When a dead or unwanted tree is removed, it is often necessary to take further steps to remove the stump as well. Property owners are often surprised at just how difficult it is to get rid of the last remains of a tree that has taken root there for decades. Connor Tree Service uses specialized equipment to provide quick, clean stump grinding in Charleston, SC, Mt. Pleasant, and the surrounding areas.
Stump grinding is not always a necessity when removing a tree from your property. In many cases, the stump of a removed tree is simply left to decay naturally over the course of the following months or years. However, there are some great reasons to have a certified arborist go ahead and grind the stump down right away. Because a tree’s stump is still connected to the original root network, a neglected stump will often sprout new shoots, which must in turn be removed later. A stump that rots slowly over time also creates a favorable environment for the development of fungi and diseases that can spread to other plants in the area.
