The remains of a removed tree on your property is an unsightly view. If you decided to finally remove that stump on your property, you may also be thinking about the cost of the tree service. The task can be difficult and it would be better to search for a stump grinding expert. However, the question is, how much would you be spending on stump removal?
Depeding on the company providing the service, the cost may differ as they consider the location, the types of trees to be removed and their sizes. The stump grinding service may go around $60 to $800 depending on the type of job being done.
Factors considered for service cost
Most businesses differ in rates although there may be some similarities. Some companies can charge per diameter while some can charge per hour. Better check which of the two you prefer before you schedule an appointment with them. You should also be aware that a couple of factors can affect the cost such as:
The work that needs to be done. Choose between grinding or removing.
Location. The cost for the grinding can go up if the location of the stump is more difficult to access.
Size. Larger stumps are more expensive than smaller ones since smaller ones are easier to remove than large ones.
Root system. The more complex the root structure is, the more time and labour would be needed to do the job which could add to more cost.
You can get stump grinding quotes before you hire the company. As their services may differ, you can always ask for a quote from a specialist to make sure that you are on the right budget.
