What To Do After A Tree Is Removed

Often times people like to think about the process of getting rid of or cutting down a tree as an absolute. But there can be a few situations left behind to think about and take care of after av tree has been removed. Here’s what you should do if you have a tree removed on Staten Island.

First and foremost, there is the matter of leaving behind a tree stump. Some home owners don’t mind having a tree stump left over and actually attempt to plant smaller trees and plants around it in an effort to re-purpose that area. But what you can’t forget is that the stump is now dead and will slowly start to decompose. This will lead to unsightly fungi and plants sprouting from it. But even beyond that, it opens the door for bugs like ants and termites to take root and nest, causing more serious long term problems on your property.

The best course of action after a tree has been removed is to hire someone to grind the stump down flat. This will leave the surface area essentially filled with sawdust and the spot no longer ideal for regrowing another tree. G&R Tree Service specializes in stump removal and land clearing on Staten Island. But if you have regrowth on your mind, all is not lost. It’s just a matter of being smart.

If you are looking to regrow a tree in the same area as the previous one, make sure to keep your expectations in check. There is often no way to fully get rid of existing roots from most larger trees. That, combined with the levels of sawdust in the ground now, will simply not be conductive to heavy growth. But, with the addition of new soil and a few smaller trees or plants, you could do a fine job of re-purposing and covering up that original spot.
