What is Tree Stump Removal?

Tree stump removal in Blackpool is exactly what we do. We mainly carry this out after a tree felling & removal. However, if you do have an old tree stump in your garden our “stump grinder” makes easy work of your stump removal.

Although stumps can be left in the ground after tree felling, the decision to leave them in there  can, in some cases, be an issue. It’s not just their unsightly nature and potential obstruction of future landscaping projects; the likelihood of the stump forming new shoots and possibly spreading root diseases such as honey fungus needs to be taken into account.

Paying that little bit extra for stump removal at the same time the tree is felled often makes the most economic sense. Of course, stumps are often large and heavy and as such require the right equipment and techniques to be successfully removed. LH Tree Services own stump grinders. Our arborists receive regular update training on the best stump removal techniques and how to minimise ground disturbance to leave a completely clear patch of ground where the tree once stood.

Here are some more good reasons to call for LH Tree Services stump grinding in Blackpool and the surrounding areas:

  • A STUMP IS AN EYESORE

People pay a lot to have landscaping services keep their garden looking beautiful. It’s a shame to undermine all the expense and effort with an ugly tree stump. Removing it will restore your garden to it’s beautiful self.

  • TREE STUMPS ARE A POTENTIAL LIABILITY

One of the best reasons to call LH Tree Services tree stump removal service is because leaving the stump in place creates a potential liability problem. If someone trips over the stump and injures themselves they might be able to make a case that you were negligent to leave it in place.

  • STUMPS TAKE UP MORE SPACE THAN YOU THINK

A tree stump doesn’t just take the area of the stump itself out of commission, it also makes it nearly impossible to make use of the area around it. Even a smaller stump affects a large area. LH Tree Services stump grinding will return your full garden to you.

  • TREE STUMP ROOTS REMAIN ACTIVE

Removing a tree and leaving a stump does not necessarily signal an end to root activity. With some species of tree, the roots continue to grow after tree felling. These roots can quietly spread toward your foundation causing cracks, or they may interfere with water pipes, below ground cables or a septic tank.

  • A STUMP CAN UNDERMINE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME

Local Blackpool estate agents will tell you that kerb appeal can affect the market value of a home by 15% or more. A visible tree stump on your property could undermine your ability to get the price you want if you decide to sell your home. Call LH Tree Services tree surgeons. Our stump grinder will protect your home’s value.

  • STUMPS CAN UNDERMINE WALKWAYS

Stump roots are notorious for creating ground-level problems, such as uneven pavements. Not only is a bulging pathway an eyesore, but if someone trips on your uneven pavement you may quickly wind up with a claim. Call LH Tree Services we will get rid of that tree stump.

  • STUMPS CAN ATTRACT PESTS

A tree stump might seem harmless, but a closer look often reveals it is anything but. Tree stumps have a tendency to attract pests such as carpenter ants, termites, beetles, wood wasps and more. The termites it attracts can migrate to your home, while wood wasps can put an end to a backyard BBQ pretty quickly. Call LH Tree Services for expert stump grinding in Blackpool and the surrounding area.
