Tree Stump Removal

Beautify your yard and prevent tripping hazards with tree stump removal

A tree stump can be a real eyesore. While it might be small compared to a full grown tree, stumps are often eye catching and not in a good way. It’s understable that many homeowners want to get rid of old tree stumps, whether as part of the tree removal process or a separate step later.

While you can do this yourself, and it is safer than full blow tree removal, it’s not always the best idea. Most DIY tree stump removal methods take days or even weeks to be effective and can easily go wrong, potentially leading to lawn damage, persistent tree roots, or even injuries. The most effective option is to work with a professional. Using a stump grinder, they can usually remove the stump and the roots in just a few hours.

Why might you want tree stump removal?

  • Aesthetics: Tree stumps can greatly detract from the curb appeal of your home. They tend to make a yard look shabby and unkempt, which is why most homeowners have tree stumps removed before selling. It also takes up valuable yard space that could be home to some beautiful plants or flowers.
  • Health of the nearby flora: Tree stumps are often the perfect home for termites, beetles, and other wood-boring insects. They can also be diseased or infested by fungus. If you leave the stump untreated, the insects, fungi, or disease may spread to nearby plants or even wooden parts of your exterior.
  • Safety: While a tree stump isn’t as dangerous as a fully grown diseased or rotting tree, it can pose some risks. Both the stump and any large roots could pose a tripping hazard, especially for young children, and could even be an issue for lawn care professionals. Finally, the roots from the stump can still grow and might damage nearby sidewalks or even the foundation.
