    Nope....I grind stumps for a couple tree services co. in my area and they actually cut two trees on this property. The other tree was about 2/3 this size. The tree of the stump in the photo was massive. Took the very experienced tree crew 1 full day on both trees.

    That one photo don't really give all the angles. The area I had to grind was huge because of the surface roots and the tree had protruded out of the ground about a foot. I actually had to grind about 2 foot down to get the proper grade so the stump would cover up good.

    I done the big stump (1:45), another stump about a 1/4 that size and 5 rotten pine stumps for a total job time of 3:30 min. Actual grind time was about 2:45 min. The Job paid me $350.00.

    The job didn't pay that well but the tree guy also feeds me the gravy. I take the good with the bad as long as im gettin it.

    $350.00 for under 3 hours doesn't sound all that bad.....:D

    Every last piece went straight to the dump. It had limbs larger than most trees.....All to the dump. Butt cut to large for firewood unless you have some major equipment. I'll go by and get an after photo. No mound, no roots, nothing. Looks alot different.


    Customer was stoked.
