There are several ways to remove a stump. Some people drill holes and add a chemical and try to speed the decay of a stump. Others hire a backhoe or excavator and are left with a massive hole and a sizable fee for dumping the stump. What we recommend is grinding the stump approximately 6 to 8" below the grade of the surface then just add topsoil and seed. If you do decide to have Minnechaug perform the removals, there will always be a discount for Stump Grinding.
