Getting rid of a root problem
Stump Removal Sunshine Coast
Are your trees getting enough oxygen and minerals? Do you mulch and fertilize them regularly? Do they get enough water? Is your soil compacted, crushing their roots and restricting their growth? Do you monitor for pests?
Because roots are mostly hidden, we often forget to look at them when trying to diagnose a problem, but even insects, and fungal and nutrient problems can often be traced to the roots of a tree. So can under and overwatering and under and over fertilizing.
Rooted to the spot
Roots provide a stable base and balance and they gather water and nutrients. Depending on the tree, the roots may be shallow or deep, wide or narrow, but they tend to be strong enough to crack cement and concrete, and even damage foundations and lift pavements. Roots often cause major problems by damaging and blocking nearby plumbing and sewer pipes too.
If a tree is removed, but the stump or remaining roots continue to grow, your problem is not solved at all, and the repair costs from invasive tree roots may add up. Sometimes roots can be shaved, but that is risky and you need professional skills or you are likely to kill the tree. Burning out a stump is not recommended, and nor is pouring on chemicals, which can contaminate the soil around it for years. Excavation is impractical. Stump grinding is the answer.
