How Much Does Stump Grinding in Toronto Cost?

Stump grinding is an efficient and cost-effective way to remove unwanted tree stumps from your yard. The cost of stump grinding in Toronto is dependent upon the size of stump. Typically, you can expect to spend a minimum of $150 for stump grinding and removal, with the cost increasing as the size of stump increases. If you have a stump in your yard with a 36-inch diameter, for example, more time (and a larger grinder) would be required, and the price would reflect that.

Once a stump is removed, you will need to decide what to do with the remaining hole. Many homeowners enlist our help to remove the mulch created during the grinding process and fill the hole with new soil. If you are interested in these reclamation services as an addition to stump grinding, be sure to let our team know so we can provide you an accurate estimate.

How Does Stump Grinding and Removal Work?

Create a stump

Obviously if you want to remove a tree stump…you need to remove the tree on the stump first. Local Arborist can safely grind and remove any size stump.

Clear area around stump

It is important to make sure any rocks or other objects are fully cleared away before grinding begins to prevent any damage or injury from flying debris. We also ensure that we locate all the appropriate underground utilities and communication wires before work begins.

Choose best grinder for the job

Local Arborist has several grinder options for any size stump.

Grind away!

Stumps are ground up to 2 feet beneath the surface of the ground and the hole created is backfilled with the wood chips created during the process. It is your choice after that what kind of landscaping you would like to do.

Good communication and responsive to our emergency call having a large tree fall on the roof. They were very timely in their work and pricing was very reasonable. They were very precise in their work and cleaned up any after math of the removal. Highly recommend!! And would use their services again.
Claire InSync
Extremely happy with the service provided to grind a large stump. Very professional. Excellent communication and the best experience I encountered in this industry. Cleanup was also done even though I was willing to handle it myself in this case. Will use them for any future tree related work. Highly recommended.I will refer this business to others because like others I have been fooled by other company high ratings only to receive horrible service, added costs and more work for me. This one is authentic. I had bad experiences and poor follow through with too many other businesses.

Allways Service was professional, friendly and efficient. Extremely happy with their service.I got a few estimates from different companies and some of them just wanted to make a quick buck and remove an entire tree. Joel listened to our needs and budget and gave a fair estimate for what he could do to make our backyard safe.On the day of the job Joel and Shawn did an amazing job planning their work, trimming the trees and making our backyard a safe space for our daughter. I really admire what they do climbing so high up in the the trees and the skills required to do so. I highly recommend them and would use them again.They are the home tree service you didn’t know you needed until you’re dodging falling branches.

We had two large stumps from a double oak that we needed to have cut further and ground down. The owner (Marian) explained the process clearly and gave a detailed quote, and a week later his stump grinder, Yora, did the job quickly and efficiently, despite running into some unexpected problems. Surprisingly, there was a large chuck of metal bar between the two stumps which dulled his chainsaw blade, in addition to a number of rocks, but these didn't stop Yora, and now we have clear ground and a pile of sawdust where the stumps were. He also spread some of he sawdust under our spruce trees. I would highly recommend this company.
Robert Scavone
I think Toronto's the best tree services company after I compare six companies. Super high service quality, take care of customers' feelings, with protection pad as far as possible to protect the lawn, after the completion of the cleaning, is very clean. The team was very professional, efficient and dedicated. Awesome team.If I have tree services in the future, I will not hesitate to invite their team.I highly recommend this company.
It was a positive experience in every way. Quality work at a reasonable price. I recommend them without reservation.
Tiit Leinveer
Marian and his crew were amazing to work with from start to finish.They arrived on time, worked flat out, cleaned up beautifully, and charged a very reasonable amount for the work they did on the huge tree in my backyard.I would highly recommend this company to anyone considering having their tree trimmed or removed.

Keith Karunanayake
We lost part of a large maple in the big May storm with half the tree on my garage and half precariously standing. Entwined in the standing portion were phone and cable wires for many families on the street.We called the day of the storm and they answered immediately with an inspection the next day. We had to wait for a couple of weeks for the City to permit us taking down the standing portion hoping it wouldn’t fall on its own, and when they did a crew arrived promptly and carefully removed the tree without touching a single wire!The whole operation was complete in three hours, and they even swept the back yard and the roofs of two garages.The service was extremely professional, timely and it was the best quote we received. I can’t say enough about the service.

Do I have to locate underground utilities prior to stump grinding?

Yes, all underground utilities need to be located. Local Arborist takes care of this important step prior to beginning any work, so you do not need to worry. You are responsible, however, to clearly indicate any in-ground sprinkler or irrigation systems.

Will a tree stump regrow if it is not removed?

Depending on the species of tree, it is possible for regrowth to occur if there is still viability in the root system.  Stump grinding and removal is the best way to ensure that regrowth will not occur.

How deep does stump grinding go?

The maximum depth the equipment reaches when performing stump grinding services is 2 feet, with 10-12 inches being the average. Grinding to the maximum depths is only required if a new tree is going to be planted in the exact same spot.

What happens after stump grinding is complete?

The hole where a stump was located after stump grinding is first filled back with wood chips. To keep your costs down, we typically leave the wood chips created from stump grinding on your property as they can be used in many ways – from landscaping mulch to compost material.
