Stump Removal Red Deer

Red Deer Stump Removal Service

Unsure about what to do with a tree stump? No need to fret, there are many options available! Once a tree has been removed, a stump may be left behind, leading to a decision on whether or not to remove it. Leaving the stump as is may seem like a viable option, but it can become a breeding ground for pests and diseases that can harm nearby plants and trees.   

Additionally, a tree stump can detract from the appearance of a well-maintained lawn and create obstacles during lawn mowing. Caution must be taken while mowing around the stump as the roots could damage the mower or pose a danger to your safety. Thus, it is recommended to completely eliminate the stump to avoid these problems. 

Keep in mind that even when a tree is removed, there is often a network of roots still attached to the stump, varying in size from 4 to 12 feet depending on the tree's age. Planting anything near these roots can be difficult. To fully remove the stump and its roots, excavation is necessary.   The previous root system is removed to create space for new plantation, ensuring no hindrance from the old roots during replanting. This may result in an empty space that needs to be filled later.  

Stump Grinding for Red Deer Alberta

If you need to remove a tree stump, there's a simpler way than digging it out completely with its roots. Grinding it down is a more convenient method, which uses specialized equipment to break the stump into chips that can be used as garden decorations. But, it's important to note that the roots will still be present and could be a tripping hazard as they rot away. It may take up to a decade for the roots to fully decompose, making it challenging to replant in the same area.

Choosing the most suitable stump removal technique may rely on what you intend to do with the area after the removal process. If you plan to grow something in the space, it may be more advantageous to eliminate the stump and its roots entirely.
