5 Reasons to Get That Ugly Stump Removed


Homeowners have no choice but to cut down trees that are diseased or severely damaged. What remains after the entire tree removal procedure is an ugly stump. Some owners prefer leaving the stump intact as a reminder of the tree that once stood there. However, there are many compelling reasons why you should remove a tree stump. Let us take a look at them.

Why Should You Remove a Tree Stump

1. Aesthetic Appeal

Trees add beauty and value to your home. Tree stumps, on the other hand, become an eyesore. They don’t in any way improve the look of your landscape. So if you’re someone who’s particular about having a beautiful looking garden, don’t leave an ugly stump lying around on your property.

2. It Frees Up Space

Once you remove the stump, you can play around with different ideas. You could re-landscape the area and plant a few shrubs. You could install a water feature, create a sitting area or even build a lily pond. The options are endless.

3. They Cause Accidents

Tree stumps come in the way of children, adults and guests. People tend to stumble over them and injure themselves. So if you have little children running around in your garden or visitors coming over, get rid of the stump as soon as possible.

4. Shoots

The stumps often support new plant growth. You might see shoots sprouting around the stump in some locations. New shoots spring up because the roots of the previously removed tree are still intact. New shoots steal nutrients from surrounding plants. If you’d like to get rid of them permanently, you’ll have to consider removing the stump. If you don’t, new shoots will keep sprouting no matter how many times you remove them.

5. They become an Obstacle

Tree stumps come in the way of your lawn mower. Since it’s a challenge to maneuver the mower around the stump, you have another good reason to get rid of the stump.

6. They Infect Other Trees

If you have had to cut down the tree because of an infection, discarding the tree alone won’t solve the problem. The stump will continue to rot and attract bugs and insects. If you want to completely get rid of pests and fungal infections from your landscape, hire a professional to remove the stump along with the roots.
