Tree roots cause problems

Tree roots cause problems

No landscape would be complete without trees. Many gardens all over the country feature them. They are usually present in even the most built up areas, paying homage to nature in an urban landscape. However, where buildings and trees sometimes fail to co-exist peacefully, problems can arise.

Wayward tree roots can massively impact on the infrastructure around them. Roots sometimes grow into sewerage pipes when seeking nutrients, water and oxygen, causing blockages in the process. Subsidence can create structural problems for many homes, caused by trees absorbing water from the soil, and the soil shrinking as a result. In some circumstances, roots can also grow into the structure itself. Such problems often go unnoticed until a lot of damage has been done which is when Tree Root Removal work needs to be done.

Whether you’ve experienced these issues, or any other tree-related problems, Leaf Matters can help. We specialise in every area of tree surgery including felling, stump grinding and we Remove Tree Stumps, in and around Sevenoaks, from Beckenham to Tonbridge.

Dead stumps – unsightly and dangerous

Whether it’s only recently become a stump in your garden, or you’ve just acquired a stump after felling a tree, it’s a good idea to get rid of it as soon as possible. Not only is it unsightly, it’s also dangerous, not just to you but to the rest of the plants in your garden.

There are a few good reasons to get rid of tree stumps sooner rather than later. Obviously, the first reason is simply that tree stumps can be pretty ugly in appearance. If you’re spending a lot of time in your garden, a tree stump can really detract from its appearance. Nobody wants to look at a decomposing tree stump.

The second reason is for practical purposes. You may have plans for your garden, such as a new drive, putting in flower beds or simply new planting, which a tree stump is quite literally blocking. Get your usable space back by having the tree stump ground away.

The third reason is that leaving it there can actually do more harm than good to the rest of your garden. Rotting wood attracts fungi, mould and pests, which can spread throughout your garden and damage anything else growing in it.

Tree stumps are usually removed with a stump grinder, which looks a bit like a lawn mower. Once the stump is ground away, the tree will not grow back.

We cover many areas of Kent and London, and have the specialist stump grinding equipment to get rid of that troublesome stump for good. Get in touch today and see how we can help you remove that stump from your land.
