Why Hire Someone to Remove a Tree Stump?
Aesthetic reasons are usually at the top of the list when removing stumps, and for obvious reasons. Stumps take up lawn space, ground cover, and often prove to be unsightly additions in a well-manicured yard. They can also take up precious yard space that could be used to place furniture or a flower bed, for example. Those wanting a clean and organized lawn will want their yard free of stumps.
Stumps also can be a safety hazard. Stumps near driveways and roads can be dangerous to those backing out or maneuvering a car, especially if in a blind spot. If your yard features tall grasses or is overgrown, a stump can be hidden beneath the growth and become a tripping hazard. Similarly, hidden stumps can damage lawn care equipment if they’re run over, such as destroying mower blades.
Many who try at-home methods of stump removal like using chemicals often find frustrating results. In the case of chemicals, it can take a long time for the stump to rot, and trying to locate, dig out, and remove all the roots and the stump on your own can be next to impossible. Hiring a professional ensures the stump is quickly, safely, and professionally moved.
New growth can also sprout from a dead stump. Stumps provide a great flat area for saplings and seedlings to raise up, costing more to continually remove or use chemicals to kill new growth and prevent new growth from sprouting up. If not taken care of, these little saplings can quickly turn into viable and full-fledged trees.
How Can Hamlin Tree Care Help?
With almost a decade of providing tree care needs in the greater Austin area and central Texas, Hamlin Tree care and their team of ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) certified arborists can properly remove stumps from your property. With a knowledge of native species and other common trees found in the area, they will know exactly what to do to your stumps. Common central Texas trees tend to be larger species, like Live Oaks, Spanish Oaks, Cedar Elms, and Texas Ash, and the stumps they leave behind can be cumbersome and difficult to remove without professional help. With specialized equipment like stump grinders and experts who have years of experience, Hamlin Tree Care can remove stumps from your landscaping fast and efficiently.
Hamlin can remove just one stump or an entire property full of stumps, depending on your needs. Even for one stump, it’s great to get a professional opinion, as do it yourself attempts may prove unsuccessful and can even cause injury. Depending on where you live, it may also be hard to dispose of the stump once it’s removed, as some trash and disposal services may not accept stumps for pickup.
Reasons to Remove Tree Stumps
Whether you own a commercial property or if you are a homeowner, you may be forced to deal with tree stumps on your property sometime or another. You may wonder if you should remove the stumps or if it is better to simply leave them on your property. As others will tell you, some of the most common reasons why property owners turn to professional companies like Hamlin Tree Care, Inc are:
- Tree stumps are unsightly – No property owner wants to look out across their lawn and see tree stumps across their landscape. Eventually, stumps will grow weeds and other plants, and will become even bigger eyesores.
- Tree stumps take up valuable space – A tree stump takes up significant space that could be cleared out to give you wider lawn space for other purposes.
- Stumps can be hazardous – While some stumps are easy to spot, others may become covered by weeds, grass, and other plants. These concealed stumps can become serious tripping hazards for anyone who is on the property.
Because stumps serve no real purpose, visually or otherwise, most property owners would prefer to remove them as soon as possible. It is a good idea to hire a professional team to remove the stump safely and efficiently to ensure that it is done right.
