KC Tree Service Kansas City

Affordable Stump Grinding and Removal

When you have done some tree removal in your yard, stump removal usually follows. Homeowners wouldn’t want to keep a stump sitting in the middle of their yards because they can be home to destructive insects like ants, termites, and wasps. Also, stumps can be hazardous to people strolling around your landscape and cause tripping accidents. If you have an ugly and dangerous stump in your yard, give us a call, and KC Tree Service will come to your aid immediately.

Contrary to what others think, stump grinding is an inexpensive way of getting rid of a stump. Other homeowners choose to have an artist carve art out of the stump, but it can come with a price. With stump grinding, you can get rid of that unsightly stump efficiently and at an affordable price. You are still free to decide which you think is more desirable for your yard. However, it is highly recommended to remove the stump right after the tree has been eliminated.

After receiving a call from you, we will send our tree expert to your property to offer you an estimate and go over your options whether to ground or completely remove the stump. We have prepared a comparison of the advantages of grinding and removal for your reference.

Which One- Stump Removal or Grinding?

Stump Removal:

  • Requires digging up the entire stump together with the root structure near the surface of the ground

  • Requires some amount of back fill to fill the hole that will be left by the stump removal process

Stump Grinding:

  • Necessary use of a stump grinder to mill the stump below ┬áthe ground
  • Results to a heap of wood chips, depending on the size of the tree
