Over the course of the last few years, my yard has been killing trees. I don’t know why, the trees just die.

Last year I ran into someone at the gas station with a big sign on the side of their truck that said they cut down trees, remove stumps, amongst many other services. I talked with him about getting my stumps removed, and he agreed to come by and give me a quote.  After looking over 9 Stumps he quoted me around $600.  I couldn’t help thinking that’s a lot of money, even just per stump.

I asked him how he planned on getting the stumps out. His response was that he’d have 2-3 guys show up and dig the stumps up. I took his number and said I’d call on him another day if I planned on doing it. The cost was just a bit too much.

This year a guy stopped by the house.  He says he noticed all the stumps in the yard and said he could remove them. $225 for the whole lot. Wow, I jumped on the deal. Less than half the price? I was thinking maybe he had trained monkeys running around or an elephant that would just pull them out with one swift tug.

Having the Right Tool Made the Difference

I followed him out to the yard, and watched him proceed to unload a vehicle with about the same footprint as a smart car.  It was a stump grinder but not one of those hand operated ones even.  You could drive this thing with just a few handles on the side.  The machine proceeds to chew up tree stumps leaving just holes with a mound of dirt beside them, which were then raked back over.

All 9 stumps in about 25 minutes. And these weren’t small stumps.
