Anyone know what a decent price would be to have a medium sized tree (15-20ft) removed including the stump and taken away in Surprise area? I understand prices are all over the place and I need a sort of base price. Thanks for the help.

Prices have always been all over the map on this. I had a larger tree taken out a few years ago, didn't bother with the stump as it's too close to the sprinkler valves, and I had a bid of 600 and one of 300. The higher bid insisted when he called to see if I wanted it done, that the other one must have come from some disreputable company, or that they would do a lousy job. I told him that it came from a very reputable company (who did a great job taking the tree out and cleaning up afterward).

you probably already know this, but removing the stump after the tree is down will add more than you might think to the cost....special machine needed and it takes some time....a couple years ago, we had a 50 or so foot tall eucalyptus cut down, leaving the stump there, and it was $2K (Tucson)

I need to plant a pineapple Palm in it's place so the stump has to go. I think they should be able to grind down the stump and hopefully the cost will not be too high.

Pls. PM me. I have an EXCELLENT person for you who can do this work. I've referred him to several others and they have all been very happy with him. Too, he is super hard working and very fair priced.

And just one point, if you drill holes in a stump and put poison in, it will kill the stump and you won't have to remove the stump. Unless, of course, you want to.

I had a large tree removed earlier this year for $400, including haul-away, but not including removal of the stump - the quotes I got for that were just silly, and I was going to grind the stump myself.

A few days later, someone stopped by and offered to grind the stump for $100 - he did a great job, and I saved his card - pm if you want his number.

Yup, this is in the neighborhood of my guy. It's a good price - $100.

My guy charges me around $80 or $90 dollars to do almost half an acre. He does everything - trees, lawn, weeds, etc. It takes him and two or three guys at least two or three hours. He only speaks English (even though I speak Spanish), but I really believe he is here for a better life and he is a damn hard worker and nice and fair. I can't say enough good about him. In fact, I am going to call him right now.

Well, I'd prefer that you PM me here, that I call him, and get his ok first. That would be the respectful way to go, IMHO. Then I can PM you back and give you his info.
