Unwanted stumps in your yard are an eyesore. The remnants of once-living trees serve as ugly tombstones. They take up space, can be a breeding ground for insects, and don’t contribute to your yard’s overall beauty. Furthermore, there is a chance that stumps can harm other living plants nearby. To remove that stump once and for all, grinding it up is the way to go.


When to Consider Tree Stump Removal Service

Some small stumps can be easily removed with a little shovel work and elbow grease, but most refuse to budge. It usually takes hours to do it, and there are many ways to carry out the job. You can burn it, rot it with chemicals, or hack at it with an ax and shovel. If you feel daunted by the level of labor you have to put in, you might just ignore it. While you can carry out the task yourself, it can cost you a lot of time and effort, especially when multiple stumps are in your yard.

If you happen to be a busy person with a schedule that’s packed seven days a week, the exhausting task of removing a big stump may not exactly be on the top of your priority list! Calling expert stump removers such as the Aerial Tree Services team to do the job takes the stress and worry out of this task. We have the machinery to carry out the job at a reasonable cost.

What Is the Cost of Getting a Stump Removed?

It really depends on how much work needs to be done. It often costs less than when you handle the job on your own. The job can take hours, especially when you are doing it by yourself with limited tools.

Hiring a professional stump remover contractor means taking advantage of our heavy machinery to lessen the amount of time spent laboring over the stump. Furthermore, you do not have to rent your own grinder, which can range up to hundreds of dollars, and risk any grinder malfunctions you have to pay for while using it. Not to mention, you eliminate the risk of personal injury.

How Difficult Is it to Remove or Grind a Stump?

Getting rid of a stump is relatively more difficult and time-consuming compared to cutting trees down. Roots that are stuck a few feet down may need to be dug up for grinding. Different tree species also produce different root sizes, and networks of roots can span several feet.

Grinding the stump requires some experience and mastery with the equipment in order to use it to its fullest potential. This also means handling the risk for possible injuries related to the use of power tools.

Removing Stumps Can Pose a Health Risk to Some Individuals

Stump grinding and removal unearths microscopic debris. Some of this particulate matter can enter a person’s lungs and cause an allergic reaction. Furthermore, Clostridium tetani are found in all soils, and an open wound could cause tetanus infections. Other than incurring more costs for purchasing safety gears, you also have to deal with possible health risks. It is highly recommended to call our professional tree stump removal services and the surrounding area to make your home free from health hazards.

What Happens if You Just Ignore a Stump in Your Yard?

If all goes well, nothing. You are just left with an unsightly stump. But a stump could re-grow into a tree from surviving portions, which will make it harder to remove the stump in the future.

A stump could also rot and encourage fungal growth during decomposition. Fungal growth can spread to other nearby plants in the garden or promote the release of spores that can travel in the air and cause respiratory problems.

Insects could make use of the stump as a shelter and breed. This can lead to bigger problems, including a an infestation of termites or carpenter ants which could spread to your house.

The reality is not all stumps will cause severe problems in your yard. Most homeowners just want to free up some space for more room to grow flowering plants or to install garden ornaments to add value to the property.

Our stump grinding services relieve you from the variety of headaches that stumps could cause in your yard. The level of effort one needs to exert when removing a single stump differs with each case. But most of the time, machinery is required to accomplish the task in a short time. Leaving it to the pros removes the hidden costs of dealing with the stump yourself.
