Stump Removal Can Be Dangerous:
- Attaching a chain from the tree stump to the back of your car or truck to yank it out may seem like a good idea, but many problems can arise. For example, the tree root may be too deeply embedded into the ground which can cause the chains to snap. Deep rooting can also cause damage to your vehicle, such as twisting the frame or removing the bumper. Instead of pulling the stump out of the ground, hire a professional to grind the stump down. Stump grinders are designed to destroy the roots of the stump and will reduce the stump itself to small wood chips and dirt, making it easier to dispose of.
