Reclaim Your Green Space With Stump Grinding

An unsightly stump can mar an otherwise perfect lawn, detracting from your existing landscaping.

Why Don’t Stumps Get Removed With Trees?

When trees are removed, the stump remains behind. The safest way to fell a tree is typically to cut it off aboveground, leaving a small amount of the trunk sticking out of the ground. What you don’t see is the often complex root system belowground which makes it difficult, if not impossible to get rid of the whole tree all at once in a safe way. Plus, some root systems are extensive and would require major excavation of your yard to get rid of them. Even our recommended process of stump removal, stump grinding in Kansas City, MO, does not eliminate the whole root system.

The Importance of Stump Grinding

Stump grinding in Kansas City has many benefits. We suggest you get your stumps ground right after tree removal because if you leave them, you may experience some of the problems mentioned below.

Enhance Property Appearance

Stumps become unsightly, especially as they decompose. They can lower property values and are often the sign of an unkempt yard to an external eye. This is especially true if you have multiple stumps throughout your property. The longer you wait, the worse this problem will become.

Speed Natural Decomposition

A stump will naturally decompose over time and turn back into nutrients for the earth below. However, stump grinding in Kansas City, MO hurries this process. When a stump is ground, it is turned into wood chips or mulch that then fills the hole where the stump used to be. This still returns nutrients to the soil and makes the location usable for new plant beds or other small plants with shallow root systems.

Reduce Chance of Pests

It can be disappointing to lose a tree in your yard, especially if you’ve grown attached to it over time. If the stump remains, it is simply a reminder of that loss, rather than an opportunity for new growth.

Eliminate Potential Hazards

A stump gets in the way of landscaping tasks like lawn mowing, and if you forget that it’s there, it can be dangerous. Plus, if you have children who play in your yard or regularly host gatherings there, the stump can be a dangerous trip hazard.
