Why should you remove that old stump (stump grinding)?

Tree stumps are unsightly and end up being a hazard. More than just an inconvenience, they can also bring and foster pests in your yard and home. A tree stump can serve as the home for many types of fungus and bugs, including ants, termites, beetles, and other wood-boring invasive insects. They can attack and carve out the tree stump, but can also cause significant damage to your lawn, other trees, shrubbery, and even your house. Removing the tree stump deprives them of a foothold on your lawn, providing one more layer of protection for your home.

  • Professional and Affordable stump grinding and surface root removal
  • Cleanup and hauling of resulting mulch

how to measure the stump for affordable  stump grinding

Measure the Stump

Measure the widest diameter (width) at ground level. Include surface roots in the overall measurement if you want them removed too. Typically, stumps should be no more than 6” above the ground or additional charges may apply. A standard grind is about  4″ to 6″ deep.

PRO TIP: Make sure you are measuring at ground level, and NOT the top of the stump.

We hired Jeff to grind/remove two large tree stumps. He diligently worked with our utilities to make sure digging could be safely done in a difficult to navigate area. He was professional, clear with expectations, and extremely responsive with all communications throughout our project. We would definitely recommend Jeff.

Professional Property Services LLC Jeff Weiss was awesome to work with. I called and Jeff answered right away. I explained that I needed stump grinding services and he said he could be there in 10 minutes. Jeff arrived promptly and did a great job explaining what needed to be done and the cost of his services. He came prepared with his grinder and went to work right away. He was very professional, did quality work and cleaned and hauled away all the debris. I would use him again if needed and highly recommend using his services.

Frequently Asked Questions

How deep do you grind stumps?

About 4-6” is standard.

How do I measure my stump?

  • Measure the widest diameter (width) at ground level.
  • Measure the width of the hole you would like to be left with when we are finished.
  • Include surface roots in overall diameter if you want them removed.

How soon can you complete the work?

  • Lead time depends on the season, and is typically measured in days, not weeks.
  • Lead time is shortest in mid-summer and late fall.
  • We can usually make allowances for deadlines and emergencies. Please contact us.
  • Individual stumps typically require minutes, not hours, to remove.

Will your equipment damage my lawn?

  • No, the Carlton SP5014 has a 35″ narrow width and self propelled hydraulics to make it easy to get into tight areas on your property and has large turf tires.  If the ground is hard enough to walk on, it’s solid enough for equipment.
  • In case of extremely wet or soft conditions, I will inspect the site before working and contact you with alternative suggestions.
  • Stump grinding is the most efficient and non-invasive way to remove stumps. What about limited access or fenced yards?
  • No problem.  A path or gate only 36 inches wide is needed through which to drive my equipment.

What about underground utilities (phone lines, cable TV, electric and gas lines, etc.)?

  • If you know of lines buried near your stump, or if you are unsure, please inform us. I will notify Gopher State One Call to have them located and marked.
  • GSOC does not locate private lines, such as sprinkler systems, outdoor lighting, and gas lines to swimming pools or gas grills. Homeowners responsibility to notify of any of these that may be near stump areas.

Will the tree grow back once the stump is ground up?

  • No.
  • The remaining stump and underground roots will eventually decay and change to soil.
