Whether you’re working on your yard and making improvements or cleaning up after a storm, knowing the appropriate way to deal with downed trees or leftover stumps can be challenging. In some ways, the benefits of either procedure overlap but there are other ways that they are very different. Trees N Stumps R Us is the leading tree removal company in Naples, Florida, and can help you determine the best course of action for you. This article will explore both Naples stump removal and Naples stump grinding so that you can see the benefits of both procedures. 

Benefits of Naples Stump Removal

Stump removal is exactly that – complete removal with no part of the tree left behind. In fact, there is usually a hole left behind, as most stump removal companies do not fill in the space where the stump once was. Stump removal tends to cost a little more than stump grinding since the entire stump and root ball need to be removed and disposed of. The price will vary and is dependent upon the size of the left-behind stump and how difficult it is to remove it. Here are a few reasons why complete removal may be the appropriate solution for your needs. 

Stump Removal Completely Removes the Stump

Stump removal is appropriate for situations that require completely removing the stump and the roots. This allows for replanting if that’s desired. Nothing is left behind in the yard, so there is also no risk of regrowth on the existing stump. 

Stump Removal Creates Safety 

Having a stump in your yard can be a hazard to children, pets, or lawn equipment. Completely removing it ensures that your yard is safe and able to be used as you like without any unsightly stumps in your outdoor space. 

Naples Stump Removal Keeps Roots From Spreading

When roots are left behind, they can continue to absorb water and spread. Roots can damage pipes or interfere with them creating potential plumbing problems. Be sure to contact a professional for assistance in order to ensure that all of the roots are completely removed so that there is no risk of regrowth. 

Benefits of Stump Grinding

Stump grinding involves using specialized machinery to systematically grind the stump down. Naples stump grinding generally costs a little less than stump removal since nothing is removed from the property and you don’t have to completely remove it. Here are a few ways that stump grinding is a good choice. 

No Home for Bugs

When tree removal occurs, but stumps are left behind in the yard, the chance of carpenter ants, termites, and other bugs creating a home in the stump increase. Reducing the ability for bugs to be at home in your backyard is one benefit of Naples stump grinding. 

No Hole Left in Yard

When stumps are completely removed, there is often a hole or depression left in the ground. The size of this hole can vary, depending on the size of the stump and the root ball. Stump grinding turns the remaining stump into mulch, and the mulch is left in the yard, so there is no hole that needs to be landscaped after we complete your project. 

Your Yard Can Be Fully Used

Stumps in your yard are unsightly and potentially dangerous. Removing the hazard makes your yard safe and attractive. Because there is no hole left behind that needs to be filled or landscaped, stump grinding is an easier way to create an attractive, usable yard.
