It may seem counter-intuitive, but removing tree stumps is a tedious task compared to cutting trees. While it might appear difficult, tree removal by cutting is a very straightforward job, while stumps can be much trickier. This is why stump removal services are generally not included in tree removal packages by tree service companies; they are performed and charged as a separate service. As a result, tree stumps are a common sight. Unfortunately, apart from being an unwanted eyesore, tree stumps can pose some real threats. They become great places for wasps and termites to build their nests. They can also damage your lawnmower and even cause injury to people walking in the yard. Getting rid of tree stumps is always a good idea.
