Grinding up stumps is tough work. In fact, it can actually be quite dangerous. This is why many homeowners are advised against attempting to complete this work with chainsaws and a variety of crude tools that they already have on hand. There is even a lot of risk in using a professional stump grinder on your own, especially if you lack experience. Following are just a few of the many reasons why it is always best to use a reputable stump grinding service instead.

To start, professionals can make sure that this work is done safely and completely. They will be able to get more of the remaining tree up, which will, in turn, free up more usable space in your yard. With their help, you can eliminate trip and fall hazards and all of the costly liability issues that these entail.

Another benefit of working with these professionals is being able to keep your yard virtually pest-free. Dead, dying and rotting stumps can attract a lot of insects. This can be very problematic if you happen to reside in a region with rampant termite infestations. The last thing that you want to do is to give these bugs a reason to congregate on or around your home.

If you are planning on selling the property, hiring professionals is a great way to quickly spruce up the land before showing people your home. Keep in mind that your landscaped areas will usually be the very first places that people see. You want to make sure that these are always making the right impressions on prospective buyers.

Given our extensive experience in this industry and our expansive knowledge of various tree types, this is work that the professionals at North Jersey Tree Experts can perform without harming any of the other foliage in your yard. If you have interconnected root systems, we can make sure to extract only the dead matter that you want to be removed, and without causing damage to any surrounding trees. Keep in mind that leaving the stump of a dead, diseased or infested tree in place can actually allow these problems to spread.
