A number of factors can affect the total price, including stump size, project completion time, and trunnion type. This process leaves a large hole in the ground and requires considerably more time and labor than stump grinding. Therefore, you need to decide whether to grind or remove the stump or make it a decorative element in your yard. Size is also an important factor in the cost of stump removal because a large stump will have an equally large root system.
Since there are many stump grinding services, it is essential to determine the best one based on availability and cost. A stump grinder is used to cut the tree, and the small chips that remain can be discarded, used as mulch, or put back into the hole left after grinding. It might cost more at first, but imagine how much more expensive it would be to rent a stump shredder first and hire a professional after you can't remove a stump successfully. Professional stump removal services that offer tree removal may charge an additional fee for stump removal because the work requires different equipment and often must be performed by a subcontractor.
For an old tree with a large root system or one that is embedded in very hard soil, grinding the stump to ground level may be more profitable than removing it. The stump grinding service can remove debris with a fee, but you can reduce costs by doing the work yourself. This is a faster, less invasive and often less expensive process than removing the stump, which removes the stump completely. If the grass grows above the stump and someone else cuts your garden, they may wake up abruptly when they accidentally hit the stump.
A yard looks neglected and unkempt with stumps left in place, especially if those stumps grow shoots or harbor weeds and fungi. The fact that the tree stump or remaining wood chips are removed from the property will generally increase the overall costs of removing the stump. Usually, older and smaller stumps require less extraction time and may be priced differently than younger and larger stumps.
