If you have any specific questions or concerns, or if you are already convinced and want to schedule an appointment, then call us today. Our friendly representatives are on standby to take your call.
Improve the Appearance of Your Property
No one likes tree stumps littering their property. These eyesores make the property look unkempt and they take up valuable real estate that could be used for more productive, or attractive, things. You can bet that prospective home buyers will also notice the tree stumps and take-off points. If you want to improve the appearance and value of your property, then get rid of those pesky tree stumps.
Stop Stump Sprouting
If you are thinking that the tree stump will decay on its own in a short period of time, then think again. If the tree was not properly removed, then the trunk might still be alive and could re-sprout. Even if the tree was professionally and appropriately removed, it can take up to twenty years for the tree stump and roots to fully decay.
Avoid Injuries, Accidents, and Lawsuits
Tree stumps are absolutely unattractive, but they are also easy to overlook, making them serious trip hazards. If you have children playing in the yard, they can trip on or, worse, trip ONTO tree stumps. Guests and visitors could also trip on the tree stump and set you up for a lawsuit. Tree stumps can also damage vehicles and lawn care equipment all the while making gardening and lawncare unnecessarily challenging.
Prevent Disease and Pest Infestations
Tree stumps are heaven for pests such as termites and carpenter ants. They are also prime real estate for mold and other fungi. If the tree died and was removed because of a disease, you can place a fair bet that the stump is also afflicted. If you want to protect your household, trees, pets, and building from these pests and diseases, then we recommend you get rid of that tree stump as soon as possible.
How Does Stump Grinding Work?
Stump grinding is nothing complicated. It requires a stump grinder which pulverizes the stump into woodchips and sawdust. Grand Rapids Stump Grinding can grind tree stumps down to as shallow as an inch under the surface and as deep as 18 inches underground. We can also grind surface roots, but stump grinding does NOT address deep roots. If you want to plant in the area, then we recommend a stump removal. Grand Rapids Stump Grinding DOES offer stump removal services. Call us today to consult with a friendly representative. We are happy to address any specific questions or concerns.
