As part of your spring maintenance and spring tree care, you might have removed a tree from your property. If you are dealing with an old tree stump (or a new tree stump, for that matter), it’s always a good idea to remove them from your property. Why is proper tree stump removal so important?
Stumps Cause Accidents
Think of how many times you trip over a cable or cord in your home, even though you know it’s there. Now, think of how many times you and your family will trip over the tree stump in your yard, even though you know it’s there. Old stumps can cause children and adults to trip and get majorly injured, depending on its size and how fast they were moving. Even worse, you can totally ruin your lawnmower if you aren’t paying attention and don’t see the tree stump, running over it and wrecking your blade.
Stumps Aren’t Attractive
Even if you have gorgeous landscaping, beautiful flowers planted by your mailbox, and attractively-trimmed bushes against your porch, a huge tree stump in your yard ruins everything else! Tree stumps are visually ugly and detract from the beauty of the rest of your yard. Even if you aren’t planning to put your home on the market anytime soon, remove the tree stump from your yard to boost your curb appeal back up where it belongs.
Stumps Attract Pests
Tree stumps are the perfect home for many different pests that you definitely don’t want in your yard. Wood-loving termites might take up residence in your tree stump and then discover your delicious-looking home just a few feet away. Other insects, like carpenter bees, aren’t outright harmful but will definitely get annoying during summer picnics.
