If you are a residential property owner with trees on your land, there may come a time when you need a tree removed from your property. The need for tree removal can be caused by a variety of circumstances, such as trees dying because of the recent drought, root systems damaging nearby structures, or simply to provide a clear line of sight or unobstructed view of neighboring landmarks. Whatever the reason, it is important to note that tree removal does not just mean chopping down the tree and limbs. Once the tree is removed, there is a tree stump left behind that must be addressed.
Some property owners might opt to leave the tree stump as is, but a tree stump can cause many more problems for the property owner down the road. When a tree stump is left behind after tree removal, it becomes a major liability as you or others could easily be injured by the stump and surrounding large roots. This could lead to large medical expenses to cover. In addition, a large tree stump can decrease your property’s aesthetic value and could even decrease your property value in the event you ever put your property on the real estate market.
Also, many Homeowners Associations will often frown upon unsightly tree stumps if they believe they hurt the look and value of the neighborhood. The property owner may face numerous letters from their HOA and possible fines for leaving tree stumps on their property. Finally, a tree stump left on your property means you are unable to do anything else with that section of land. If the tree stump is properly removed, you can repurpose that section of land for other landscaping or recreational uses.
If you do need stump grinding after a tree removal, this is the time when you need to call in professionals, even if you handled the tree removal yourself. Generally, tree removal is a straightforward process because you are able to clearly see exactly how many limbs need to be cut and the type of chainsaws and safety equipment needed to safely remove the tree. However, tree stump grinding is a riskier endeavor, one that is best handled by professionals with the expertise, specialized equipment and safety procedures needed to do the job right. Tree stumps can have expansive root systems that make it extremely difficult to remove the stump, even with heavy-duty trucks and other vehicles. Many videos and photos can attest to the difficulty and dangers involved when property owners try to remove tree stumps on their own.
