Tree stumps can be regarded in a variety of ways - from a complete nuisance to a beautiful carved feature for your garden.
It usually comes down to where the trunk is sited and whether it's in a spacious area which lends itself to a feature or in a small garden where it might cause a tripping hazard or becomes an eyesore.
In woodland, tree stumps can beneficially be left to rot, provided they aren't diseased. Over the years they will be broken down by insects and fungi until they become part of the ecosystem. But not everyone has a patch of woodland so they may have to be dealt with a different way.
In a garden, a large tree stump can sometimes be turned into a seat or clever artists can use a chainsaw to convert an ugly stump or trunk into a beautiful carving, as can be seen in some public gardens where they have birds and creatures peering out from the woods.
But when these solutions aren't practical or are too costly, it may be better to have the stump removed, which may involve the use of professional machines with larger specimens since tree roots can be vast and very tough to remove.
