Here are some tips…
Yes, you can use sections of the tree that are trimmed for firewood. Chat with one of our arborists about what you are wanting when we come out to give a free estimate. Depending on the project we can leave the large pieces of wood behind and even cut them into firewood-sized lengths. Keep in mind that not all wood is ‘good’ wood to burn. Soft wood from trees like pines, cypress, or firs burn fast and create a lot of smoke. Also, know that any freshly cut wood may need to be dried or seasoned for six to nine months before it can be burned.
With proper care and preparation, it is possible to grow grass or other plants where a stump was. Stump grinding is a quick and efficient way to rid of tree stumps however it can cause the soil in that area to be very different from the rest of your yard. This is due to the presence of woodchips, sawdust, old root systems, and other organic materials. The last tree most likely changed the soil and depleted it of many necessary nutrients that young trees and other plants will need. Sawdust can strip the soil of nitrogen which is vital if planting grass in that area. It is also important to know if the previous tree was diseased at all. If it was, pathogens could still be in the soil. Consider planting new trees in an adjacent area, 8-10 ft away. If you decide to plant in the same area the first step would be to remove as much of the sawdust and woodchips as possible (you can always use the debris as mulch in other areas of your yard). You can mix some of the debris with new soil and add some compost for a more balanced environment. Know that planting anything in this area will require a little extra TLC while the new tree or plants get established.
