When we remove a stump, we take the entire stump from the ground along with the root system. This leaves a hole in the ground that needs to be filled (the root ball can grow up to 10 times the size of the trunk), however, this is often the best option if you want to build on the site or plant a new garden. Another good reason for stump removal is aesthetics, because after all, tree stumps don’t look very attractive in Gold Coast gardens. They can also become a hazard that can trip people and pets as they walk or run around the stump and they are a pain to mow around. Another problem with leaving a stump to rot is that it can encourage termites, which is not something that a homeowner ever wants to be faced with on their property.
Then of course, many properties require professional landscaping, as this increases their value, so leaving a stump in the ground isn’t an option. Removing a stump is one of the best ways to improve the appearance of a garden and is often used by homeowners to make their property more attractive to buyers. People who love their gardens also prefer old stumps to be removed because they can make better use of the space, particularly if it’s a big stump with a huge root ball.
