Is A Stump Grinding Necessary?

When a tree is cut down or removed, an unsightly stump is often left behind. While some homeowners choose to leave tree stumps, there are far more benefits to stump grinding. Take a look:

Improves Aesthetics

Admit it. Stumps can be an eyesore. It disrupts the look and feel of your yard or garden. Removing the stump gives you a clean slate to landscape or replant in that area. Getting rid of the stump gives your property a better look.

Increases Usable Space

Stumps take up valuable space in your yard. By eliminating the stump, you open up a lot more room to add more plants or a landscaping feature. This allows you to utilize every inch of your yard.

Removes Hazards

Protruding stumps can also mean tripping hazards. Stump grinding removes this safety risk. With just a simple process, you can create an even, walkable surface in your entire yard.

Prepare For New Plantings

If you want to plant trees, more flowers, or shrubs in the same spot as the removed tree, that old, ugly stump really has to go. Grinding that stump down and removing the tree roots gets the area plant-ready.

Prevent Insect Damage

Stumps will eventually decay and invite ants, termites, and other unwanted pests.  Once they are done with the stump, they will look for a new home… perhaps your home.  Better to avoid attracting termites in the first place by removing the stump once and for all.

Allow Proper Lawn Mowing
Unattended stumps create obstacles when mowing your lawn. If you eliminate stumps, you will have an easier time mowing and maybe won’t have to sharpen that mower blade quite so often.

Stump Grinding vs. Stump Removal

After tree removal, you’ll need to choose between stump grinding or stump removal. What is the main difference between the two? 

Stump grinding is often the better option for small to medium-sized stumps. As a result, it leaves behind a clean surface with no major digging required. The grinder can access tight areas. It is applicable especially when working close to buildings or fences. It is also less expensive than stump removal.

Stump removal requires heavy equipment to pull out the entire stump. The surrounding lawn and landscaping can be damaged by both the equipment and the tree roots coming up. Also, large holes are left behind which will need to be filled and re-leveled afterwards.

For most residential properties in Oklahoma, stump grinding provides an affordable and easy solution. The grinder can eliminate stumps of any size. There will be little restoration work required after. This makes it the preferred method for most homeowners looking to remove small to medium stumps without disturbing their lawns.
