Pricing your stump removal job
"I have a stump in my yard, is it going to cost me a lot to get it removed?"
If you hire a professional Stump Grinding service to take care of stumps that are cluttering your yard you will be paying per inch (the distance across the stump at ground level).
Other pricing considerations are the type of wood the stump is made of, for example soft wood or hard wood, or if the stump is decayed. Travel costs can also be added on.
To prepare the stump for grinding you should have the stump cut off at ground level. Most professional Stump Grinding services will cut the stumps to ground level for an additional fee.
Removal of the mulch that is created during the grinding process can be left for you to spread in your gardens or it can be hauled off by the contractor for an added fee.
Other add-on services include filling the hole after the stump is removed and planting grass.
Discounts are often given for more stumps ground on the same property, or for referrals to your neighbors.
