A Tree Stump Isn’t Pretty
When it comes to aesthetics, stumps aren’t attractive. If you want a nice looking yard, one of the things that you want to do is to remove your stump. Tree stumps are unsightly and actually look like you don’t care much for the look of your yard. It’s possible they could even affect the value of your home, with the new homeowner knowing they will need to get them out of there.
They are trip hazards, can be homes for and attract pests. The tree itself can sent up new growths, the roots continue to grow and can also cause problems. Once the stump eventually starts to rot, it can take years and continue to break into smaller pieces for years.
They Can Be Hazardous
They are dangerous to kids and pets. When they are playing and running in the yard, they probably aren’t looking for the stump. As we mentioned above, that they can trip over it. They also can damage the lawn mower if you hit one accidentally when you’re mowing. They can damage your mower, the blades and even people around. Pieces of the rotting stump can be thrown by your mower and hit people, break windows and damage property. Its just not worth the the risk not to remove a tree stump!
New Trees Can Grow Out Of Them
Sometimes when you leave the stump behind it can mean that some new trees are growing out of it and growing around it. This can make the yard unsightly and also can be very expensive since those shoots can continue to come back. You might need to use chemicals for completely killing them off. No one wants to use more chemicals than are actually need in our yards. They are not good for the environment or our families. The little trees also can leech the nutrients from the plants that are close to them. This means that your flowers aren’t going to get the nutrients needed.
Annoying To Go Around
When a tree stump remains, they are a nuisance and an obstacle that you have to find your way around when you are mowing or weeding the lawn. We have seen some on the edge of driveways as well. Driving over a stump on purpose or accident can be a real problem. Catching the underneath of your car could lead to thousands of dollars in repairs. Its much cheaper to quickly remove a tree stump then paying for damages to your vehicles, or someone that is visiting your house!
A Stump Attracts Insects
When stumps are left in the lawn, the tree is decaying, and it will take a while before it rots completely. When it’s decaying, it is going to attract bugs like ants, beetles and termites. Even though this doesn’t seem like a big problem, it can be when they move from your stump to your house. Why give pests an invitation to get even close to your home.
They Use Up Space In The Yard
This is a problem if you don’t have a really big yard. The space you’re losing from your roots and stump takes away from the amount of space that you can enjoy. This space can be used for a table or flowerbed, or even a swing set for your kids. The roots can be on the surface depending on the type of tree. They could interfere with your garden as well.
