will exceed the benefits of stump removal.
This couldn’t be more wrong.
Leaving a tree stump in your garden is not pleasing to the eye at all. It can even grow mossy and gross, creating an eyesore in your landscape.
It can also cause many other problems – most of them, major.
Some of these issues include:
If you have a tree stump left in your garden, its roots can still grow and thrive, even if you’ve chopped the actual tree down. It can damage the pipes in your garden, crack your concrete driveways and fences, even damage the concrete wall of your swimming pool. And of course, the smaller plants in the garden might not thrive since the trunk and roots will suck up all the nutrients first, leaving depleted amounts for your other plants to share.
Expect your kids and guests, including service personnel like postal workers, delivery guys, and more, to trip over the roots and stump that was left behind. It can damage your lawn mower too and even break into your water pipes, causing toxins and more to leech into it, contaminating your family’s drinking water.
A stump is a favorite place for termites and other bugs to nest. Once they do, expect them to quickly move on and attack the other plants in your property and even worse, your home. Termite damage can be expensive so better to not tempt fate and remove the stump immediately.
Removing a stump should be left to the pros.
Attempting to eliminate a stump on your own can be harmful. Unless you have the proper tools and are educated to utilize them, leave stump elimination to the pros. And also, whatever you do, never try to blow up or melt a stump away. You risk damaging your yard or hurting on your own or somebody else.
