Why Stump Removal is Important

Once a tree has been removed or cut down, it’s important that the stump is not left in your yard. Professional stump removal helps to prevent several potential issues from occurring – here’s how:

  • When a stump is left in your yard, it can present a tripping hazard and cause serious injury. Lawnmowers can also sustain damage if they run into the stump.


Stumps left in your yard can begin sprouting new trees and other vegetation. Removing the stump will prevent unwanted growth.

Termites, ants, and other bugs love rotting tree stumps. When a stump is infested, you can see an increase in pests in and around your home as well.

Stumps that are not removed invite mushroom, fungus, and disease. When you have an unwell stump in your yard, it can spread disease easily to other vegetation and trees.

When a Tree Requires Removal

Most homeowners prefer to trim and prune trees instead of removing them. Unfortunately, when a tree is unhealthy or growing improperly it can call for professional removal. Recognizing the signs that a tree isn’t doing well is essential to preventing a possibly hazardous situation. Here’s what to look for:

  • Bark that is peeling, cracking, or chipping
  • A lot of dead, snapped, or hanging branches in the top part of the tree
  • Increased mushroom and fungal growth at the base of the tree
  • The absence of budding
  • Large holes or cavities in the trunk

Scorched looking leaves (brown and yellow lines)

How Tree Emergencies Can Affect Your Home

Unfortunately, sometimes problems and damage to trees can affect your home or property. It’s best to conduct regular and thorough maintenance to ensure avoidance of most problems. 

Some common tree emergencies that can affect your home are:

  • Roots can grow through your sewer lines or water pipes, causing flooding and damage.
  • Unstable trees and branches can fall on your home as a result of disease or damage from wind and storms.
  • Power lines can be damaged due to falling trees and branches.
