Our Boca Raton stump grinding company loves trees! However, we are not the biggest fans of stumps. Trees are beautiful beasts of nature. This is because they offer shade and provide privacy and they even clean the air we breathe. We also feel that it’s such a tragedy when a tree has to be cut down. However, we know that there are even some tragedies that sometimes need to happen. The reasons that these tragedies need to happen could include:
As you can see, there can be many reasons that a tree will need to be removed in your yard. However, what happens when you get this tree removed by a professional?
You should be aware of the fact that if you hire a professional company or service to cut down and haul away your tree; they will most likely just leave the leftover stump behind. The bid that you receive from a landscaper will give you the price for removing a tree. This bid will not include the price of removing the stump. This is due to the fact that the stump removal is much more labor intensive which is, of course, more costly. If this has happened to you, then we can help. Our professional team can come out to your home and remove this unsightly stump for you. Better yet, if you hire our team to remove a tree from your yard ask us about removing your stuff as well.
There are some cases where you may be able to let the stump remain in your yard. You may even be able to incorporate your remaining stump into the landscaping design. On the other hand, there may be times that this leftover stump will pose a logistical problem. These logistical problems can include:
If you are facing the above mentioned problems, then you’ll need to take care of it. And this is when the situation can become mighty difficult.
Removing a stump can be difficult due to the fact that tree roots are epically huge. For this reason, the stump is almost impossible to dig out. This is why your best bet is to grind the stump down using a tool known as a stump grinder. A stump grinder can either be a solo power tool or an attachment used on another piece of equipment. In either case, the tool utilizes a rotating disc-shaped blade to chip away pieces of the stump and roots until it’s completely level or even concave in the ground. This can be a difficult task for you to complete alone. Let us help!
If you are not ready to hire a professional service, then you should know that you can rent a stump grinder for between $100 and $200 per day, depending on different factors such as:
Keep in mind that if you only have one stump to remove, it may actually make more sense (cost wise) to hire a professional. This is because a professional service will probably only charge around $75-$150 per stump removal. This cost will be dependent on the size of the stump. As you can see a professional may be the most inexpensive choice for removing a single stump. On the other hand, if you have a few stumps to tackle, renting the equipment and making a day out of it can certainly save you some money.
If you are going to be renting a grinder, you will need to find out if they deliver or if you will need to pick it up. You will also need to make sure that you have other items as well. Other items that will be needed will include:
Lastly, once the job is done, you’ll need to dispose of the tree stump remains.
At the end of the day, it is important to remember that removing a tree and its subsequent stump does not have to be difficult or terribly expensive. You will just need to be sure that you complete your research and understand your options. If you know that you cannot complete the job by yourself then be sure to contact our Boca Raton stump grinding company today!
