Stump grinding is usually the final phase in a typical tree removal job. We price stump grinding separately because a few homeowners will have us remove a tree and then leave the stump if it’s not in a high traffic part of their yard or have us grind the stump at some point in the future.
Most homeowners opt to have stump grinding done soon after a tree removal simply because they don’t want to look at a stump sticking out of the ground. A stump in your yard can become an eyesore over time, if it’s in the lawn you have to mow around it every week, and it can be a tripping hazard for you, your family, and your guests.

If you want the stump removed quickly the best, and most efficient, way to do this is to grind out the stump. Then the only real decision to make is if you want to do this yourself or hire a stump grinding service to grind the stump. If you have a day to kill and you want to learn something new you might want to rent a stump grinder, and a trailer to haul it on, and grind out the stump yourself. Keep in mind, however, that grinding your own stump is probably not going to be any cheaper than hiring a stump grinding service once you figure out all the rental fees - much less the time you’re going to invest in this project.
We have invested in multiple types of stump grinders so we have the right machine to do your stump grinding quickly and efficiently. Our stump grinders are self-propelled so there is no need to drive a truck onto your lawn.
