From an aesthetic perspective, tree stumps are not nice to look at. In a landscaped space, they draw attention away from all the effort and investment poured into it. If you are planning a landscaping project in the future, grinding down or removing your stump can make your life easier. It won’t hamper your dream design, nor will it get in the way of the physical work.
Do you have young children? Or perhaps young family members who visit your Cobham home at weekends? If you don’t remove or grind down the stump in your garden, it poses a safety hazard to them. When playing, children tend to run around without much care for danger. They could easily trip over the stump and suffer a nasty fall.
Are you familiar with ‘suckering’? Trees are living things, so they will take action to survive in the event of an injury. Even after felling, a tree can grow suckers from, or around, the stump. If left unchecked, these new sprouts can grow into small trees. So while you removed one tree, you may run the risk of growing several more.
Stump grinding and removal is one of the most effective ways to avoid suckering in your Cobham garden and unnecessary tree work and tree surgery in the future. The quicker any suckers are removed, the easier they are to deal with.
If you have lived with a tree stump for years already, you probably don’t need us to tell you about how they make life more difficult. For example, the already demanding task of mowing the grass becomes even more taxing when you have to work around a stump. You also have to watch where you mow in case you damage the blades.
Stumps take a significant amount of time to fully rot away, proving to be highly attractive to ants, beetles and other insects. Needless to say, these bugs can eventually end up in your Cobham home if you’re not careful, making stump removal and stump grinding highly valuable to the condition of your garden and your home as a whole.
