3 Benefits of Tree Stump Removal in Tacoma

September 30, 2019

When you look out at your Tacoma, Lakewood, or Gig Harbor lawn, do you see stumps? 

It is not uncommon for homeowners and business owners in the area to have a tree removed on their property. In fact, at Apex Tree Experts, your local Tacoma tree service provider, tree removal is one of the more common services that people request in the area. Some trees die, some become infected, and some simply have no place in the aesthetic scheme of the property. 

That said, when you have one or more trees removed on your property, our team will always suggest that you have the stumps removed as well. But why?

Continue reading below to learn the three main benefits that tree stump removal can have on your Tacoma area property. 

Enhanced Aesthetics & Useable Space

One of the largest, most noticeable benefits of having stumps removed on your property is the visual appeal and enhanced aesthetics of your property. Having stumps all over your yard can present a sloppy, unkept look — not to mention that it just about guarantees that you can’t lay down a nice patch of sod in the near future. By removing the stumps in your yard, not only will it look better maintained, but it will also allow you the opportunity to landscape your yard without having to work around the stumps. 

In addition to increasing the visual value of your property, tree stump removal can also increase the amount of usable space in your yard — allowing you to move freely around the yard without any restriction. 

Improved Safety

When you have stumps on your residential or commercial property, you automatically have a risk present that could easily be mitigated by contacting your local Tacoma tree care specialists and requesting a stump grinding estimate. 

For residential properties, tree stumps can be a tripping hazard for your children, family, and guests. For commercial properties, tree stumps are a tripping hazard that can lead to legal troubles should a visitor on your property become injured. 

Rather than risking the injury of yourself and others, consider tree stump removal. 

Avoiding Unwanted Growth

When most people think of a tree stump, they think of the dead remains left behind after a tree removal project. That said, a tree stump can still lead to new growth. If a tree is removed for any other reason than being completely dead, the root system can remain living — leading to new growth in the future. Rather than having new growth emerge, consider having the stump removed. After all, once you have a tree removed, it should become the least of your worries — not another thing to worry about next spring.
