Here’s an interesting article talking about removing trees and stumps from your property.
What I find interesting is the idea of a homeowner or propery owner buying a chain saw and other tools and equipment and taking down a tree. That could be a very dangerous thing for an untrained person to do.
Considering the amount of expense and risk involved… that includes renting a stump grinder… it does make more sense to hire a professional stump grinder with the proper tools. You will actually save money and eliminate the risk.
At NCstumpgrinder.com we have all of the tools, are licensed and insured, and offer very reasonable prices. We have tons of happy customer references and would love to hear from you.

Look Into Tree Cutting And Stump Grinding
Real Estate & Property
If you have a dead tree or stump in your yard, or just one that you need or want to get rid of, then you need to know a little bit about tree cutting and stump grinding. This is something that you can do yourself or you can hire someone to do it for you. There are many companies that offer this service for a small fee.
If you want to take care of these things yourself you will first need a chainsaw to cut them down with. The absolute most important thing to remember is safety. You don’t want anything to fall on electrical wires, your house, your car, you, or someone else.
Once you have all of your personal protective equipment, such as a face shield or goggles, long pants, close toed shoes, and a sturdy pair of gloves, look through your chainsaw manual and read the instructions. Remember to always keep both feet on the ground and both hands on the saw at all times!
If you have cut a tree down and have a stump left you need to get rid of then grinding is the only option. To grind it you can cover it completely with soil and wait for it to decay. You can speed up the process with a commercial product, but it will still take about 3 months. If you do not want to wait that long then you need an actual grinder. You can buy one and do it yourself or you can hire someone to do it for you.
If you do not care to do it yourself, commercial services can take care of unwanted trees and stumps quickly and efficiently. It costs around $100 per stump then $25 to $50 for each additional one after that. If you are unsure of what you are doing or do not want to hassle with doing it yourself, this is probably the best option for you.
If you need tree cutting and stump grinding done and you decide to do it yourself, above all remember to be careful and take safety precautions. If you are not comfortable using a chainsaw or a grinder then definitely hire someone to take care of it for you. This is often the fastest, and even sometimes the most cost-effective strategy.
