Why Remove a Tree Stump?
Old, rotting stumps are clearly an eyesore for your otherwise pristine landscaping. Utah homeowners in and around Ogden can call Arbor Pro to get rid of their pesky tree stumps. Not only are unsightly stumps a valid excuse to grind them down, but they can quickly become overrun with pests or disease. Trust us, you don’t want to deal with either of those!
A study conducted by Utah State University shows that some of the most common diseases and pests for trees in Utah include Dutch Elm disease (spread by Elm Bark Beetles), Thousand Cankers disease (spread by Walnut Twig Beetles), Balsam Woolly Adelgid (tiny insects), and the Velvet longhorned beetle. Over time, a rotting stump also becomes a hub for home damaging pests like termites or carpenter ants. Take care of those pesky stumps before you have to start charging rent to the insects.
Stump Grinding is Dangerous
Always call the professionals if you’re in need of stump removal. Stump grinding is a dangerous process. As professionals, we provide all of the necessary and expensive equipment to grind down your stumps. We use a machine to completely shred the stump down into small wood chips. Stump grinding is much more efficient than stump removal. You can even keep all of the wood chips to use in your other landscaping if you’d like.
Never attempt to pull a stump out of the ground. Roots run deeper than the eye can see! Save your back, your time, and your health by calling the professionals. Stump grinding isn’t the Friday night activity that you want to call your friends over to help you take care of.
Is Stump Removal Necessary?
Once it’s determined that a tree is declining or no longer living, it’s a safety hazard for your property—even if it doesn’t have obvious signs like hanging branches or a leaning trunk. Have the tree in question removed, and then decide whether you’d like to have the stump removed as well. Overtime stumps become a breeding ground for pests like termites and fungus. You don’t want to put your home at further risk! If the stump is left close to your home, then it is likely best to remove it and plant a new tree in its place.
Reasons You Need a Stump Removed
Tree stumps can be unsightly and detract from the overall appearance of your lawn or garden. Removing them can enhance the overall look of your landscape.
Stumps can pose a tripping hazard, especially for children and the elderly. They could also damage lawn equipment if not seen.
Tree stumps can attract insects and pests like termites, ants, and beetles. These pests can eventually spread to your home, causing more serious problems.
If the tree was removed due to disease, the stump can still harbor the illness and could potentially spread it to other trees and plants in the area.

We were so impressed with Arbor Pro. After trying 5 different tree removal businesses, Arbor Pro is the only one who answered the phone. They even offered us a same day estimate! They were able to schedule us within two weeks when others are months out. We had several trees we needed cut down and they tackled the job easily and were finished up in just a few hours. This is a fair and honest company. We highly recommend them and we’ll definitely continue to use them in the future!!
