Stump Grinding & Removal

Although cutting down a tree may seem like a major project, it’s actually straightforward when compared with grinding or removing a stump. Stump removal is a lot more involved, which is why it’s not usually included in the cost of tree removal. It’s also why many people have old stumps in their yards. Stump removal isn’t easy, but it is doable.


Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is a procedure used to grind a stump down 4″-8″ below the surface of the earth. Most of the mulch created is then raked and blended in with the surrounding landscape.

Stump grinding is often cheaper than a complete stump removal because it doesn’t involve digging, cutting away roots or hauling away the trunk.

Stump Removal

In a full stump removal, the stump must be dug out of the ground and its root system must be cut before it can be removed. This option is much more labor intensive, especially if the stump is to be completely removed from the premises once it has been extracted from the ground.
