Stump Grinding- DIY or Pro?


When it comes to stump grinding, it’s important to first decide what route you’re going to take, since there are generally two options: will you do it yourself, or will you hire a company to take care of it for you? As far as removing stumps from your property, that is entirely your decision. Once you decide which way you’re going to go about removing the stumps, that’s where things get more nuanced. 

If you’re looking to grind a stump yourself, there are many places that offer rental services, where you can select a stump grinder machine for a set number of hours for a fee. You’ll need to transport the machine to and from the location, and will need to ensure that you complete the task within the allocated time rented, or risk being charged for the next time slot. These machines are often old, not very powerful, and on the smaller end, which can make the stump grinding task fairly strenuous and long. Oftentimes it will take longer than the typical rental period is for, which is important to consider, if cost is one of the primary factors in your decision to do it yourself. Often times we’ve found that our services are more affordable than renting a machine and doing it yourself, since we own our machines and aren’t charging by the hour.
