About Stump Grinding and Removal
There are two major ways to get rid of a tree stump. The first way is total removal with the use of heavy equipment, particularly, a backhoe. However, this method usually causes damage to the area around it. The second way is by grinding the stump using a stump grinder. Stump grinding will not entirely remove the stump but will eliminate the visible parts of it. Complete removal of a stump is typically done for foundation work, like in building roads or houses.
Stump grinding is easily done with the proper equipment, but it can still damage nearby areas. At Bragg Tree Service Fayetteville, we can complete the grinding process neatly and easily. With our premier stump grinder from Morbark or Veneer, there is no job that is difficult for us to do. If there will be any damage to your landscape, we can assure you that it would be minimal to none. We will leave the location ready for sod laying, planting, and landscape plantings.
The level of difficulty of grinding a tree stump depends on factors like age, size, and its species. Pine and cedars take no time to grind. While a new hardwood stump is the most challenging because of the wood fibers. Old tree stumps, especially those that are rotting are easier to grind. Regardless of the age, size, or species of your tree stump, we will be able to remove it.
Never hire a tree service company that is not licensed, bonded, and insured. Safety is still the top priority in any tree service, so only use the service of a trustworthy and reliable tree service company. Hiring an unlicensed and uninsured company is risking yourself to legal and financial liability if an accident takes place in your property.
Stump Grinding and Removal Fayetteville
We follow an organized method in tree stump grinding. The method includes the following:
- We will use a shovel and rake to clear the site of any stones, rock, and other forms of debris to make the process safe and efficient.
- We will reduce the stump to a height that is more manageable for the stump grinder.
- We will then bring the stump grinder into place placing it where the debris will be piled.
- Once the stump grinder is 3 to 6 inches above the stump, we will start grinding it until it is 3-6 inches below the ground.
- Finally, we will clean the site of every kind of debris and wood chips. We can turn the wood chips into compost or mulch if you request it. We can also replant the area, for an additional cost.
The entire process of stump grinding may take up to 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the type of stump it is. Ask us about our multi-stump savings if there is more than one stump you want to get rid of.

The pricing for tree stump grinding ranges from $50 to $500. The size of the stump is the greatest factor in determining the price of the job. The bigger the stump, the more effort and time it requires eliminating it. In addition, the location of the stump can also affect the cost because the challenge it would entail. The age of the tree stump is also a determining factor for the total cost. It is a bit more time consuming to grind a new stump. Also, tree species can also determine the cost. Hardwood species are more challenging to stump, while the softwood species are easier to work on.
