There are many differences between stump removal vs. stump grinding, the main one being cost. If you are planning to remove a stump yourself then it is usually a good idea to have a little more information than if you were planning to take the services of a professional.

The cost of professional stump removal is often well worth it, especially if the job is going to be done properly.
