Reasons to remove tree stumps in Utah

If you have second thoughts about eliminating stumps, here are some advantages for carrying out this task.
  • Tree growth: Leaving the stump unattended will generate the growth of other smaller trees around it. These trees will then prove costly to eliminate if left for too long. Also, the trees strip other surrounding plants of their nutrients, causing the plants to wither or die.
  • Safety: It is important to note that these stumps are hazardous and accidents can occur when children or others stumble over them. Stumps can also damage certain appliances, such as the mower.
  • Pests and diseases: Insects like carpenter ants, beetles, and termites are attracted to decaying tree stumps, and these pests can pose an environmental concern for other trees and your home. In addition, the untreated stump may harbor diseases or fungi, and this puts other plants at risk.
  • Aesthetics: While a tree is a perfect enhancement for your home, a stump creates the opposite effect. Tree stumps with weeds or molds growing on or near them can be an eyesore.

Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is an intricate process that excavates the stump of the tree without removing the root. In this situation, a stump grinder is employed to mechanically grind out the stump, leaving fine sawdust as a residue. The advantage of tree stump grinding is that the stump is ground down to your desired height, typically 6 inches underground. Since the stump is ground, it eventually mixes with the soil. This levels the ground and eliminates the need for extra filling. If, however, the stump is infected with honey fungus, which can kill the roots of perennial plants, it is advisable to dispose of the mulch and the residual sawdust.

Preferred Method

The process of stump grinding is preferred for many reasons. It is far easier to execute and uses efficient tools to get the job done. Unlike stump removal, which leaves the environment in a messy state, stump grinding provides a greater level of neatness and environmental friendliness.

Stump Grinding Costs

Factors such as the diameter of the stump, age of the tree, soil type, root system, and number of stumps determine the cost of stump excavation. Some tree removal services stipulate a minimum service charge for the process and often, there is a discount on additional stumps.

For stump grinding, the average price range is from $75 to $400 per stump. The price can exceed $600 if it takes more time to grind the stump due to the topology of the area, age of the tree, or root system.

Roots

Tree stump removal removes the root as well as the stump. This is what creates the large hole after removal. However, with tree stump grinding, the stump is ground, and the root is left to decay. It is not unusual to see sprouts from the root with stump grinding, especially if the roots take time to disintegrate.

Possibility of Replanting
If the process of replanting a tree on that spot appeals to you, the best option is to remove the stump and root completely. Tree removal clears the surface and ensures that subsequent plantings are free to grow.

Chemicals

Stump grinding requires no chemicals to decompose the stump. A high concentration of potassium nitrate can be used to soften the soil.
