How to measure your stump

The number of inches across the base is the number we need. Stumps are a little like icebergs with more below the surface than above. For a more accurate estimate, measure your stump at the widest point where it intersects with the ground – “root flair to root flair.” When providing us with information on the size of stump being ground or removed, you should measure at the base of the stump as shown in the illustration below.


*Stumps over 36 inches increase by $1/inch, and very large stumps (over 5 feet) can be more. While the vast majority of stumps are priced standard, we occasionally charge more for: Difficult Access (stairs, steep slopes), Difficult Surrounding Landscape (stumps grown around stakes or fence posts, very rocky soil, next to a object, or in delicate surroundings), Overall Height (chainsaw cut is an additional charge if you have a tall stump.)

** Standard Service specifications: stump is removed 8-12″ below grade, resultant mulch is replaced and mounded 2-3” above grade to allow for settling & decomposition. Residual mulch is piled for property owner to re-incorporate into landscape (Standard Service) or hauled away at additional cost as described above (Complete Service.)
