Stump Grinding and Stump Removal Pricing

Call or text: 303-578-0822

Stump removal starting at $149.00!

Our process is better. The techniques we’ve developed over the years allows less wood chips to be left in the soil, resulting in faster revegetation and is $8/inch for most* stumps. Our $149 minimum charge includes one stump up to 16″. We do our best to separate as much mulch as possible and pile it for for property owners to incorporate into their landscape & gardening, or dispose of themselves. This is stump grinding done right (in our opinion.)

Add excess mulch haul away for  $2/inch for most* stumps to leave your yard with a finished look after your stump is removed. (We just need to know before we start work.)

Available on request, we also offer a “grind and go” service priced at $7/inch for most* stumps, which is the industry standard technique used by most other tree and stump removal companies. This service is not available with our mulch haul away service. This technique churns stump and dirt together and is recommended for locations where revegetation is not anticipated. (As wood chips decompose, they absorb nitrogen. The high volume of mulch that is mixed into the soil with this technique competes with vegetation – trees, bushes or grass – for nitrogen and inhibits growth. This is why mulch works for weed suppression.)

All jobs include the State of Colorado required utility locate, and written service agreement.

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 48 inches may 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 area may be 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.)
