There are many reasons why you should remove your stump from your yard.
They Aren’t the Most Attractive Tulip in the Garden
The first reason is that they really aren’t aesthetically pleasing. There are ways to avoid it looking unappealing, but it is more than likely that the best option available is for the stump to be removed.
They Can Be Dangerous
Stumps can also be dangerous. If you have children then there is a possibility for them to trip over the stump while they are outside running. Additionally, stumps can also pose a liability issue if your neighbor trips over it. I think that is more than reason enough to get it removed. Another possible hazard is accidentally running into it while you are mowing your lawn.
They Still Contribute To the Growth of Sprouts
Stumps can also still contribute to tree growth. Pollen doesn’t stop once the tree is cut down. A stump can cause new sprouts to grow around it. In addition to causing sprouts to grow, it also leeches important nutrients away from the surrounding plants. It is possible that the only way to remove these new sprouts is to use chemicals.
However, there is always the possibility of using something of the holistic nature to get rid of the sprouts. Aesthetic Tree and Hedge Services offers their customers a tree stump grinding service to remove the leftover stump from your yard, call us: (604)721-7370
Stumps Are Generally Annoying
The people of Surrey probably already know this. If you don’t own a weed whacker and have no intention of bending down to pull the weeds, then stumps become bothersome. It’s no fun having to bend down every time you try to garden to pull weeds out of certain crevices because you can’t get to them any other way.
They Provide a Neon Sign for Insects
Stumps also attract insects. Stump doesn’t decay at a fast rate; it takes a rather long time. My aunt currently have two stumps in her backyard and both of them have been there for more than five years. A stump can attract anything from beetles to termites and any other wood eating pest. Insects are okay when they are simply in your yard, but when they enter your home, and then it becomes a completely different story.
They Are Space Consumers
Stumps also take up extra space. If you don’t have a very large yard in the first place in Surrey, then you want to capitalize on all the space you can. The stump still has roots so that is not only space above ground that it is taking up, it is also taking up space underneath the ground that could be equally capitalized upon. If you removed the stump you would be able to do anything from maintaining a healthy garden of whatever plant you want or you can set up a picnic table for your kids to sit at.
