Is there a reason why the roots grow after a tree is cut down? Is there anything you can do to prevent this from happening? The answer is yes, but you need to understand what happens to your tree before you can prevent it. It is a simple concept but once you realize what happens it will make you realize how important it is to maintain the root system of your tree.
When you prune a tree, you are taking away its roots. You will be cutting away part of the tree. The tree's crown will no longer contain all of the roots. In most cases this will result in the tree looking different. If your tree had a poor quality crown, then you will notice the roots below the tree have more water than the roots you saw previously.
The next question you may ask yourself after a tree is cut down is what happens when the stump is left behind. The stump is left behind by the pruning and will most likely be used as lumber. Once you have used the stump for lumber, the tree will take longer to recover and your tree may even die.
Why does this happen? The roots still exist under the stump. So the roots continue to grow after the stump is removed.
Many times people attempt to remove the stump and yet they do not understand the root system of their tree. It is so important to know about this. This is why you need to have a tree plan drawn up for you.
A tree plan is not something that can be drawn up on your computer. It must be drawn up by a professional. I highly recommend that you find a professional who can help you with your tree removal.
Tree removal professionals know what to do with a tree. They will know where to cut to keep the tree from growing back. The professional will also know what materials to use to pull the roots. They can also help you with the stump after the tree is removed.
The answers to the question: "Why do the roots grow after a tree is cut down?" are almost always the same: trees that have a poor quality crown will continue to grow roots. So to keep your tree healthy and grow back healthy roots you should use a tree plan. Learn more on tree care, here.
