Once the tree has been cut to ground level or removed, the stump is removed using the stump grinding technique. While performing tree stump grinding, the stump is first grounded using a stump grinder into small pieces. These small pieces are such that they can be used as a ground cover or a mulch.
Just so, where can I rent a stump grinder?
Expect to pay between $90 and $150 to have a 24-in.-dia. stump removed. You can rent a gas-powered stump grinder for about $100 to $190 per day, depending on the size of the machine. Therefore, if you only have to remove a stump or two, you'd be better off hiring a pro.
