Most homeowners deal will tree removal issues, and these problems don’t necessarily end when a tree is cut down. As the leading provider of stump removal Virginia Beach, we help hundreds of homes and businesses remove tree stumps every year. Sometimes stump removal can be time-consuming and costly, as roots can burrow deep below the ground and structures above ground.

Sometimes property owners try to plant new trees around a stump. Sometimes, this is a perfectly viable option. However, below are several reasons why we recommend removing tree stumps from your property.

Invasive Plants

Occasionally, other species of plants can invade dead or dying tree stumps. These species are often small and hard to remove. In most cases, invasive plants that appear must have chemical treatments administered to eradicate them. These chemicals can harm the surrounding areas, making it difficult to cultivate. Additionally, fungi are a frequent companion to a damp tree stump, and these can be a danger to pets and other animals.

Aesthetic Issues

Your property values can decrease if potential buyers spot dead stumps surrounding your property. After all, they’re ugly and will cost the new buyer money to have them professionally removed. Once a stump has been removed, the area can be landscaped, and your property value will increase. Perhaps you could add a baby tree, a picnic table, or a flowerbed.

Root Problems

If a tree stump remains in place, the roots can continue to grow. This can cause damage to plumbing pipes, sidewalks, and the structural integrity of your home if not dealt with professionally and efficiently. It’s best to remove stumps quickly instead of leaving them in one place for a while.

Pest Invasions

When tree stumps are left behind after a tree is cut down, they naturally decompose over time. This is a messy process, and it brings a variety of ants, termites, and other bugs to feed on the remains. These insects can spread to other healthy plants and trees in your garden. Again, we recommend having a tree stump removed as soon as possible as a way to prevent damage and infestation.

My Name is Carrie and I live in Virginia Beach. I hired Tarzan Tree Service after hearing about them through a friend. I had always gone with another Tree Service so I was a little hesitant to try someone new. I scheduled an estimate and within 24 hours one of the owners was there. He presented himself in a professional manner and gave me a very competitive price. I was a little concerned about their legitimacy due to the low price so I checked out their website and found printable copies of their license and insurance on the site with phone numbers to verify it all. When they showed up to do the job the entire crew was clean-cut and courteous.  They gave my son a ride on the equipment before starting the job. These men removed 8 huge trees over my house and back yard within one day and left the yard cleaner than they found it. There is not a better tree company out there...

Thank you Tarzan Tree, these guys rock!!!
