Stump Grinding Services Near Livonia, MI

When it comes to dealing with unwanted tree stumps, our team of experienced stump grinding contractors here at Tree Service Livonia are the go-to experts.

We utilize the most modern and advanced stump grinding equipment, along with time-tested techniques for efficient, affordable, and safe stump removal in your property.

Whether you have just cut down a tree and need the leftover stump removed, or have an old eyesore stump taking up valuable space, we, as a tree service provider, can get rid of it for you.

Our stump grinding service involves using specialized mechanical grinders to pulverize the wood and roots below the ground, leaving you with fertile soil ready for re-planting grass or other vegetation.

Process We Follow for Stump Grinding

Inspection and Planning

The first step is for our arborist to thoroughly inspect the stump, taking measurements and evaluating factors like location, stump size, tree type, soil condition, access issues, and proximity to structures.

Based on this evaluation, we determine the optimal grinding techniques, the right-sized grinder, and any safety precautions to take. We then provide you with a detailed, transparent stump grinding price quote.

Setup and Preparation

After you authorize our service, we bring all required safety equipment and stump grinding machinery to your site.

For stumps close to any houses, fences, walkways or patios, we may install protective physical barriers and cover the work area with heavy tarps, depending on the situation.

These measures prevent debris and wood chips from getting scattered around. For excessively large stumps, we may cut and remove sections using chainsaws before grinding.

Stump Grinding Process

The core of our work begins here. Our stump grinding experts position and stabilize our powerful, self-propelled grinder machine directly over the stump.

The rotating cutting wheel with rugged teeth is lowered and brought into contact with the wood. As the cutter wheel spins at high speeds, it efficiently chews away all wood and roots, pulverizing them into woodchips and sawdust.

We repeatedly adjust and reposition the cutter wheel until the entirety of the stump is removed down to a predetermined depth, typically 6 in to 12 in below ground.

Clean-Up and Final Touches

We thoroughly clean the work area, collecting all debris and sawdust into our truck for proper disposal. We then backfill the crater and cavity left behind with nutrient-rich topsoil, lightly compacting it.

Depending on your needs and preferences, we can level and smooth out the area or leave it slightly raised for reseeding new grass.

If desired, we will apply grass seed and straw mulch on your reclaimed space. We perform a final walkthrough with you to ensure your absolute satisfaction before we wrap up.

Cost of Stump Grinding in Livonia, MI

Our transparent, market-competitive stump grinding pricing is based on the size, quantity, location and access conditions of your stumps.

Generally, we charge around $3 to $7 per inch diameter, which covers all equipment, personnel, clean-up and stump hole remediation costs.

This equates to approximately $100 to $450 per average stump grinding job. Complex removals of huge, deeply-rooted stumps can cost more. We guarantee the most reasonable rates tailored for your specific needs.

They did an excellent job trimming my tall oak tree that had become overgrown near the power lines. The crew was professional and cleaned up completely afterwards. I would highly recommend their services.

We hired them to remove two old pecan trees in our backyard. Their bid was very reasonable and they took the trees down safely. I really appreciated their attention to detail.
