What Happens To A Tree After You Remove It?

Cutting down a tree on your property can be a hard decision, but sometimes it is an essential one. When a tree becomes a safety hazard to you, your family, and your guests, whether due to its falling branches, fragile wood, or disease, it is critical that you cut the tree down. After the tree is removed, you may find yourself wondering what happens to the tree after it is cut down and taken away. The industry experts at Mass Bay Tree are here to answer your questions about what happens after the tree is removed:


What Happens To The Trunk?

Once the tree has been cut down, the tree service company you hired will turn the trunk of the tree into mulch, or it may be repurposed into smaller logs or blocks.


What Happens To The Roots?

When a tree is cut down, the roots remain in the ground. However, without leaves, the roots that are left, do not have enough nutrients or food to continue to grow. However, there is a slight chance that the roots of the tree might have just enough nutrients left to allow aid in the growth of sprouts. If by slight chance a sprout grows enough leaves from the left behind nutrients, it can eventually grow back into a tree. If there is a lack of nutrients and a tree doesn’t create sprouts, the roots will ultimately decompose.


Does a Tree Stump And Its Roots Need To Be Removed?

Deciding whether or not you want to remove a stump is completely up to you. Tree stumps have pros and cons, as they can potentially be hazardous. Check out our blog post on stump grinding vs. stump removal, to determine which is a better option for you and your property.
