I took down a sick tree on Saturday and I am looking for someone to haul the brush, limbs and logs away. There's probably a trailer's worth all together. Nothing is all that heavy, I cut the logs to manageable size.

Anyway if you know of anyone or are interested yourself, let me know. I'm in Holladay, just east of Vanwinkle.

About half of it has a mushy/pulp center and the insects were still partying it up. I got a guy coming today at 3pm. Now I need someone to grind the stump.

Back in the day when we cut down some trees my parents rented a stump grinder from diamond rental and went to town on them. Not sure what something like that would cost now but it might be worth looking into.

Looks like 1 hr = $40, 2 hrs = $80, 4 hrs = $160.

That does seem a lot better than paying someone to come out and do it.
Not too bad! I just got an appointment set and the price is $96 for a 24" tree stump. Mine may be a bit less if it's 20" but I assume it's more than 20" just because of the 20" bar the saw had. Anyway, for $100, I think that's fair. The guy will be in and out of there in a flash, most likely. I may have him do a second, small stump that's in my way when I'm mowing.

Who knows, I may have a good start to catch up to the Hickeys, Nates, and Brysons of the landscape world. :D

It's all done except for removing the piles left behind from the grinder.

I figured I'd give you a breakdown of what I spent. First, two quotes, to drop the tree and remove it, were $350.

I spent:
$50 to rent the saw (which I dropped the tree and trimmed another tree in the yard that had a limb overhanging a neighbor's parking spot)
$135 to remove the tree and some extra from some pruning I did
$168 to remove the main stump and another in the yard
---------
$353 total

I don't consider it a savings but I did get a little more for my $350 doing it this way. Sure, I could have done it all myself and spent less $ by doing it on my own and if it were summer, maybe I would have. But I'm happy with how this all worked out. Thanks, fellas, for your input. I appreciate it.
