Tree removal is a common activity taken up for a number of reasons – landscape beautification, hazardous tree management or clearing large tracts of land for new construction projects. But what is often neglected is simultaneous tree stump removal in Melbourne after a tree has been cut down.
This has a terrible effect on the environment. Stumps left behind ultimately decay over a period of time and become a breeding ground for termites and harmful microorganisms. It soon turns into a health risk to the surroundings. A stump left behind is an obstruction for pedestrians and is an ungainly sight in public places or private gardens. If the stump too is immediately removed, the area where the tree once stood can be flattened, re-laid with turf or be used to plant young trees or colourful flower beds. It can also be used as a children’s playground. Tree stump removal in Melbourne becomes doubly important when clearing land for building sites as the area has to be evenly rolled out before laying the foundation.
Tree stump removal in Melbourne is an extremely laborious process especially if a tree that has been removed is large and has roots spread out deep below the ground. It is always advisable to call in professional tree care services who have trained arborists to carry out this task. They use powerful equipment to instantly grind the stump to mulch. If the tree is on private property, the mulch is given to the owner for use in the garden. The equipment used for this purpose has different power ratings – from the very powerful for big stumps to smaller ones that can be taken through a narrow backyard wicker gate.
The other options that are usually considered by die-hard DIY people are slow burning the stumps or drilling holes and pouring in chemicals – both methods being hardly effectual in doing away with underground roots. Leave the work of tree stump removal in Melbourne in the capable hands of experts only.
