Sometimes it’s necessary to remove a tree. As bad as it sounds from a climate change person’s perspective, a tree that obstructs the road or your lawn or a tree that reaches the electricity lines can do more harm than good.
Needless to say, the only solution for dead, ill, and dangerous trees is to cut them. However, most people neglect the stump that gets left behind. Yes, the tree is gone, but the stump can still remain as an obstruction.
Importance of Removing Stumps
There are four main reasons why you should get rid of tree stumps.
1) Risk of accidents
Even if tree stumps are visible, they still pose a danger to people who are careless. There are times when you can easily trip over them or that someone falls on it instead of the grass. When this happens and someone gets injured, you might have to answer to personal liability charges. Of course, no one wants that.
2) Continued growth
For as long as the roots are still there, the tree can still grow even if you chop off the trunk. There are cases when other plants grow on the base of the tree if not for the tree itself. There are also times when the roots grow deep into the ground, damaging your pipes. This can pose a bigger problem to your sewage system.
3) Protection from decay and pests
Another reason why you need to remove the tree stump is the growth of decay and pests. Since this is an exposed piece of wood, termites and insects can see this as a nesting place where they further infect the stump and anything around it. If the tree stump is left untreated or removed, you might have a growing population of pests without even noticing it.
Tree stumps signify dead trees or chopped trees. If you are planning to sell your home, it is best to remove the stumps to make your lawn more presentable. If you have more than one tree stump, then this is definitely an eyesore that can ruin your chances of selling your home.
