The benefits of tree pruning

  • Reduce possible storm damage by removing excess interior tree branches.
  • Increase health of trees by removing diseased branches.
  • Increase safety of trees by removing large dead branches or weak or broken branches.
  • Improve growing conditions for landscape shrubs or grass.
  • Reduce level of leaf diseases by increasing the air flow throughout the tree canopy.


In the past stumps have been pulled out, dug out, burned out, or have poured various chemicals on stumps to accelerate the decay of the stump. Although there are a number of ways to remove stumps, using a stump grinder is the fastest way to remove a tree stump. A stump grinder is a specialized piece of tree care equipment that is designed specifically to grind tree stumps and grind tree roots. The stump grinder has a metal wheel with cutting teeth bolted to the wheel. Many people thought that stump grinding was an optional tree care service that wasn’t necessary if the stump was in a remote location in the landscape. However, did you know current research indicates that grinding out tree stumps can reduce the chance of other trees in your landscape from becoming infected with tree decay fungi. Stumps that remain after a tree removal can become infected with wood decay fungi. Over time these fungi will develop spores and fungal hyphae that will grow out into the soil. If a healthy tree is wounded in the future the decay fungi will have the opportunity to infect the wound.
