It is not a good idea to bury stumps or logs!

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:43 AM by Administrator

For many years, some builders buried tree stumps and logs on the properties where they were going to build a new home.  Those stumps and logs eventually rot out and cause depressions (sink holes) in the ground above the buried items.  It is for that reason that it is now illegal to bury tree stumps and logs.

Last week, we completed the excavation of some buried tree stumps and logs that caused an area in front of our client’s 23 year old home to cave in.  We had to excavate down to the water table to get all of the stumps and logs prior to backfilling.  This is a time consuming endeavor and expensive, thus do not bury and stumps or logs.
