Grinding or Removal
Some tree stumps and their roots must be removed, but most are just ground up where they are.
Grinding is the process of using a mobile machine with a big blade and systematically dicing the tree and roots until it is reduced to a pile of wood chips.
But a grinding machine can’t get to the long roots of an old tree which have pushed underneath a driveway or sidewalk and are creating a problem.
Yanking those old roots out is really a manual process done by one or two people.
Unfortunately, this will be a lengthier and slower task to get done.
How Much Does it Cost to Remove a Tree Stump?
Want to get an estimate?
Job prices are frequently based on how long the task will take to do.
And the primary aspect for figuring out the expected length of the job is the size of the visible stump and the roots.
There can be other issues too. For instance, maybe that stump is alongside some underground water or gas supply lines.
For a more complicated eradication project, cost mainly depends on how difficult it’s going to be to carry out.
If a stump extraction requires only a grinder, it will get finished fairly quickly.
But if it needs extra work, that could add on to the length of time it needs to be finished.
A tree which has just been blown down in a storm is often harder to take care of than a really old stump is.
That’s particularly true if the tree is still partially standing.

Some jobs are done by specialists who’s sole business is extracting old trees.
And the other jobs are taken care of by yard services who do all the other landscaping tasks too.
No matter who you contact, you will get your situation resolved.
This is the Way it Works
Your chosen specialist will put their machine into place and the operator will use it to systematically chip away at both the visible trunk area and the roots.
The process is not over quickly. It depends on the tree, but it usually takes some time to complete.
Eventually, you will own a pile of fresh wood chips.
At the end, there will typically be an impression where the tree once was.
You may want a little new soil.
Your Prospective King County Professional Wants to Know a Few Things
- Is there anything right next to it – like a building or a fence?
- Has the tree been down for a while or recently fallen?
- What is the stump’s diameter?
- Is it on a slope or level ground?
- Is it easy to get to?
- Are there problem roots that go under a driveway or walkway?
Each of these questions might impact the price your contractor may charge.
What About a Rental Machine? Could I Do It Myself?
If you’re thinking about doing it yourself, you could rent a grinder from an equipment rental store near central or south Seattle and take care of it all by yourself.
If you are facing just a small tree, and it’s in a safe place of your yard, you can maybe try it yourself.
But large stumps, massive roots, or any tree which grew on a hill side or slope, those jobs are for the professional remover.
Running a grinder isn’t without risk.
The cutter disk is sharp. It moves quickly and can shoot pieces of bark through the air.
Could There Be Any Other Option of Getting This Done?
If you are not in a rush and you don’t care what the neighbors think, you can apply a chemical to your old tree and wait for it to soften it.
First you get the chemicals, then you drill a great deal of deep holes.
You carefully pour the chemical into those holes. Your purpose is to soften that old trunk up.
You are hoping the chemical will eventually soften the trunk enough that you could break it up with an axe.
Before they made tree grinders, farmers would burn their stumps.
It works, but it isn’t very practical these days.
For various reasons, most property owners in areas like Beacon Hill aren’t considering having a smoldering fire in their yard.
