Why Should I Remove or Have a Stump Ground?

There are many reasons to remove a stump after the tree has been cut down. Stumps are typically not considered attractive looking and removing the stump will make your property look nicer and provide a safer environment. Stumps present a hazardous situation for your family and kids, or really anyone on your property, especially when they are camouflaged by weeds and grass, and can be the cause of serious injuries. Grinding the stump also helps prevent unwanted growth or insect infestation around the stump. 

Is it Better to Grind a Stump or Remove it?

There are advantages and disadvantages in both removing a stump or grinding it. Removing a tree stump guarantees there are no stump grindings left behind. The disadvantages are that removing all but the smallest stumps usually requires large equipment such as a loader or excavator. In addition, it is usually pretty hard to find a place to dispose of them. Grinding a stump allows us to address almost any stump in any location at a much more reasonable fee. The disadvantage is that stump grinding does leave the ground stump grindings behind. There is an additional fee for us to haul this away.

What is the Average Cost for Stump Grinding in Southwest Florida?

Stump grinding is based on an hourly charge and averages $175 minimum. Anything that makes the stump harder to access such as a fence or retaining wall or anything breakable such as a flagstone patio could increase the price. While you could rent a stump grinder for $300+ per day, it is best to have a professional operate the equipment and ensure the stump is removed completely and properly.

F.A.Q.

These are many of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our customers. Please don’t hesitate to contact Tree West should you have any other questions that have not been addressed here.

Does tree removal include stump grinding or stump removal?

Grinding or removal of the stump is an extra fee and not included as part of our tree removal services. Tree removal estimates are very specific so any extra services such as stump grinding, wood removal, or tree removal permits are not included unless expressly stated.

Can I keep the ground-up tree stump as mulch?

Yes! A ground-up tree stump makes an excellent mulch product.

Does stump grinding kill roots?

No, stump grinding does not kill the tree’s root system. Sometime the roots are actually spurred to grow more due to the shock of having the tree removed and stump ground out.

Will tree stumps attract termites?

Yes, your tree stump could attract termites. But not all termites will necessarily damage your home. It will take an exterminator to determine which kind of termites you have should your stump become infested.

Can a tree grow back from a stump?

Depending on the type of tree, it can grow back but this would not be a tree that you would want to keep as its structure would be compromised which would be likely to fail and damage your property.
