REASONS TO REMOVE TREE STUMPS OR LEAVE A TREE STUMP IN THE GROUND
An old tree stump might not cause problems at first, but the longer you let it stick around, the more it can become a nuisance. Old stumps can get in the way of mowing your lawn or be a trip hazard for you and your family. Plus, they make it hard to plant a new tree when you’re ready.
IS IT OK TO LEAVE A TREE STUMP IN THE GROUND?
Shortly after they’re separated from the tree that once stood in your garden stumps begin a very slow decaying process. And yes, over time a rotting stump becomes a hub for home damaging pests.
So, while you can opt to leave the stump and let it rot, the critters that come along in the process might spread out to other plants and trees in your garden or even invade your home. Removing the stump, or grinding it down, is the best way to avoid these pest problems.
