Tree Stump Grinding
Removal Costs

 Tree stump removal commonly known as stump grinding is the removal of tree stumps below ground level.

Generally after an arborist has removed a tree the stump will still be remaining sitting above ground.

why might you remove a stump?

  • Building- Quite often when levelling a site stumps can cause a problem.  It’s not only quicker but more cost effective to use a stump grinder.  Digging out stumps is slow and the cost to dump them once out is extremely expensive.  Stump grindings created by the machine can be easily spread around the site or mixed into the soil and disposed of cheaply.
  • Lawn mowing- Lawn mowing around stumps is extremely tedious and annoying. Using a stump grinder to shallow grind just below the surface is a cost effective way to solve the problem.  Generally 100mm below ground is enough in this case.  Once ground a few handfuls  of top solid and a sprinkling of grass seed and you have your lawn back.

  • Re growing stumps- Certain species of tree can be extremely resilient and will grow back even after being poisoned.  Stump grinding this will kill the stump and roots for good stopping any annoying re-growth.

  • Replanting- When needing to replant in most situations we are able to completely remove the stump allowing you to re plant in a similar location.  Stump grinding an area prior to planting also makes the soil easier to dig, speeding up the planting process.

  • Aesthetics-  Sometimes it’s all about appearance and the stump left behind by the arborists is just an eye sore.  We have a range of stump grinders that can remove ANY Stump in ANY location.

What does it cost to grind a stump?

The cost of grinding a stump depends on several factors.  These are:

  • The size of the stump
  • The location of the stump
  • What machine we need to use for the stump
  • The depth we are required to grind a stump down to
  • Foreign objects located in or around the stump such as river stones or waratahs

Due to the factors listed above there is not a set price for stump grinding; all stump removal jobs are priced after a site assessment or photo correspondence.  The price for tree stump removal is not priced per stump but per job.  We offer no obligation free quotes for all jobs, the price is the price and there are no hidden costs.
