After a tree is removed at the lowest possible cutting point, there is often a large protruding stump left in the ground. This is simply because a saw can only get so close to the ground while still operating safely. A stump that’s sticking out of the ground present hazards for you and your lawn equipment. If the stump is left in the ground, it presents a tripping hazard which may lead to injury. Stumps can also cause damage to your lawn mower. Smaller stumps that can be run over by a lawn mower may cause damage to the blade and other costly mechanical parts.
