Have A Problematic Stump In Your Yard? What To Do

If you have a tree stump or two around the property that you don't like, because they are an eye sore or a safety concern, there are some things you'll want to know about the stump. If the roots are near your home and you worry about them causing plumbing issues and other damage to the foundation, you need the roots removed as well. Here are some things to consider and to think about when you are ready to get the stumps off the property.

Don't Burn or Rot

Some people think they can save money by getting rid of the tree stump on their own. They try to burn the stump, which can lead to a fire around your property, smoke inhalation, and other problems. They also try to rot the stump. Rotting the stump can lead a variety of pests in the yard, and both of these methods allow the roots to continue growing until the stump is removed. You also have to get rid of the stump on your own if you go this route.

Get Professional Removal and Root Extraction

The professionals will come and use professional tools to pull the tree stump out of the ground, and then to extract the roots that are close to your home and doing damage.

Ask for a Foundation Inspection

You don't want a terrible foundation problem that will go unnoticed that will end up damaging the house or costing a lot of money.
