Steadfast Tree Care, a tree service based in Ruther Glen, Virginia, has recently published a blog post where they stressed the importance of having stump removal included in tree removal service in Manquin. The primary benefit is that it will save both time and money to have the tree removal and stump grinding done in one visit. Furthermore, leaving the stump behind will have negative effects such as being a health and safety risk for the people around. People, especially children, may trip or fall over these stumps and can get serious injuries.

There is also a tendency for smaller trees to grow around a tree stump. These smaller trees may be quite expensive to get rid off if they are left alone for too long. In addition, these trees can get the nutrients that are meant for other plants in the yard. The full blog post can be viewed here.

The key reason for stump removal is that stumps are an eyesore. Even if the rest of the yard has a great landscape, people will be distracted by the presence of one or more tree stumps. Worse still, the stump may develop an infection that could spread to neighboring plants and trees.

There are two primary ways of eliminating tree stumps: stump removal and stump grinding. Stump grinding consists of shaving off what is left of the tree trunk until it is totally gone. However, the roots in the ground are not eliminated, but allowed to deteriorate over time. This has two disadvantages. The grinding process will pollute the air, at least temporarily, and the roots will be left behind, which means replanting in the area will be a challenge. The advantage of stump grinding is it is cheaper and faster.

Stump removal will require digging up the roots of the tree stump. This will require a lot of time and is labor-intensive. It may take a number of days to complete the task. Holes may have to be drilled in the stump and a kind of chemical poured in to break down the stump and soften the soil. This process is not actually environment-friendly as it involves the use of harmful chemicals that may negatively affect the plants nearby.

Phillip Wood, owner of Steadfast Tree Care, says, “A major advantage of stump removal is that you won’t need to wait 10 years or more for the roots to decay naturally before you can use the ground again. However, if you want to replant, it’s important to find out whether the acidity of the soil can support a new tree.”

He adds, “Whether you choose to remove a tree stump or go for the stump grinding options, this type of work is best left to the professionals. Our experts at Steadfast Tree Care are happy to deliver a comprehensive tree removal job, done in the safest, most efficient manner.”
