After going through the trouble to have a tree removed, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to leave the stump sitting there. Some stumps are easier to remove than others and therefore different techniques can be applied. A few of the top reasons to remove stumps from your yard include:
- They are Eyesores – No one likes gazing out into the yard and seeing old stumps dotting the landscape. They look even worse when weeds and other plants start growing on them, which inevitably happens over time.
- They Take Up Valuable Space – Most people want the widest, clearest yards possible, and stumps really get in the way.
- They are Hazardous – 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.
