What does it cost to have a stump removed?
The average cost of stump rivals is around $250 to $600. On complicated projects, it can go as high as $700 to $800 depending on the procedure’s complexity and the amount of work required to remove the stump.
If you’re looking to reduce expenditures, you can do the stump removal DIY style. All you need to do is rent out a stump grinder and some necessary tools such as a shovel. The rental charges for grinders usually range from around $50 to $150 for half a day. It is important to note that stump grinding is different from professional removal. You’re only removing the trunk itself when you grind it, leaving the roots of the tree still embedded in your yard.
Pricing in stump removal is pretty stable and does not change much, but there are instances when a project requires more planning and effort to be finished. The following factors may increase the cost of your project.
Species of the tree
How old is the tree
The current state of the soil/ground
The circumference of the stump
The location of the stump
Most often, professionals measure the tree’s diameter and charges based on how long it is, usually around $2-$4 per inch. Of course, removing an enormous stump requires more effort and time, making it costly compared to a smaller one.
