By Advance Tree Pros

stump removalWhen there is a stump on your property it can be unsightly and sometimes even detrimental to the integrity of your property. Typically, a stump needs to be removed after a dead tree has been cut. Sometimes, a tree needs to be removed because the branches are likely to cause harm soon if and when the weather gets bad. However, removing a stump isn’t exactly an easy process, nor is it something you should try to do on your own. The root system that is still attached to the tree stump is extremely complex and lengthy. This is why it’s so important to leave the tree cutting up to the professionals. Before the professionals start removing things, there are four things you need to consider before having a stump removal performed on your property.

City Council Regulations

Even though it would seem like you should be able to do anything you want on your piece of property, the fact of the matter is, that tree cutting does involve some city regulations. Always check your city council regulations around trees on private property. In some cases, you or your removal service may need to acquire permission prior to removals. You can ask for a copy of your tree-cutting laws in your area, as well as an application for removal. Typically, the council will ask for the type, size, and property lines of where you and the tree are located.

Stump Grinders Don’t Always Work

If you are considering removing the stump yourself, you’re probably considering a stump grinder. However, what type of grinder you use and if the grinder will work is all dependent on the type of wood the stump is made from. This means that grinders do not always work. Actually, they can end up being more work than they’re worth. A professional will easily be able to assess the right removal technique better than you.

Property Damage
