In addition to being obstacles in foot traffic, tree stumps can cause more problems than you may think though most people brush off the stumps as harmless inconveniences. Being more than an eyesore in the yard, these relatively small, flat, and problematic objects are a safety concern, and the stumps can be more of a problem than the tree was. Today, we at call Crecraft for Treecraft Tree Service would like to stress the reasons why you should remove the tree stumps cluttering your property.
Will a Tree Regrow from a Stump?
In general, trees are remarkably resilient and can withstand the elements for decades. Because of their durability and hardiness, a cut down tree that is left as a stump can possibly start popping out sprouts. Though chemical products are available to stop the stump from trying to bounce back, they can cause environmental issues. Hiring a professional to remove the stump is the safest and most effective solution.
Tree Stumps Attract Termites & Pests
As the stumps decay, there are many pests that are attracted to that abandoned stump including carpenter ants, termites, and other unwanted pests. As these critters infest the stump, whether it is for shelter or food, the pests are encroaching to your home. After the tree stump is consumed from the needed resources, the pests will move on and easily choose your home to infest. As an unknowing invitation for a pest infestation, stumps in the yard should not be brushed off in any case. You can help reduce the risk of pests that might otherwise be attracted to the stump by having a pro efficiently remove the stump.
Tree Stumps Make Landscaping Unbalanced
Homeowners are generally proud of a well-balanced and beautifully kept yard, though there are some who may be indifferent to the aesthetics of the landscaping. Depending on the tree stump, the stumps in the landscaping can negatively impact the design and be a real detriment to the overall look of the yard. Your yard will look significantly better and well-manicured when you a trained professional remove the stump.
Keep Tree Roots from Growing Under Foundation
Damage to the foundation, driveways, sidewalks, and plumbing pipes and other such property damage can occur and continue from the roots connecting to the tree stump. The roots can continue to cause damage, despite the belief that cutting the tree is enough to stop any problems it is causing.
Tree Stumps are a Safety Hazard
Severe safety hazards are created with the tree stump left behind. Tripping over the stumps, or tripping and landing on the stump and other such safety concerns can happen amongst the home’s occupants and any visitors. If the wrong person has an accident involving your tree stump, you may be dealing with legal matters as well.
