Getting my tree back to life

I have a really beautiful old olive tree in my backyard. I love sitting under it on warm summer night. Unfortunately, the tree got a bit of a knock from the truck that brought in our swimming pool this summer, and it has been looking quite sick ever since and hasn't had any olives yet this year. I am very attached to the tree, so I have got a guy from the tree service company making weekly visits to give it extra fertilising and trimming to try to promote growth. This blog is all about nursing a sick old tree back to health with help from a tree service company.

On the other hand, pruning a tree's roots can prevent them from overgrowing into sewer lines and creating plumbing problems. Some roots can grow into sidewalks or landscaping features and create an unappealing look at your backyard.

How to Manually Remove a Tree Stump

Cutting down a tree by yourself can seem like a daunting experience; however, it is relatively simple compared with the task of removing the stump.

However, it's entirely doable if you have the right tools and techniques and plenty of patience. While there are various methods of removing tree stumps, the quickest and most inexpensive way to do it, providing you have only one stump to remove and your tree is on the small side, is manually (if you have a few stumps to remove, it may be worth renting a tree grinder and doing it that way).
