An arborist does many different types of tree-related work, but one of the most common tasks that their clients ask them to do is to cut down a tree for them. Here are some of the reasons why arborists are asked to do this.
Because their client is allergic to tree pollen
Wind-pollinated trees tend to release pollen almost continuously during the warmer months of the year. On windy days, this pollen ends up being blown all around the area where the tree is growing.
If you have an old tree stump in your garden, then you may have decided to let it rot down naturally. If the stump isn't in your way, then it may not bother you too much right now.
However, tree stumps don't necessarily rot away quickly. Even small stumps can last for months, and large stumps may take years to degrade on their own.
Plus, if the tree stumps roots are firmly in the ground, they may still be supplying the stump with some nutrients.
