Atlanta Arbor offers great prices on your stump grinding needs by utilizing industry-leading equipment. Our self-propelled stump grinder which will fit through openings as small as 36”, but is large enough to accomplish large jobs quickly. This machine is the most cost effective way to remove stumps.
Stump grinding is when a machine about 3′ wide and 8′ long comes to the stump (ours is mounted on rubber tires to minimize damage to your lawn). It has a wheel with sharp teeth that grind the stump into fine mulch. Stumps are ground 4-7″ below ground level. When we leave the mulch from the stump is raked back into the hole where the stump was and in the place of a stump you have a small bed of mulch. We do offer services to remove the mulch but that service is an extra charge.
The general rule of thumb for stump grinding is $75 for the first stump or as a minimum for the service. It is hard to gauge prices without viewing the stumps or speaking with a specialist, so it is always best to call first and speak to one of our arborist consultants before you try to determine a price. Root balls can be in excess of $200-$300 a piece depending on size and mass of critical root zone.
