Get Rid of Troublesome Tree Stumps

If you love gardening you will know there are many things that can make life very difficult. Rough ground is one, and some gardens are not as level and smooth as you may wish for. Weeds are another; some are very persistent and return time and time again, no matter how often you dig them out or put weed killer on them. Then there’s one of the biggest problems of all: tree stumps.

It may be that, in the past, you have had a tree cut down, or perhaps you have bought a property in which there are tree stumps left behind by previous inhabitants. They not only look ungainly – unless you are fortunate enough to have an attractive one in a position that is advantageous – but they are also a place where insects can make their home and breed, which you really do not want in your garden.

The problem with tree stumps – primarily – is that they are very difficult to get rid of. You can try and do it yourself; many people attempt to burn the stump away, others put chemicals on them that promise to get rid of the stump. These methods don’t work very often, and can leave you with an even uglier tree stump than you had before!

What is the answer? The solution to your problem is to engage the services of a professional tree stump removal expert, who will be able to take on the job for you at surprisingly low rates.

Why Use Experts?

As we have said, removing a tree stump is not an easy job, and it is not recommended that you try it on your own. In fact, it’s very possible that, having tried all the options and finding they do not provide you with the results you need, you have spent more money than you would have if you had brought the experts in first.

Then there’s the danger involved; removing a tree stump may necessarily involve grinding through the roots. This needs to be done using the right tools, and in the right way, and only experts should be permitted to try and perform this task. It’s a time-consuming, difficult and dangerous job that requires a professional and knowledgeable approach, so don’t think that you can do it with the tools in your shed or garage!

The roots of the stump may be several feet down; there’s no point removing the stump and leaving the roots as they will just regrow. The experts will be able to use the right digging tools and cutting devices to get all of the roots out, and remember they can spread a long way from where your stump sits.

You could choose to leave your tree stump where it is, and do nothing. You might be lucky, and it could come in useful as an occasional table! However, it’s best to get rid of it in case it tries to grow some more, so get in touch with the experts now for a free, no obligation quote.
