Stump Grinding & Removal
Whether you are having a tree removed, or have an old troublesome stump somewhere on your property, Treemendous Tree can remove the stump.
Cost of stump grinding:
Stump grinding and removal is a straightforward process. A high-powered stump grinder is brought in to literally grind down the stump, 8-12 inches below ground level (sometimes lower, depending on what will be done with the area).
Tree stumps and above-ground roots are a nuisance and are unsightly. At only $4-6 per inch for removal, you don’t have to tolerate them. To estimate removal cost, measure the stump width, but do so from the base of the roots that are protruding above ground, if any (see picture below), since these must be removed as well.
Options we offer for stump grinding are:
Full cleanup. We haul away all the grindings from the stump, and replace with fresh dirt to level out the grade. We can also sow grass seed, so in a month or so, your lawn looks like there was never a tree or stump there. Slightly more expensive, but a very nice finished job, with nothing left to do.
Minimal cleanup. We rake all the grindings back into the stump hole, and pack things down a bit. This leaves a small hump of raked grindings. It will settle over time, but no grass will grow in that spot for a while. This option is not much more expensive than no cleanup.
No cleanup. We grind out the stump, and leave the grindings where they fall, and the stump hole. This option is least expensive, but be aware that cleaning up a load of stump mulch is more work than you’ll expect it to be.
Those ugly roots are more than just unsightly, they are frequently the culprits of cracked foundations, sidewalks and driveways, and damaged underground pipes. Older homes are especially prone to tree root damage, as fine root hairs probe for moisture, find the wet clay-based sewer drainage lines, and work at the joints to break apart pipes.
Therefore, we generally recommend not only the removal of the stump and visible root system, but also application of a root-killing chemical treatment.
