5 Reasons to Invest in Stump Removal, North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania

For the safety of your home and power lines, or to make way for a new addition, you may have to cut down a tree. Though the remainders appear innocuous and often don’t bother residents, there are several benefits to investing in professional stump removal. From maintaining curb appeal to health and safety concerns, here are a few reasons why enlisting an arborist is in your best interest.

Why Stump Removal Is Beneficial

1. Property Value

Aesthetically, your real estate looks better with a well-groomed yard and verdant trees. A stump is an unsightly addition to an otherwise groomed and desirable landscaping.

2. Safety & Convenience

stump removalTree stumps pose a liability risk if you have kids who play in the yard with their friends. They’re easy to trip over and can cause harm to those who aren’t careful and mindful. Further, they are an inconvenience when mowing the lawn, as they’re difficult to circumvent with equipment. 

3. Roots

Roots will continue to grow even if a tree is cut. They can become invasive and damage various parts of your home, like the sidewalk, driveway, and pipes. If left unattended, not only will they interfere with your infrastructure, but it will also be more expensive to remove later.

4. Infestations & Disease

Insects and rodents often build homes in stumps. Moreover, if there is rot, the part can harbor diseases, which spread through the roots to other trees or bushes, causing you to have to treat or remove more of your landscaping. Stump removal eliminates these possibilities.
