Forest Stump Tree Removal
Forest Stump Tree Removal — the Best Course of ActionAlthough trees can be an asset to any property and have a long life if they’re looked after properly, they do sometimes have to be removed. They can be blown down in storms or may need to be cut down if they’re diseased, become unsafe or an obstruction, or have simply got too big for where they are. Whenever and however a tree is removed, you’ll generally be left with the stump sticking up. This can be left in the ground or can be removed, although forest tree stump removal is almost always the best option.
Why and How to Remove Tree Stumps in the ForrestWhen a tree is removed or blown down, leaving the stump in the ground can cause several problems:
- a protruding stump can be a trip hazard for people and can also cause damage to machinery
- growth may continue from the remaining part of the tree and so may need to be cut down again in the future
- the stump may become home to several pests, including rats, beetles, termites and ants
- a rotting stump will encourage fungi growth and diseases
- broken and rotting stumps can become an eyesore.
- Stump removal can involve the stump being forcibly extracted from the ground or the use of fire to burn it or chemicals to poison it. Although these will all prevent regrowth and infestation by pests, they can have a detrimental effect on the surrounding area. Physically pulling out the stump and the root system can cause great disturbance to other nearby pants, especially if there’s an extensive root system, while fire and chemicals can badly affect other plants and wildlife.
- Stump grinding that actually grinds down the stump to at least ground level and usually below so that nothing remains showing above the soil. We use a machine that has a powerful blade with tungsten teeth that reduce the stump to useful mulch that can be beneficially incorporated into the soil. Since the tree roots are deprived of their life source, they eventually rot way without causing any harm to the environment.
