How Much Does Stump Grinding Cost?

How Much Does Stump Grinding Cost?

You’re in the market for professional stump grinding services, but don’t know how much it will cost you?

While we’ve previously published an article on how much stump removal will cost you, the focus of this article will be on how much you can expect to pay for stump grinding. We’ll also discuss the factors that influence our quotations and when you should contact our professional team at Affordable Tree Service for assistance.

How Can I Expect to Pay for Stump Grinding? 

It can be difficult to determine exactly how much it will cost for stump grinding services. But on average it will cost you anywhere from a couple of hundred dollars to several hundred dollars.

Factors That Influence The Cost of Stump Grinding Services 

There are several things that we – as professional arborists – take into account when providing you with an accurate quote on stump grinding services. Here, we’ll go through some of the most important factors.

Service You Require

At Affordable Tree Service, one of the things we take into account when providing you with an accurate quote is the type of service you require. This includes things like how long the job will take, where you are located, and the equipment required to perform the stump grinding.

What You Want to Achieve

The finish you are after when we complete the job (i.e. how far you want the stump ground down), and what you want to achieve by investing in stump grinding is also something we consider when providing you with a quote. 

Size of Stump 

Obviously, the size (diameter) of the stump itself will influence how much you can expect to pay. If the stump is smaller, you may pay less, whereas a larger stump could cost you more.

Root System 

Sometimes, the labour involved isn’t focused on the stump itself but the root system. If the root system is complex and affects how we are able to complete the work required of us, it may influence the price. 

Condition of Stump 

Is the stump you need grinding healthy? Or is it aged and infested with pests or diseases? This is definitely something we need to think of when estimating quotes, as it will often affect how we go about the service we provide.

Type of Tree & Number of Trees 

The type of tree you have will influence how easy it is to grind the stump, so is something that will also be taken into consideration when preparing your quote. Additionally, the more stumps you have to remove, the more you can expect to pay.


Access is something any tree removalist or stump grinding specialist will need to consider when giving you a quote for services provided. We need to know that we – along with the equipment required to actually grind the stump itself – can actually get to the area we need to. 

Clean Up 

At Affordable Tree Service, we pride ourselves in leaving your yard in the same condition we found it. But the amount of clean up will influence the duration of the job, so may affect the price.
