There are a couple of good reasons why you should remove a tree stump for good. If you are second guessing on whether you should remove a stump or not, here are some good reasons:
Tree stumps can be a hazard. It is just a matter of time before someone trips over the stump and hurts himself or herself. Imagine your kids playing in the yard and they fall over because of the stump that you have not removed.
Stumps can be a good place for pests. Cockroaches, rodents, snakes, and different insects can inhabit the decaying tree. This can be a perfect shelter for them and can also be a good source of food. If you let them stay in the stump, sooner or later they will also find their way into your home. If you are unlucky and termites also harbour the stump this can easily spread and may start coming to your home too.
Stumps can be a good place for fungi to proliferate. Fungi can live on wood and they can set up camp on the stump as this can be a good feast for them. This can become a serious threat to the trees within the area as these fungal spores can cover the entire place. If one of your healthy trees ended up with a broken branch, the spores can get into the healthy trees wounded branch and may cause further problems.
