Top 3 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Remove a Stump Yourself, Honolulu, Hawaii

Once you’ve removed that troublesome tree from your yard, what’s left in its spot is nothing short of an eyesore. When faced with the leftover stump, should you try to remove this problem yourself or call in the experts to help? The professionals at Sherwood’s Tree Service in Honolulu, HI, share with you the top three reasons why you should not attempt stump removal on your own.


Wrapping a chain around that stump and attempting to rip it out by hooking it to your hitch sounds simple.  But often, that stump will have roots that run deeper than you might expect, and you’ll likely only end up removing your bumper.  


Stump RemovalThe cost to rent stump removal equipment isn’t cheap.  You’re looking at several hundred dollars per day to rent a stump grinder, and if you’re inexperienced at the task, it will take you longer than expected.  For each day it takes you to get rid of that stump, your rental bill just continues to increase.


Without the proper tools and knowledge, tree stump removal can be quite dangerous.  Attempting to operate a complex machine that you’ve never used before risks your safety and that of those around you. Also, you could make a mistake that sends debris airborne, which could cause damage to your property or that of your neighbors.
