Stump grinding would be around $100. That's what I paid for three to four-foot diameter tree stumps.

The pear tree was ~3.5 inches in diameter, and the birch was 5.5-6 inches in diameter.
Yes, my "tree guy" is reasonable in price, which is why I continue to call him, rather than his competitors.

Of course, I could wind up with a surprisingly high price this time around, but more than likely he will still be reasonably-priced in comparison to his competitors.

Those aren't trees, just twigs.

Agreed. You can cut them up with a hand saw if you really get desperate.

agreed.
We had 3 trees removed about 8 years ago, they are definitely more than 6 inches, husband paid $3000, it included stump grinding .I thought it was outrages. When I saw the $250, I wanted to scream at him
No, they didn't haul away the wood.
we are lucky this time, as the tree fell on the road, the town cut the tree but left in our our yard and my neighbor's, we were thinking we may need someone to cut/haul away the wood, but it brought down a power line and after everyone on my street were without power for more than 9 days, they came to haul the tree away so as to repair the power line.

Actually that is probably closer to reality. price/tree goes down the more you have done. They probably charged you $1500 for the first, $1000 for the 2nd and $500 for the third. Just a pain to get the equipement there for one tree

I have a friend that gets all of the free firewood he wants. His friend owns a tree service, and they have to pay to dump the trees (even the ones good for fire wood). So anytime my buddy needs some wood, they are more than happy to dump some on his property

If the tree is dead, ask the town to remove it free

If the tree is located adjacent to the curb, that might possibly work, but I doubt if most towns would actually remove it unless the tree constitutes a road hazard.

On the other hand, if the tree(s) are located in the homeowner's front or rear yards, there is not a chance in Hades that a municipality will provide this service free of charge.

pretty sure if it is adjacent to the curb, it is the town's responsibility to remove it and you are not allowed. With that said, I doubt you can get them to do it
