Transform Your Yard with Stump Grinding and Tree Services in Kalamazoo

As arborists, we know more than anybody that the trees around your home can define your entire yard. Trees act as homes for birds, bugs, squirrels, and other critters we like to watch; trees shade us in the hot months and keep us dry in the rainy months. Sometimes, though, trees can create problems for us, as well. Trees can house red squirrels and pest creatures; unkempt trees can drop branches or, in the event of storms, they can collapse onto houses or vehicles.

Choosing what to do with your trees can mean weighing these pros and cons before coming to a decision. That being said, there are more options available to you than simple trimming, leaving the tree to be, and removing it entirely. Here at American Arbor, we believe that you should have as many options available regarding your trees as possible. For that reason, today’ blog post will focus on stump grinding and tree health care for your home in Kalamazoo, Portage, or the surrounding areas.

Stump Grinding for Felled Trees

Trees that are felled generally leave behind a stump in the ground (unless they’ve been wholly uprooted). Once you have a stump, though, you should know that there are a few outcomes possible. If you leave the stump, it could sprout a new sapling to be nurtured; if you want it removed, you can have it ground; if you want it as décor or something to sit on, you can preserve it using wood filler and sanding techniques.

While two of these options can be done at home, stump grinding can be a more difficult task. Nevertheless, stump grinding is essential to preventing termites, pest creatures, and harmful molds and fungus from taking hold in an unattended stump. That’s why we at American Arbor offer stump grinding for any felled trees in your yard or on your property.

Health Care for Important Trees

If you have trees on your property that you’d like to be kept alive and well for a long time, then we also offer options to help take care of them. Just like desk plants and garden plants, trees also need to be pruned of inefficient or dying limbs to keep the health of the entire plant at its peak. Unlike desk plants and garden plants, however, trees may require electrical saws, protective gear, and even ladders or harnesses for an effective trim. To aid in this, we offer tree services such as pruning, trimming, and risk assessment.

If you’re looking to take care of the trees you have or remove the trees you don’t want from your Kalamazoo property, don’t hesitate to contact us today. At American Arbor, we’re happy to help!
