The Benefits of Ottawa Stump Removal Services

Our stump removal services will provide you with a massive sense of relief in addition to these benefits:

Save Time & Money

Stump removal is by no means a DIY project. Property owners often avoid calling for tree removal services because they fear it will be a long process. Luckily, that’s not true! By hiring Ottawa professionals to do the work for you, not only will they save you time, they’ll save you money by allowing you to skip the rental of necessary (and dangerous) equipment, equipment that should only be handled by a professional anyhow.

Profit from a Job Well Done

When it comes to stump grinding, Ottawa residents don’t know very much about root systems or tree species. This lack of knowledge can lead to issues if a property owner decides to do a stump removal themselves.

Using Ottawa tree removal services, on the other hand, guarantees that the stump removal will be completed without any harm to the rest of the property. The certified arborists will also assess the condition of your tree stump, as well as know the right equipment and techniques to remove it.

Sell Your Property Faster

If you’re fixing up your home in Ottawa to sell it, you’re probably doing a bit of landscaping. No matter how many flowers and decorations you put on your property, that stump will stand out no matter the season. It will have to go because you don’t want to give potential owners more reasons than necessary to deter them from putting an offer on the house.

Increase Your Landscaping Options

With a tree stump taking up space on your Ottawa property, owners are forced to limit what they want to do with the area. Or they force themselves to creatively camouflage the stump. But the fact of the matter is that you should remove a tree stump no matter what. Take it out of the equation, and your landscaping options are much more flexible.


The Dangers of Leaving a Stump

It might not seem like a big deal to leave that unsightly stump right where it is, but there are actually a few dangers that you need to keep in mind. Aside from the fact that tree stumps are normally not so easy on the eyes and are, oftentimes, reminders of natural disasters, you should also be aware that:

  • Stumps pose dangers to children and equipment: People, Stumps pose dangers to children and equipment: People, particularly children, don’t normally keep their eyes open for things while running around. Going full speed and tripping over an unseen stump is a guaranteed injury. With equipment, such as a lawnmower or even automobiles, small stumps can lead to major damages and costly repairs. It’s best to free up the space for something more pleasant.

  • Stumps rot and attract pests: If a stump is left on your lawn for too long, it will begin to rot and become a breeding ground for a variety of pests, including termites.
