Trees can offer significant benefits for any property. They add aesthetic appeal, enhance air quality and even increase the property’s value. So, ultimately, planting a tree and taking care of it is an investment in many ways.
However, people often ignore this responsibility, and they don’t take enough time and energy to maintain their trees. This ignorance can lead to tree sickness, property damage and an overgrown, unattractive look.
If you have trees on your property, you might want to consult a tree service for your needs. Most people are often confused if stump removal is included in the service under the tree removal offer.
No, stump removal is not provided as a part of the tree removal service. The tree removal process typically includes taking the tree down, cutting the wood into logs, and cutting the stump as close as possible to the ground.
