Stump Removal Prices

If you’d like the work to be handled quickly and efficiently, you’ll probably find that professional stump removal is worth every penny. Nationally, the average price for professional stump removal is around $185, and it generally takes about an hour. Professional stump removal companies may charge based on different criteria:
By Diameter– If you are charged based on the diameter of the stump that needs to be removed, you can expect to pay around $2-$3.50 per inch of diameter. Most companies charge a minimum of $75, although stump removal prices can vary on drive time or location of the stump.
By Total Number of Stumps – Many tree companies offer price breaks to customers who have more than one stump that needs to be removed. For example, you may be charged $100 to $150 for the first stump and between $60 and $100 for each additional stump.

Stump grinding pulverizes, rips, cuts, and grinds the remaining tree stump into a pile of sawdust or stump grindings. This is usually performed to a depth of 4 to 8 inches below grade level. Keep in mind that stump grinders can’t cut through steel, rock, asphalt, or concrete without causing sever damage to the machine. The stump removal may be priced separately or as part of the tree removal estimate. Large stump grinding averages $150-$500. Small stumps are about $75. These prices are far less than a stump grinder can be rented for, especially if the machine rented is small and inefficient.

Most professional stump grinding companies pile the stump grindings into a neat mound where the stump was ground and leave them to settle.  The cost of the removal of the stump grinding wood chips and dirt mix can be an additional cost that can range from $60-$500. There are other industry professionals that you might want to get a price from for this work of the stump grindings, such as a landscaper.
A uprooted stump from a tree that was blown over can cost quite a bit more depending on how much dirt it raised from the ground, how tall it is and the necessary equipment that it will take to remove it. These stumps that are uprooted can range anywhere from $200-$1500.
