The stump can be very difficult to displace because it is usually deeply rooted in the earth. The difficulty of displacement is dependent on the species, size, and age of the tree in question. Thankfully, Senske knows exactly how to grind a stump while causing minimal damage to property grounds. Stump grinding is the final solution for a complete removal service.

<h2>Common Tree and Shrub Pests</h2>
<h3><a href="https://senske.com/learn/tree-shrub-disease/spider-mites/">Spider Mites</a></h3>
There are different types of mites that feed on trees. The most affected tree by mites is the maple tree. Eriophyid mites live in the bark of maple trees and feed off of its leaves. Spider mites also feed off of the foliage of maple trees. They are able to suck the nutrients out of leaves with their piercing mouths, causing most aesthetic damage to the tree.
There are many species of aphids that can be found on trees and shrubs alike. Aphids can multiply quickly, feeding on your plants and making them sick. Senske can help you get rid of aphids and enjoy a healthy yard again.
<h3><a href="https://senske.com/learn/tree-shrub-disease/scale-insects/">Scale Insects</a></h3>
Scale insects latch onto branches and twigs, burrowing in. There are soft-shelled and armor-shelled scale insects that are both common. When scale insects swarm a tree, they often look like glistening scales, hence their name. Don't let scale insects ruin your trees!
<h3><a href="https://senske.com/learn/tree-shrub-disease/borers/">Tree Borers</a></h3>

<h2>Other Tree Pests</h2>
Worms love fruit; if you don’t protect your trees, worms will inevitably be inside of the fruit that your trees have bore. There are many different types of fruit worms: apple maggot, cherry fruit worm, codling moth. Each type of fruit tree requires a specific spraying schedule.
<h3><strong>Cherry Bark Tortrix</strong></h3>
The cherry bark moth starts out as a caterpillar and turns into a brightly-colored moth. In the larvae stage, this insect builds tunnels in the bark and creates external reddish-orange cocoons. It damages tree bark by feeding off of nutrients that would be going to the tree and by introducing other insects that feed off of the cherry bark tortrix. Tortrix moths, also known as leafrollers can cause a lot of damage to fruit trees, especially cherry and apple trees.
Root weevils are troublesome for many different shrubs, especially broadleaf evergreens, including house plants, strawberry plants, rhododendrons and azaleas. Root weevils are most destructive in their larval stage because they feed on roots. However, adult root weevils can also be destructive by feeding off of the plant’s leaves.
There are more than 160 identified types of lace bugs in North America. Although Azalea lace bugs weren’t a large problem until 2012, they’re now widespread. They feed off of the foliage of shrubs and trees, by sucking the sap out of them. They leave trees and shrubs looking discolored.
Six out of twenty-six species of tent caterpillars affect North American trees. Tent caterpillar are the larvae of moths and they cause deforestation in multiple types of trees. The larvae of moths and butterflies that eat your plants are often referred to as pest caterpillars. There are many species of caterpillars and they are extremely destructive.
These tiny insects burrow into the fleshy parts of leaves. Leaf miners leave behind scribbly patterns on leaves as a result of their tunneling. A large-scale infestation can ruin the appearance of trees and make them sick.
