Removal is beneficial for more than just aesthetic reasons.
Below is a list of reasons why stump removal is beneficial.
A new tree can be planted
For prevention of termites, insects, roaches, ants and snakes
Makes mowing the lawn easier
Falls and accidents are prevented
Existing vegetation can grow again
Grinding those stumps down below the surface of the soil allows for effective yard repair and replanting of the area. Stump grinding is much less expensive than stump removal processes and it eliminates the disturbance of the surrounding lawn area. The mulch created by the grinding process can be recycled by using it on your flower beds to control weeds and maintain soil moisture.
