Why stump grinding? With your Denver tree expert


Something to consider as the ground begins to thaw, ridding your yard of fallen storm damaged trees or old stumps. Spring cleaning is right around the corner and removing dead or decaying debris from your space fits the bill! Ridding of these allows for new growth of a healthy kind. Many issues can arise from stumps that are left too long and we want to remedy those problems before they even arise!

The most common problem we come across is an infestation of some insect. When stumps are left alone, the elements take their toll as well as the rest of mother nature. The decaying wood makes perfect food and shelter for ants and termites alike. The already decomposing material makes for easy eats and burrowing. A major issue that can arise from an infestation of one space is the potential for spread. You do not want carpenter ants or termites taking up residence anywhere in your yard, they may eventually work their way to your healthy foliage. Though most species prefer the already dead wood, there are a few which will target your living plants and trees. Before you have to deal with these pests, reach out to us to get that stump gone! 

Another issue with leaving old stumps is they are a hazard. One more unnecessary obstacle to maneuver around during mowing or simply taking up space where the kids could play. Removing these obstacles from your yard reduces the likelihood of injury as well as minimizes the possibility of unwanted fungal or infectious growth in or on your stump. Dealing with fungus and infection is important for a similar reason to that of dealing with insect infestations, to mitigate spread. Before your stump blooms let's get it removed!

Lastly, a small but still prominent issue of leaving stumps in the ground, you have nowhere to plant a new tree!
