One of the many services we offer is Stump Grinding. The grinding process involves the removal of the entire core which can vary in size and depth depending on the age of the tree and obstacles (if any) in the surrounding area. the next thing they look for are any horizontal roots that are sitting above ground level and grind them too. Once they can no longer see any tree roots above ground, they fill in the hole(s) with the soil-mixed debris that's a product of the grinding process. Then they rake and sweep the area as required to ensure it is aesthetically pleasing and the customer is satisfied.

The average time to grind a stump is around 1 or 2 hours and costs around $120 for one of average size. Prices may vary depending on factors such as size, depth, accessibility etc.
