What is the fastest way to get rid of a tree stump?
The fastest way of removing a tree stump is stump grinding. When we grind a stump, the stump will be gone after we finish the work, which should be no more than an hour. The other way to get rid of a tree stump, is to use chemicals. The chemicals will be applied to holes drilled in the stump and it will speed up the natural decay process. Eventually the roots and the remaining tree fibers will brake down over time.
How much should I pay for stump removal?
The cost of tree stump removal really depends on the size and type of tree. Here in San Angelo, we have a lot of mesquite, ash and live oak trees. The most difficult trees to remove, will be the mesquite tree.
Ash trees and live oak trees are a little easier to grind or remove.
Of course we have more trees in the San Angelo area than just those three, and all of them have their own difficulty.

How do you remove a stump yourself?
Stump grinding is best done by a professional stump removal company, since it requires skill and it can be dangerous operating heavy machinery. If you want to remove a stump yourself, you best go for the chemical method, where you'll drill some holes in the stump and apply the chemical, potassium nitrate, in the holes. Finishing off with pouring hot water in the holes will speed up the process.
This chemical method will take some time for the stump to be broken down completely.
What is the difference between stump removal and stump grinding?
Stump grinding is the process of excavating the tree stump without removing the roots of the tree. The stump grinder can remove the tree stump until the desired height, which can be at level height or as far as 12 inches below soil level. The stump grinder will leave sawdust behind, and of course, the roots, who will naturally decay over a period of time.
Stump removal on the other hand is the process of completely removing the tree stump, pulling the tree stump out of the ground. This requires a lot of force and eliminates both stump and roots. It also leaves a messy environment as the roots are all being pulled out.
For this reason, stump grinding is the most preferred because it's easier to execute and it is more environmentally friendly.
Stump removal will be a more extensive process and it will be more expensive.
Does insurance pay for tree removal?
No, homeowners insurance does not pay for tree stump removal.
How much does it cost to remove a medium tree?
