remove stump/root ball of Italian Cypress?
I have a question about Italian Cypress and am not sure where to post, so I'll cross-post in trees.
I have 4 Italian Cypress about 20' tall that need to be removed. Sadly, they have not recovered from spider mite damage.
They are about 1-2 feet from the foundation of my home. Should I have the stump/root ball removed too? Can the rotting roots/wood create any problems if I leave them?
Thanks so much for your help!
