Unfortunately, old stumps don't always make the best playground, as it is very easy to fall off or fall over them, receiving some serious bruises and scratches, and possibly even more serious injuries.

By just going ahead and having that old stump removed, however, you can eliminate this avenue of injury for your kids and their friends entirely.

Eliminate Infestations

There are all number of pests that would love nothing more than to make that old stump in your yard their home, especially if the stump itself is rotting or decaying, and while that might not concern you over much, it can quickly become a larger problem for your home if those invading pests make their way over to your home after getting tired of the stump. Ants, termites, beetles, and a number of other pests can easily make the transition from your old stump to your home, and if they do, you could have a much more expensive issue on your hands than just removing an old stump.
