Whether a tree has fallen or been cut down to the stump, the trees roots will still be attached underground. Depending on the kind of tree it is the stump could start to shoot more growth turning into a tree again. All trees have a different root system, the rule of little tree, little root system is not always the case. Some trees can be healthy and other trees can start to decay which would mean the tree needs to be removed.
As a tree grows so does the root ball, when the root ball expands it can be anywhere from 4-10 times the size of the tree. So, in this case it will make for the stump removal a difficult process. Stump removal can involve the root system needing to be cut and digging the bulk of the stump and lifting the rest away with a crane. Once removed there will be a significant hole where the tree once was.
Grinding of the tree stump will eliminate having to dig away. After the tree has been cut down to the ground level, the stump grinding process breaks down the stump into smaller pieces and the pieces can then be used as mulch. When the stump is ground it will usually be below the ground surface. Covering this area with dirt will eventually cause the stump to decay, with the root system around it. Be mindful that any removal of tree trunks could disturb the root system, potentially causing damage to paving or structures near by.
Specialised equipment is required for the task at hand and sourcing the expertise of a qualified professional will see that your tree is removed safely.
Depending on the outcome you want, this will make the decision easier, although the process of stump grinding does take less time or if you are going to plant new trees or gardens, then complete removal may be the way to go.
