You did the right thing, took down the trees that were either sick or were showing signs of decay, and now the stumps remain behind.
Although there are a great many ‘ways’ of removing the stump yourself, several are dangerous, and many more will not give you the result you want, which is not more stump. Renting the equipment needed can be expensive and the job itself is time-consuming. Precision Tree and Landscaping has professional crews that are proficient in tree and stump removal.
This is where stump grinding comes into play. Any stump left in the ground can reshoot after it has been cut down. Stump grinding removes this possibility. Roots need leaves to start the regrowing process, so a stump that starts reshooting, growing suckers, or new branches on a tree you wanted to be rid of, is a problem.

- Having a stump or stumps takes up valuable real estate on your property.
- Stumps can damage your weedwhacker and mower.
