There are many reasons why it’s a good idea to remove tree stumps from your grounds. For one, tree stumps are unsightly and can put a damper on the appearance of your yard or property. They also harbor pests such as termites and other insects that can spread to the surrounding plants, trees, and landscape. Neglected stumps may also continue growing, but nothing in the likes of a beautiful tree. Anything growing out of a stump will be limited to shoots and weeds, which aren’t pretty to look at and take away nutrients from surrounding soil.
Rotting wood is also the perfect environment for mold growth, which can spread to surrounding plants and cause disease. And especially in the case of a family household, a stump can be a trip-and-fall hazard that gets in the way of enjoying every inch of your property.
