But our tree stump is charming…

You may have a tree stump that you’ve dressed up and decorated with plants or garden ornaments, but tree stumps can create problems that are easily overlooked.

Why you should remove that tree stump

Unsightly appearance to your curb appeal
Stumps can negatively affect the overall appearance of your curb appeal and diminish your property value. If you have your home on the market, potential buyers might perceive that the property wasn’t maintained or cared for properly. And if little green shoots are growing from your tree stump, then double whammy. If you took the time and effort to remove the tree for whatever reason, it’s a better idea to just remove the entire tree, stump included.

New Growth
New growth of trees is nature’s way of caring for a tree, even a stump. So it will not be a surprise when tiny little green shoots appear and then you have a stump that has grown a tangled mess of upward or sideward growth. These shoots promote the continuation of root growth of the tree, which can cause damage to nearby trees, shrubs, and bushes. Since roots grow in diameter over time, the concern of disruption and damage to nearby surfaces and other green life is even greater.

Protect your family and friends
Hosting a family gathering in your backyard is great, and its even greater to see your children running and playing in the backyard. In their excitement, they will most likely not remember to change direction and trip or fall over an exposed tree stump. Protect the littles by removing that stump.

Mowing can turn into a nightmare
Being in the Midwest, mowing is an essential chore that all home dwellers must do. Mowing around a stump, making sure that all the grass growing next to it, can dull your blades, chew through a weed-eater cord, and creates extra manual labor that is really unnecessary. Save yourself the headache and trouble and just go ahead and remove that stump.

Because tree stumps are the result of a traumatic experience for the tree, it becomes a potential hotbed for infestation and disease. Carpenter ants, bees, hornets, wasps, and termites love stumps. And once they invade the stump, they are surely going to move on to the nearest shrub, tree, or even your house which can cause a downward spiral to your beautiful home and landscaping efforts.

Our solution is to use a stump grinder to remove the stump. Stump grinding is different than stump removal.  Instead of pulling out the roots, which may cause damage to the surrounding area and leaves a large gap in your yard, stump grinding is faster, easier, and more affordable. The chips created by the grinding process can decompose in the ground and can help fill the area where the root system once existed. A stump grinder chews away at the stump wood that’s left after a tree has been cut down. Stump grinders use a powerful, rotating blade that rips into the wood as it turns. The blade’s teeth cut the stump wood into small pieces. Tidd Tree experts guide the blade over the entire stump as the blade reduces the wood to chips, and takes the stump down to well below ground level. When all is said and done, we remove the debris for you. Job complete!
