When to remove a stump
Tree stumps can be left in the ground after felling, but this can lead to problems with suckering where new shoots arise from the trunk and roots.When trees are felled or fall, their stumps should be removed to prevent suckering and fungal root rot. Although often large and heavy, we can remove the stumps using the right equipment and technique.
Completely dead stumps won’t form suckers, but they can play host to root diseases such as honey fungus, so aren’t worth leaving in and taking the risk stumps can be physically removed at any time. However, it can often be the most cost-efficient for our customers to book in this service at the same time as we are taking a tree down to the ground level.
