4 Signs You Need Tree Stump Removal, Milton, Pennsylvania

Sometimes, trees fall or must be cut down to create room for new construction, and many times, the stumps are left behind. Travis Monk Tree Service in Milton, PA, has certified arborists who know the unique challenges that tree stumps can cause for homeowners.

To simplify your life, they’ve provided four signs you should consider professional stump removal:

1. New Growth

If you notice new growth coming from a stump in your yard, you should invest in a professional tree stump removal. Many homeowners don’t realize that a completely new tree can sprout from a stump. That means instead of paying for stump removal now, you may pay for more costly tree removal later. 

2. It’s Become an Obstacle

stump removalIf you’ve scraped your lawnmower blade too many times to count, it may be time for tree stump removal. These wooden obstacles not only make yard work difficult, but it can also pose a safety risk for children playing or anyone walking in the grass. Plus, it’s an eyesore that will improve the look of your landscape once it’s removed.

3. Pests Are Arriving

As old tree stumps begin to decompose, the rotting wood can attract any array of pests, such as termites, ants, and flies. If the stump is left untreated and the insect population begins to grow, you are placing your home at risk for invasion and damage.

4. You Have Multiple Stumps

Ambitious homeowners may attempt do-it-yourself tree stump removal, but many underestimate the amount of time and labor involved to fully remove the stump. If you have a yard full of them, it’s best to call in the professionals for efficient removal.

If you notice any of these signs, you should reach out to the tree service professionals with Travis Monk Tree Service. This locally owned and operated company has the tools and training to effectively remove your problem stumps at an affordable price. For your consultation, call (570) 490-4634, or reach out to them online.
