Once a tree is cut, the trunk is mulched and removed or cut into smaller logs or blocks for additional purposes, but the roots remain in the ground. Without leaves, the cut tree cannot produce food for its root growth. The ground cavity left after removing a tree stump will generally be 2 to 3 feet deep and 5 to 15 feet wide, depending on the size of the tree. The extension of the roots will be approximately the same as the diameter of the crown of the tree.
This space should be filled with new soil after as much waste material has been removed from trees as possible. After grinding the roots of the tree, the soil will be very soft, and you will see a depression where the tree once stood. The process of grinding the roots also loosened the soil below ground level. It is not a good idea to plant a tree in the same place because of the remnants of the root system of the old tree and the presence of deteriorated or rotting wood.
If you want to plant another tree, you should place it far from this area. If you are going to plant turf in this area, you will need to add additional soil to this depression, let the soil settle until it is level with the rest of the lawn, and then plant grass or place the lawn where the tree once stood. If the company that removed the tree does not remove the stump, you will have to make arrangements for this to be done. Extraction of the stump usually involves grinding the stump, which leaves a large amount of wood chips.
In some cases, these wood chips are left in the yard around the space where the tree was planted. It will be necessary to remove the shavings in order for the grass to grow back in that area. Splinters can fill the hole where the stump was, you'll have to dig them up with a shovel. The big tree you just removed has left a much larger footprint than the stump it left behind.
There will still be roots underground, and the soil will lack adequate nutrients for the new plants or trees that replace old ones. You have to do some preparatory work. Usually, it is also better not to plant the new tree in exactly the same space, especially if the old tree was somehow sick. There are times when budgets don't allow the complete removal of a tree stump, and that's when many homeowners get creative.
A tree stump can take years to decompose, and hiring someone to come and take care of it later will likely make the project much more expensive than including it in the original tree removal. Despite having removed the tree, ground the stump and removed the root system as much as possible, you may still notice a piglet growth on the remaining roots. They can help with everything from identifying the best route to go down the tree to selecting what to plant after removing it. Keep in mind that the extraction of a large, dead tree should only be tried if you are completely comfortable with everything in it.
The cheapest option may not include everything to completely remove the tree and stump from your property. In addition, these trees steal nutrients from plants located near them, causing damage to other trees. However, once the work of cutting the tree is done, you may wonder what happens to the roots of the trees when the tree is cut. The roots of the trees will die after grinding the stump, but they would already be dead after the tree was removed.
The soil is usually excessively acidic after removing a tree, especially if the tree was in that place for an extended period of time. After the removal of such large trees, rainwater usually penetrates deep into the soil where the tree was originally. When the trees are removed from the ground, there will be a lot of sawdust and mulch, and possibly fragments of tree roots, left in the space where the tree was. The best way to make sure your garden recovers after removing a tree is to let your landscape designer handle the work.
