Why Remove a Tree Stump?
Aside from aesthetic reasons for removing a tree stump, there are other very important reasons to get rid of a tree stump on your property.
- Tree Stumps can be the source of infestations. Termites, beetles, carpenter ants, and other wood-boring insects love tree stumps. Insect infestations often start at the tree stumps, which will almost certainly spread to other healthy trees and shrubs in your yard and even to the wood in your home.
- Tree Stumps can grow fungi. Tree stumps are a perfect environment for fungi and mold to grow. The infected wood can pose a risk to you, your children, or your pets. Don’t take any risks and make sure you get rid of your tree stump
- Tree Stumps can be dangerous. The presence of a tree stump in your yard can make playtime dangerous for children and visitors. Tree trunks and their roots can trip someone in your yard, potentially causing serious injuries

Frequently Asked Questions.
Apart from not looking great, having an old tree stump on your property can cause other costly problems down the line. Tree stumps represent a hazard for children playing in the yard as they can trip over or onto it and injure themselves. Tree stumps also can become infested with ants, termites, or other pests which can then move into your home or business. Tree stumps can also harbour mold which can spread to your house as well. Don’t take any risks – make sure to get rid of the tree stump on your property.
Generally speaking, we use our stump grinders to grind stumps and roots between four an six inches beneath the surface. This amount of grinding is ideal as the stump is no longer visible and you can plant grass over it. If needed, we can grind deeper to take care of larger tree roots.

After a tree stump is ground, the roots will naturally decay. This process is rather lengthy, and can take up to 10 years for the roots to fully break down. If you have tree roots which break the surface of your lawn we can grind those down just like your tree trunk.
It is a myth that stump grinding attracts termites, but the opposite is true. Tree stumps are a source of food for termites, and can harbour them. You might find termites in stump grindings because they were in your tree stump, but the stump grinding themselves were not what attracted the termites. Stump grindings are a great organic and natural form of mulch, so we recommend using them after your stump gets ground.
