Some Key Benefits of Stump Grinding

Everyone knows you don’t want to have pests in your house. And you know that trees can be a tempting home for pests, too. But the average person has probably never thought about the fact that the stump you’ll end up with after tree removal in Asheville can also attract plenty of pests.

In fact, it’s much easier for many pests to colonize a stump than it is for them to make their way into a living tree. A living tree has defense mechanisms that can protect it from pests, but the same isn’t true of a stump. Stumps are much more vulnerable to pests and they can come right in.

Wood-Boring Insects Are Just Waiting to Get to Your Stump

Wood-boring insects like beetles and termites often prey on healthy, live trees – but they can go into overdrive when the tree is removed and the stump stays put. No matter whether you had tree removal in Asheville done by a professional or your tree simply came down on its own, stump removal is worthwhile.

We’ve worked with customers in Asheville who’ve found leaving stumps on their property caused all kinds of headaches in the future. Not only is a stump a tripping hazard, but pests can gradually leapfrog from a stump all the way to other trees on the property. Then, all those trees may also be in danger.
