Professional Stump Grinding Services in Seattle and Surrounding Areas
Trees enhance the beauty of your home’s landscape, so it’s critical that they have proper maintenance and upkeep to display your efforts. If you have trees on your property, it’s inevitable that you’ll have at least one cut down over a certain period of time due to weather-related causes or simply due to their old age. After trees are cut down, what’s left is a stump, which can create safety hazards for your home if they are not removed in a timely manner.
Tree removal services can seem like a hassle, but they don’t have to be when hiring the right professionals. At Seattle Tree Care, you can rely on us to grind and remove your tree stumps to help you have a beautiful yard once more.
The Importance of Stump Grinding
Once the tree cutting process is completed, most homeowners leave the stump in their yard and handle the problem once it creates complications later on. It’s important to remove tree stumps in your yard because they can damage your property. Here are some problems you’ll face if you leave a tree stump intact:
Landscaping Appearance: When you take the time and effort to keep your home’s outer property appearance appealing, you don’t want to devote your attention to certain areas. Leaving stumps after tree removal will not only lessen the appearance, but it can also decrease your home value due to this last step of not being taken care of completely.
Growth of More Trees: If you cut down the tree due to old age or other reasons, leaving the tree stump will provide a number of problems. It’s important to get to the root of the matter and remove the stump because the remaining roots will continue to grow. If this occurs, any landscape walkways or piping systems in its vicinity may be damaged in the new growth process.
Pest Invasion: Stumps become a welcome signal for pests and insects to seek shelter in, which increases the chance for them to infiltrate your home.
Safety Hazard: Despite removing a tree, its stumps still have roots attached. They can become a safety hazard for your household because the roots can continue to grow and pose as tripping hazards. Not only that, but the roots can make it difficult to mow and maintain your yard.
The Stump Removal Process
At Seattle Tree Care, our stump removal process is done as our trained team of experts uses up-to-date equipment to remove the stumps effectively the first time. The first action we take is to grind down the stump using a grinding wheel. Once we grind down the stump as even as we can to ground level, we then will grind down the roots. Then, we will remove the remaining wood shavings pile or you can use it for your own purposes.
Another viable option to remove smaller stumps is by using shovels and a chainsaw. However, it depends on the stump’s size and your situation for our experts to determine which is the best stump removal process to follow through with.
