Were over and beyond professional, including to an elderly neighbor.
Arrived on time, performed the work without damaging anything. (I have a small lot and the tree was extremely close to my house, so this was a tricky situation), cleaned up the debris and sawdust including using the leaf blower to blow sawdust off my roof. The stump removal was extremely thorough. You can’t even tell there was ever a tree in that spot. Thank you so much!!

Excellent work- they were quick to contact me after providing a quote. I needed 3 trees trimmed, 5 trees and an additional stump completely removed. They performed the work that I asked them to very quickly and left the yard/trees looking clean. You could not even tell that there use to be trees/stumps in the ground after their team had them removed. All the yard waste was hauled away

Questions About Stump Grinding

We’ve put together the answers to some of the most common questions we get.

Hiring the right tree care company is critical to ensuring the health and safety of your valuable trees. 

When evaluating a tree care company:

  • Verify that they have workers’ compensation and liability insurance. Ask for Certificates of Insurance, and call their insurance company to make sure the policy is current.
  • Check their reputation. Ask for references and check online ratings. 
  • Be sure you understand the work to be done and the cost to complete the work.
  • Be sure they have ISA Certified Arborists on staff. Ask to see their credentials. This designation ensures you that they understand the proper ways to assess, maintain and when necessary, safely remove your trees.
  • It’s usually not necessary to  provide any money up front. Work should be paid upon satisfactory completion of the job.
  • Good tree work is not inexpensive. Be wary of any estimates that fall well below average.

Good tree care is an ongoing process. Hiring a company that you can trust and develop a professional relationship with will ensure your trees get the best care possible. We’ve created a Free downloadable checklist to help you choose the right company. Click here for your Free copy.

It might be tempting to try to grind your own stump to save some money. First and foremost, grinding a stump is a dangerous activity. Using a stump grinder requires training and experience to ensure you are not injured.

Additionally, the cost to rent a grinder – along with the time it will take you – far exceeds what it will cost to have a professional crew come in and take care of it for you.

The cost to grind a stump can vary greatly, depending upon the size of the stump and the conditions of your property. 

We really need to see your stump and your property to give you an accurate estimate.  Be very wary of any company willing to give you a quote over the phone or any type of verbal agreement.

Here are a few things we consider when determining the price for stump grinding:

  • Size of the stump (height and diameter).
  • Ease of access to the property.
  • Dangerous conditions (proximity to power lines, busy roads, etc.).
  • The stability of the stump.

There are some misconceptions about pricing, too. Just because a stump is large, doesn’t necessarily mean high costs. However, the opposite can be true with small stumps in challenging situations.

Although every company has their own ways of pricing, our goal is to be fair to both you and our organization.

Although it is not necessary to remove a stump, it can improve the look of your yard and make it easier to handle home maintenance projects, like mowing.

We have years of training and experience and can safely and efficiently grind even the largest stump.

We can grind stumps any time of year, except when the ground is frozen.

Stump grinding removes the visible portion of the stump, as well as the roots going down about 6-8 inches. There will be roots remaining that are deeper than that, and that extend farther away from the tree. 

While it is possible to remove all roots, it is quite costly, and results in significant impact to the surrounding area. Stump grinding, on the other hand, is affordable and leaves the surrounding area relatively intact.

Their service was absolutely fantastic!
