Choosing to remove the stump of a removed tree can benefit the property in multiple ways besides the lack of them being aesthetically pleasing. Stumps left to decay for decades on a landscaped property can promote the establishment of termites and other pests including harmful funguses. Stumps from elm trees, maples, willow, and other vigorous species typically sprout suckers and waterspouts which can grow six feet plus a year requiring constant removal, waterspouts may also pop up from other locations on the root network such as in the middle of your lawn. Choosing to have a stump ground out is a non invasive to surrounding plants and structures which solves these problems without over compacting soil and ripping up unnecessary surrounding areas.
