Stump Grinding Columbia

Stump Grinding Columbia. You may wonder why you would like to get rid of a stump, and you may have even considered leaving it on your own farm to decompose it naturally.Stump mills are one of, if not the safest and best methods of removing stumps, and they are the foremost common method of removing stumps from newly removed trees and old existing stumps to permit new plantings and landscaping. A felled tree is not completely removed until all visible roots and surfaces, with the exception of the trunk, have disappeared. Normally the  stump is ground to 3 – 6 inches below the surface.

Tree Services by Columbia Arborists

Firstly, stumps and rotten roots pose a danger to humans and pets, resulting in soft spots within the ground and creating holes into which individuals can fall in.

Second, decomposing roots can negatively affect the ability of new trees and shrubs to be planted within the area after the tree has been removed. It’s important to get rid of the maximum amount organic material as possible from the soil before planting a replacement tree or shrub within the same area, especially if it’s in a backyard or playground. This is even more important if you remove a stump of a sick tree.

If you’re aiming to build a brand new house or addition in a place where a tree has recently grown, you want to remove the stump or roots from the muse. Rotting roots weaken the soil and will cause foundation failure.

In addition, fresh wood within the soil attracts termites and may be removed for cover, and rotten stumps are unsightly. The removal of a plant structure will improve the aesthetics of your yard, landscape or park for years to come back.
