It may seem like a quaint idea to leave tree stumps scattered around your garden. Maybe it’s for aesthetics or to save time and money. Whatever the reason, leaving /stump-grindings/ behind can pose risks to you and your family. At Lamb Tree Care, we know that it’s important to remove them, and here are our top four reasons why.
Makes It Convenient to Make Changes in Your Garden
Leaving a tree stump behind can hinder your plans to build that pool or gazebo outback. It creates an unnecessary obstacle and is an additional roadblock in your building plans. Waiting to have it removed may seem like a good idea, but in the long run, it’s better to get rid of tree stumps right away so that you’re free to plan your garden as you please.
Prevents Pests and Diseases
Like with all living things, tree stumps attract unwanted pests and diseases as they decay. You may find poisonous mushrooms sprout around or in the stump. Mold builds up and can spread spores throughout your garden. Sometimes boring beetles make their home in old tree stumps and easily move onto other plants in your garden when the stump runs out of food. You might even find yourself with a tick or termite infestation. Find a tree removal specialist like us if you notice any of these problems in your garden.
Helps with Landscaping
Maintaining that perfect lawn is almost impossible with tree stumps everywhere. Maintenance teams at parks or office blocks will need more time to finish landscaping work. If they aren’t part of your property’s clean-cut design, the tree stumps will be an eyesore to you. They can also create offshoots that draw nutrients away from other plants in the vicinity. These shoots are difficult to remove and require professional tree felling services, like the ones we offer at Lamb Tree Care.
Helps with Safety
Old tree stumps eventually dry out completely and become fire hazards. They also camouflage well in long grass so people can trip over and badly injure themselves. Remove all your tree stumps, or at least have them maintained regularly to prevent any dangers.
