Even though we hate to see them go, sometimes a tree must be cut down. This can leave an unsightly stump, and now you’re not sure what to do with it. Or perhaps you’ve purchased a property with an otherwise beautiful yard, but a few stumps are in the way. Whatever the reason, professional stump removal can be the answer to your problems, for a few different reasons…
Prevent regrowth. Many tree species will simply regrow at the sight of the old stump. If you were hoping to use that space for something else, or you want to prevent the same problem from recurring, you will need to have the stump removed quickly. Some species will begin regrowing within a matter of months.
Ward off pests. An old, rotting stump can make the perfect home for problem insects who are looking for a new place to live. In particular, old stumps can invite termites, and you don’t want those getting comfortable in your yard.
Free up space. By removing existing stumps, you can free up room for tag football, a homemade volleyball court, a swingset, or a swimming pool. Really, the possibilities are endless. And of course, giving yourself a blank canvas means you can install new landscaping features or a garden if you prefer.
They’re just plain unsightly. Most people simply don’t find old stumps to be very attractive. Professional stump removal can make your lawn more beautiful, boost your home’s curb appeal, and potentially make it more appealing to buyers when you’re ready to sell.
