Stump Removal Service

Many people think that once a tree has been cut down, the job is done. However, leaving the stump behind can lead to a number of problems. First, it provides a perfect home for pests such as carpenter ants, beetles, and termites. In addition, the stump can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can be dangerous for small children and pets. Therefore, it is important to have tree stumps removed by a professional service as soon as possible. Burbank Tree Trimming Services is equipped to handle any size job quickly and efficiently. We also offer a variety of other tree services, such as trimming and pruning. Call us today to schedule a consultation.
What is The Cost of Stump Removal?
If you have a stump on your property, you may be wondering how much it will cost to have it removed. The cost of stump removal typically ranges from $175 to $550, although the exact price will depend on the size and condition of the stump. Stump grinding grinds the stump down with a special machine. This process is typically more economical, with prices ranging from $75 to $200. However, there is a risk that the stump may decay over time, becoming a host for toxic fungi, mold, and various disease-spreading insects. In addition, decaying stumps can be unsightly and may attract animals such as rodents and snakes. For these reasons, stump removal is generally the better option, even though it may seem expensive at first. By investing in stump removal, you can keep yourself and your family safe from potential health risks.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Stump Removal
There are a few factors that contribute to the overall cost of stump removal. The first is the diameter and age of the stump. A larger stump will obviously take longer to remove than a smaller one. Similarly, an older stump that has had time to grow a dense network of roots will be more difficult to remove than a young stump. The second factor is the condition of the soil. If the soil is loose and easy to dig, then removal will be less expensive than if the soil is hard and compacted. The third factor is the type of stump. Some trees have shallow root systems that can be easily removed, while other trees have deep taproots that require special equipment to remove. Finally, there is the issue of cleanup. After the stump has been removed, there will be a large hole in the ground that needs to be filled in and leveled off. This can add to the overall cost of removal.
Reasons to Consider Tree Removal
While stump grinding is a more cost-effective method, it isn’t the most useful when it comes to keeping your house and garden safe. Here are a few reasons why you should consider stump removal over stump grinding:
● Stump grinding doesn’t take out the stump from its roots. As a result, it leaves a significant part of the stump behind. This becomes the home for pests, fungi, and molds.
● Removing the stump will preserve the health of the other trees and plants in your garden. As already mentioned, stump grinding leaves a part of the stump behind that may rot and allow pests to thrive. This may, in turn, affect the surrounding flora.
● Stump removal improves your home’s curb appeal. A decaying stump in a beautiful garden looks out of place. Call us to remove it, and your garden and home will look more beautiful.
