Stump Grinding for Decaying Tree Stumps in the Melbourne Area
Tree stump removal is a very important part of tree and landscape maintenance. Stumps can take years to decay, and during that time can cause potential health, safety, and other types of risks. It is always a good idea to have an old stump removed, instead of leaving it in place to rot over the years.
When stumps are left, they receive water and sunlight which will cause little trees to sprout from the existing roots and tree trunk. These sprouts will never grow into a big strong tree, and can just grow enough to cause damage or issues. It is best to get the stump removed before these sprouts begin to grow.
Liability risks are also another problem, because tree stumps are not always easy to see and can easily be tripped over causing people to be harmed. These types of falls can even lead to lawsuits, so it is best to get those stumps removed as soon as the tree falls or is taken down. Lawn equipment can also be damaged by hitting tree roots coming off the tree stump that is left. The blades can be bent, along with pieces of bark being slung by the lawnmower causing damage to the people or structures that flying debris hits.
Rodents often take shelter in decaying tree stumps. These rodents can carry disease, and can also go into your home. Remove these old stumps before the creatures move into them, because if you take away their home they will be looking for a new residence.
