Cutting down a tree is often easier than removing the stump that remains mainly because of the roots beneath the surface of the ground. Also be aware that when you ask an arborist for the cost of felling a tree they do not always include the cost of stump being removed. It is also why many people have old stumps in their yards.
Stump removal is not easy, but it is achievable. We are experienced in removing stumps and by the time we have completed the task it will not be obvious that there was ever a tree in place. We have the machinery to remove any stump in your garden by grinding the wood into small pieces, which in itself can be used a a mulch if you wish or we can take it away and redistribute it to a member of the public for free. We hold a database of people in your area who have requested this in the past. We are an environmental company and not much goes to waste.
Tree stumps can be made a part of a feature in the garden. Tree sculpting is an art that unfortunately we do not practice but there are those who have the skill to achieve works of art from a tree stump.
After paying for the tree to be removed, it does not make a lot of sense to leave the stump sitting there. A few of the main reasons to remove stumps from your garden are:
They are Eyesores – No one likes gazing out into the yard and seeing old stumps dotting the landscape.
They Take Up Valuable Space – Most people want clear gardens and stumps do get in the way.
They can be a hazard – Some stumps are obvious, but others get camouflaged by grass, weeds and other plants and become tripping hazards. Nothing is worse than stubbing your toe on an old tree stump.
