Stumps as you probably know can be the pretty pesky remains of a tree. The problem with stumps is that they are not going to produce another tree. At least it is not likely that they will do so. So they just kind of remain there as part of your property. What can you do with stumps? There are three main options. One is to just leave them be. They will grow what they are meant to grow, but for the most part, they will remain the same. You can remove them to make room for something else or you can grind them!
Benefits of Grinding A Stump
Some people believe that stumps are effectively useless, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. If you grind the stump outright it can be a lot of things. A seat, a table, or just an asset to the overall look of your property. Sure, at times they can feel like they are getting in the way a bit. That is precisely why you would be wise to decide what you want to do with your stump. As we have said grinding it out can really turn it into a lot of things with a practical use.
Just Leave It Be
The main problem with leaving stumps as they are is usually not the stump itself. One of the main issues are the roots. These will continue to grow even without the top part of the tree in sight. They can spread towards areas where they can become a threat to existing structures. So, just leaving the stump as is, can really be a toss-up. That is why we usually advise people to make a decision on their stumps. At the very least what you can do is keep a watchful eye on the stump to make sure that it doesn’t grow out of proportion.
Can You Grind The Roots?
Obviously digging underground to grind at the roots may be totally out of the question. In these cases, the best thing that you could do would be to remove the stump altogether. That said, this is not a dumb question at all. A lot of stumps have roots that are sticking out of the ground and make it tough to walk on that area. If the roots are actually on the surface we can grind them and make a smoother path for you to be able to walk around in that area.
Could I Make Something Out Of My Stump?
The quick answer to that is yes! Can we make your stump into a table? If you want your stump ground out to look like a table in its exact spot we can get that done for you. If you want to make your stump into furniture that can be taken anywhere we can help by removing the stump. From there you would need to take it to someone who makes furniture and have it made by them!
