Why You Should Remove Your Tree Stump

There are several reasons you should consider removing a tree stump. The most superficial reason is that they are unsightly. Having a tree stump or a dying tree in your yard makes it look shabby and unkempt.

As well, your decaying tree stump can attract wood-eating pests, such as termites, beetles, and other decay-loving insects. These pests can damage the healthy parts of your lawn. Also, they can promote the growth of fungi, which can damage your property and is dangerous to your pets and children. 

Besides damaging your yard and health, tree stumps are dangerous, as someone can trip over them. Especially if your stump has exposed roots, they can easily trip a child running through the yard. For everyone’s safety, it’s best to remove the tree stump.

How To Remove the Stump

There are multiple ways to remove your San Mateo County tree stump that you should consider before deciding which method works best for you. Luckily, you can do most of these on your own with some tools and a local dumpster from 1-877-DUMP-PRO. You can burn the stump, use chemicals, and remove it with a chainsaw and stump grinder.

It’s important to make sure you can burn a tree stump in your city before choosing the burning method. To burn the stump, you must first drill holes into the wood and insert kerosene in the holes.

Then, all you need to do is ignite the stump and watch it burn. You should always make sure you don’t leave the fire unattended. Once it’s finished burning, you can cover the fire with topsoil.

To remove a tree stump with chemicals, you will first have to use a chainsaw to trim away as much of the tree stump as possible. Know that, while this method does not require a lot of labor, it can take up to four weeks before you see results. Like the burning method, you will need to drill holes into the stump.

You must fill the holes with water before adding the chemical, potassium nitrate. Now is the waiting game—you will have to wait three weeks for the chemicals to cause the stump to rot. After it rots, you can break it apart with an ax. Remember that whenever you use an ax or chainsaw, you must wear goggles to protect your eyes.

Finally, you can remove the stump with a chainsaw and stump grinder. If you’re OK with putting in the labor, this is a quick and inexpensive way to remove the tree stump. You will need to wear goggles, gloves, and steel-toed boots to protect yourself for this method.

You must first use a shovel to move the dirt around the stump and expose its roots. Next, you must cut away as much of the stump as possible before you can pull out the stump grinder. With the stump grinder, you can grind away the exposed wood slowly, removing any roots as you see them. Afterward, fill the hole with wood chips or sawdust before covering it with topsoil.

Things To Consider When Renting a Dumpster

After you have chosen one of these methods to remove your tree stump, you need to consider getting a dumpster rental. There are several factors you should think about before you call a company to rent one. Think about how big of a dumpster you will need.

Are you removing a small stump, or are you taking down a diseased tree? How much construction debris has to be removed will determine which size dumpster you need? And will the dumpster service be charging a flat rate or be charging by cubic yards.

You also must consider how long the rental period will be. Plan out your stump-removal project beforehand, so you can estimate how long you will need the local dumpster. If you are removing your tree with chemicals, you may only need it at the end of your project, as you won’t start breaking it apart until it’s rotted. To remove the stump with a chainsaw, you may need to rent your dumpster for several days, depending on how quickly you can remove it from the ground.

Finally, you should make sure you don’t need a permit to rent a dumpster. Most cities won’t require that you have a permit for a dumpster rental, but it’s always safest to check with San Mateo County laws first.

Some information about Pacifica, CA

Pacifica is a city in San Mateo County, California, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay.

Before European settlers arrived, Pacifica was home to two significant Ohlone Indian villages: Pruristac located at San Pedro Creek near present-day Adobe Drive, and Timigtac on Calera Creek in the Rockaway Beach neighborhood.

Pacifica is the location of the oldest European discovery of the San Francisco Bay. An expedition led by Gaspar de Portolà sighted the bay by climbing the hills of Sweeney Ridge in Pacifica on November 4, 1769. Before then, earlier Spanish maritime explorers of the California coast Juan Cabrillo and Sebastian Vizcaino had missed the San Francisco Bay because heavy fog so frequently shrouded its entrance from the Pacific Ocean (the Golden Gate). Sighting the San Francisco Bay accelerated the Spanish colonization of Alta California because it was the only large, safe, centrally located harbor on the Alta California coast. The Spanish had known about Monterey Bay since the sixteenth century, but, unlike San Francisco Bay, it was too exposed to rough currents and winds to be used as major harbor for their trade between Asia and Mexico. In the Spanish era, Pacifica was the site of the San Pedro Valley Mission Outpost (1786–1793) of Mission Dolores. That was dissolved when a newly independent Mexico secularized the mission system. Pacifica is also the site of the still-extant Mexican-era Sánchez Adobe, built in 1846. The city is located on a part of the Mexican land grant Rancho San Pedro given to Francisco Sanchez in 1839.

During World War II, the area around the present-day Sharp Park recreational area held the Sharp Park Detention Center, an INS processing facility for Japanese Americans, Japanese nationals, and other ‘foreign enemies’ during Japanese internment. The Stanford professor Yamato Ichihashi spent six weeks in Sharp Park. He described the facility, writing, ‘The ground is limited by tall iron net-fences and small in area; barracks 20′ x 120′ are well-built and painted outside and inside and are regularly arranged; there are 10 of these for inmates, each accommodating about 40, divided into 5 rooms for 8 persons each; if double-decked (beds), 80 can be put in.’
