If you have had a tree removed from your yard in the past, you probably have a stump sitting on your property. Maybe you have moved into a new home and you have a yard filled with tree stumps. Here are a few reasons that you might need to get those stumps professionally removed by an Atlanta tree company.

They’re Not Pretty

Having a lawn filled with stumps won’t win your home the title of yard of the year. To put it simply, if you are conscious about the aesthetics of your yard, it’s time to have them removed. All your hard landscaping work will be worth it.

They Can Attract Pests

Our Atlanta tree trimming experts believe the most important reason to get your tree stump removed is the fact that these rotting and decaying trees make your home a predator to termites. They attract wood-eating beetles and insects that could destroy or damage not only your home, but also the other healthy trees on your property.

They Take Up Space

It’s hard to upkeep your landscaping when you have to plan the layout around a stump. They take up a lot of space that could otherwise we taken up by a garden or beautiful flowers. It’s a great idea to have them removed especially if you don’t have a very large yard.

They Can Be a Liability

If you have young children or even children in your neighborhood, they could be out playing and trip on the stump. Your neighbor might be chasing their dog through your yard and trip and break something, leaving you accountable!

They Are Hard To Maneuver Around

When you are out mowing your lawn, you will have to try to get around the stump without damaging your mower blades. That’s an additional expense you could pay time after time without the removal of the stump.

The stump can also be a breeding ground for new plant growth that could take nutrients from your existing foliage. With that, you will have to remove them time and time again.
