Because it tends to be cheaper many people opt for simply cutting down a tree on their property without having a professional service remove it stump and all completely. A Phoenix, Arizona tree trimming service has a few good reasons for why you should grind down the leftover stump.
If you don’t have the tree’s stump and roots removed it could seriously inhibit your ability to plant other foliage and flowers and have them thrive in that surrounding area.
The roots will keep you from planting within 5 to 10 feet of the stump. If you want to replace that old tree with a new one you will also need to grind up the stump to allow for more space and better soil to plant in it’s spot.
Stumps left behind take up space, lack curb appeal, and inhibit other plants from growing successfully several feet around them. It’s a good idea to get them ground down soon after the tree itself has been cut down.
