Reasons for removing trees from your property are numerous, but what should be done with the stump that is left behind after your tree is gone? Stumps could be entirely removed or ground down, all depending on the client’s personal preference. Stumps can be a serious eyesore but also dangerous if left untended in an odd area. If you now live in Maryland and need help, here are four reasons to consider having your stumps removed from your property through stump grinding services. Read on to learn more!
Stumps Can Host Unwanted Pests Like Termites, Ants, and More
When a stump is left behind in the ground, the leftover wood takes quite a while to rot and break down. The rotting and decomposing process will attract bugs that you do not want nesting in your yard, like beetles, termites, ants, and more. They will initially be attracted to your slump but will migrate to other spots of your yard and possibly your house, too. If they spread into your home, you could find yourself dealing with a costly pest control bill. Termites especially could lead to expensive pest control bills. Avoid this entirely through professional stump grinding services.
Stumps Take Up Space in the Yard That Could be Used for Better Purposes
Let’s face the facts: stumps are not pretty. They sit in your front yard and take up a lot of valuable space, possibly decreasing your curb appeal as they start to rot. If it is a large stump, it is covering a space where you could install a new landscaping bed or outdoor living space. Even smaller stumps could create problems, such as when your lawn is being mowed. It becomes one other obstacle to navigate around and makes mowing a bit more challenging.
Stumps are Hazardous to Animals, People, and Lawn Maintenance Tools
Anybody walking or running through your lawn might end up tripping over a stump in the lawn. This might prove particularly hazardous to kids as well as animals, especially if the stump has already been invaded by insects like ants that could bite. The insects mixed with the hardness of the leftover wood might end up causing some serious injuries. People tripping and falling because of a stump could open you up to potential lawsuits too. Avoid this with a certified arborist who knows how to remove a stump.
