This Stump Grinding Seattle image was created by me!

Seattle, on Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest, is surrounded by water, mountains and evergreen forests, and encompasses thousands of acres of parkland (hence its nickname, “Emerald City”). It’s home to a thriving tech industry, with Microsoft and headquartered in its metropolitan area. The futuristic Space Needle, a legacy of the 1962 World’s Fair, is its most recognizable landmark. Stump grinding after tree removal is important for more than just aesthetic reasons. Sure, they’re ugly, but leaving a stump behind could also lead to garden infestation! If a tree stump is not removed correctly it will almost certainly begin to rot. A rotting stump is a terrible thing to leave in your garden because it will attract pests. Termites, ants and beetles make their home in damp rotting wood and an old stump can be their dream home. Why ruin your property?

It’s also really important that you hire a professional to take care of your stump grinding. Have you ever tried to dig a stump out yourself, without proper equipment? It’s tougher than you think. You could hack away for an entire day using an axe, shovel, pick, chain and saw and still get nowhere. You’ll probably end up with a massive crater long before the stump is properly removed! To say tree stumps are stubborn is an understatement.
