Important Reasons To Use A Stump Removal Service

Have you recently had a tree cut down, but the stump was left in the ground? Did you buy a home with one or more stumps already in the yard? Rather than attempting to take care of the issue yourself, here are some reasons why you should consider hiring a stump removal service instead:

Speed: Most home stump removal processes are relatively slow. Digging a stump out manually could take days, or even a month if you only work on weekends. If you try to speed up the stump decomposition process, it could still take several years for it to break down. A stump removal service will have access to heavy equipment that is unavailable to many homeowners. They'll also have the skills and training to have the stump out of the ground in less than a day.

Cost: How much is your time worth to you? If it takes you several days, or even weeks, to remove a stump, consider everything else you could have done in that same period of time. If you work from home at all, the removal process could result in lost wages because you weren't able to take on an additional client. A stump removal service will cost actual money, but allow you to get back to your work and your clients much sooner than you would otherwise. Even if you don't work from home, having a professional conduct the removal will allow you more time for things like spending time with your kids or on planning an important upcoming event.

Disposal: Although a stump may only protrude a few inches from the dirt, it may extend several feet into the ground. If you have a single extremely large stump or several slightly smaller ones, you may end up wondering what to do with the stumps once they're out of the ground. A stump removal service will be able to dispose of your stumps, so that you don't have to worry about it. Make sure you ask them whether stump disposal is included in the removal price or whether there are additional fees involved.

Safety: If you try to dig out a stump, you'll still need to get it out of the hole. However, you also probably won't be able to completely sever all the roots at the bottom of the stump. As a result, when you try to pull the stump out, the chains could snap or you could end up bending the frame of your vehicle. The equipment used by a stump removal service like Brandywine Tree & Shrub will be specialized, which will help to prevent injury or damage to your property.
