Trees are beautiful and important property assets, but unfortunately they can succumb to various ailments, such as disease, drought, wind damage or lightning strikes. When trees become severely damaged or die, prompt tree removal is needed. Too often, property owners just have the main part of the tree removed, leaving behind the tree stump. In today’s blog post, we’re going to discuss why property owners should always have tree stumps removed from a residential property.
It’s Not A Pretty Sight
First, property owners should recognize that tree stumps are eyesores for the property. They are unsightly and are often located prominently in yards or residential neighborhoods. Although a damaged or dead tree can hurt property values, an unattractive tree stump can also decrease property values, particularly if the property is listed on the real estate market. Potential buyers will quickly steer clear of any property with such a prominent outdoor eyesore.
Tree Stumps Are A Lurking Danger
Secondly, tree stumps will decay over time, creating a potentially dangerous situation for owners and their family. Children can easily injure themselves while playing on or near stumps, and they can cause falls among the elderly. Tree stumps, especially from diseased trees, will become unstable and can also easily attract small vermin and invasive insects that can destroy surrounding turf, trees and landscape gardens.
Transform The Space Into Something New
Finally, tree stumps prevent residential property owners from being able to reuse that specific section of property. Instead of an unsightly and potentially dangerous tree stump, property owners could instead add seasonal flowers or plants, or have ornamental stonework installed in its place to preserve and even increase property values and curb appeal.
