The easy part is getting rid of the tree. It’s the stump that’s left behind that’s more tenacious. A tree’s roots run deep. While you can buy chemical products to dissolve them, you might have to wait for years before they’re completely gone. For a faster solution, rent a stump grinder. Stump grinders are machines that turn roots and tree stumps into sawdust in minutes – not years.
If you want to remove a number of stumps, you can cut down on the cost significantly. Post a notice on Craigslist or check around the neighborhood to see if anyone else in your area needs stump removal so you can share the rental costs. To get an idea about price, for around $130 a day, you can get this stump grinder model made by Dosko:

When you pick up the stump grinder, make sure you have a trailer or truck of sufficient size to transport it. Some models are quite large, so it would be a good idea to call ahead and ask how much the stump grinder weighs to ensure the trailer or truck can accommodate it.
Before you leave the equipment rentals office, have a technician talk you through the machine’s operation. Don’t be afraid to ask for a repeat demonstration or ask questions. Remember, a stump grinder is a potentially lethal piece of equipment that must be used properly for your safety. When doing the job, wear a hard hat, ear protection, heavy work gloves and goggles.
