Stump Removal Geelong
So you've either cut down the tree or had someone else cut it down for you, but now you're left with a stubborn, deep and difficult to remove tree stump. You might try hacking away at it with an axe, or try and pull it up in one piece, but the roots go down so deep and there's a good chance you'll injure yourself, that's where we come in. Removing a tree stump can be near impossible if you don't have the right tools, experience and know how. You also want to make sure you do it right and get the whole thing removed as mother nature has made them quite resilient and some roots can even start to sprout a new tree to replace the one your just removed!
Why Should You Remove Your Stump?
If you're still on the fence about whether to leave a stump in or get it removed, here are a few things to consider.
- Stumps are very easy to trip on, especially for older people or kid, and could cause someone you love to injure themselves.
- Stumps can attract pests, such as termites, ants and cockroaches.
- Tree stumps can attract fungi which can spread to nearby trees.
- They can get in the way of your gardening or landscaping plans.
Removing A Stump Is Pretty Quick & Easy
When you have the proper tools and you essentially know what you are doing removing a stump is not something that is going to be overly complex. Most of the times we are able to get the job done fairly quickly. If you are thinking if it so easy why don’t I just do it myself, we may have a couple of suggestions for you. We are not saying that you can’t do it on your own, but if you have never completed this process it is going to take a little more time and it may have some unwanted backlash that we actively try to avoid.
Consequences That We Want To Avoid
Basically what we are going to try to avoid is to have a huge hole leftover in the place where the stump stood. The main reason why you would want to remove a stump is that you want to put something in its place or because you want to have a flat lawn and not have to worry about stumps. So it would not make sense to have a huge hole left behind that is going to be in a lot of ways more of a problem than the original stump was. Our stump removal process contemplates all of this.
It's Not Growing Back
It's not common to see a tree stump that will end up growing all the way back to full strength. That is because the damage that was done when the top part was removed & is usually going to be too great for the tree to be able to really flourish afterward. We know that a lot of times people will keep stumps around with the hope that they will one day grow back to full size. It can happen and has happened but isnt overly common. This is probably not going to happen so waiting for that could be in vain.
Don’t Remove It Grind It
If you don’t want to remove the stump, but you want it to fit better into the idea that you have for your home the best thing that you can do is to grind the stump.
