After going through the trouble to have a tree removed, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to leave the stump sitting there. A few of the top reasons to remove stumps from your yard include:
No one likes gazing out into the yard and seeing old stumps dotting the landscape. They look even worse when weeds and other plants start growing on them, which inevitably happens over time.
Increases your yard space, most people want the widest, clearest yards possible, and stumps really get in the way. Make way for new plantings, driveways or sidewalks.
Some stumps are obvious, but others get camouflaged by grass, weeds and other plants and become tripping hazards. They can also be very hard on lawn mower blades costing you money, time and frustration.
Stumps will quite often become home to pests like ants, spiders, and termites. Removing stumps before they become infested is prudent.
