There are different reasons why you should prioritise tree stump removal Adelaide. Aside from the fact that it is unsightly and a nuisance to all your plans in the garden or landscape, it also poses a risk of injury. A tree stump may look harmless at first, but it could potentially cause your kids or passers-by to trip and get injured. Also, it may also become a breeding ground or ideal place for pests to live on, thereby increasing the possibility of an infestation near your home.
With more than enough reasons to remove a stump on your property, you now have to decide how you want to remove it. Fortunately, there are more than a couple of options to choose.
Grinding the Stump
It may be true that an average yet committed property owner like you can remove a tree stump on your own by grinding it, but the one thing you must realise is that it takes hard work to complete it. There are countless instances in which property owners tried grinding the stump and ended up calling an expert since they no longer could finish it. Aside from hard work, you also need time to do it, and lots of it. So, if you are busy with work or any other relevant thing, stump grinding is not your cup of tea. If you can give a day or two for it, the next question is if you have the essential safety gear as well as equipment such as a stump grinder to do the job. If you do not have those things, you are much better off hiring a stump grinding pro instead of doing it yourself.
Waiting for it to Rot
Another method of removing a tree stump is rotting it. It works by drilling some holes into the stump and filling those holes with a substance made from nitrogen, such as sodium nitrite. You also can use compost or manure. It is a practical yet time-consuming method. Its most significant benefit is the fact that after putting in the nitrogen-based substance, you no longer have to do anything except to wait for it to rot. But then again, the problem is if you are looking to get rid of the tree stump the soonest time possible, it does not give you that luxury. However, if you have the willingness to wait, it is by far the most cost-effective method.
Hiring the Pros for Tree Stump Removal
Finally, the last and probably most sensible option is to tap the services of a professional tree stump removal Adelaide expert to do the laborious work on your behalf. The best thing about hiring the pros is that you do not have to get your hands dirty, plus you are confident that the stump is finally out for good.
