Why Tree Removal Services Should Include Stump Removal, Midland City, Alabama

There are many reasons you might need to remove a tree from your yard, but not all homeowners realize the importance of removing the remaining stump, too. If you hire a tree removal service for storm damage cleanup, to remove a diseased or dead tree, or because you need routine tree trimming, don’t be surprised if they recommend removing any tree stumps they see. 

Why Removing the Tree Stump Is Important

It’s Safer

tree removal serviceTree stumps provide a hazardous barrier for children and the elderly who might not see stumps while walking or running in your yard. If a stranger or neighbor fell over the stump and injured themselves, you could also be liable for a personal injury lawsuit. Besides being a tripping hazard, old stumps can also damage landscaping equipment such as lawn mowers.

They Can Attract Pests

Decaying trees are like buffets to beetles, ants, termites, and other wood-eating pests looking for a safe place to nest. Left alone, those pests can eventually venture out and discover nearby houses. The last thing you want is an infestation in your home because you failed to hire a tree removal service to remove and grind up any old tree stumps in your yard.

Tree Stumps Can Encourage New Trees to Grow 

While new trees might sound like a good addition to your yard, the sprouts that could emerge around your old tree stumps will be small and unsightly. Plus, they can act like parasites, taking away much-needed water and nutrients from other plant life in your yard.
