How Much Does Tree Stump Removal Cost?

By: albertaarb - June 24, 2013

The tree stump grinding cost can vary. The cost typically ranges from $60 to $350 per stump. Some companies charge by diameter, and you can expect to pay two or three dollars per inch of diameter. Keep in mind that the vast majority of companies that charge per inch of diameter will charge at least $100.

Many people think that it will be cheaper for them to rent a machine and remove the stump themselves. The cost of renting a stump grinder can range from $75 to $400, depending on the length of time that you rent it. You really will not save any money by removing the tree stump yourself. Furthermore, you will need to either have someone deliver the stump grinder to your home or rent a trailer. That can be very expensive, which is why it is best to call a professional.

Factors Affecting Tree Stump Removal Cost

You should also be cognizant of the fact that there are a number of factors that affect the amount of money that you spend on tree stump removal. Below are some of the factors that will affect the tree stump removal cost:

The Number Of Stumps To be Removed

If you have more than one stump to remove, then you can expect to pay a higher price. The good news is that many companies will give you a discount on the second stump. For example, you may have to pay $100 to get the first stump removed, but you may be able to get the second stump removed for just $30.

The Stump's Age

Older tree stumps are a-lot easier to remove because they are usually rotted. Therefore, if you have an older tree stump, then you will probably spend less money on tree stump removal.

The Type of Tree Stump

Some tree stumps are a-lot easier to grind than others. If the tree stump is easy to grind, then you can expect to pay less to get it removed.

The Type of Soil

It is harder to remove tree stumps from rocky soil. It can also damage the equipment. You will pay more to get the stump removed from rocky soil.

The Root System

If the stump has several roots, then it will take a-lot longer to remove. The longer it takes to remove a tree stump, the more you can expect to pay.


A company can clean up the mess if you like. However, you will have to pay more for them to clean up the mess.
