Estimate Total
  1. Service

    Maple (Acer sp.) – 25 feet tall x 8 inch trunk

    Cut down, cut stump as low as possible, dispose of debris.

  2. REBAR LOCATING – Trees in some sections of Carolina Preserve were planted with steel rebar instead of wooden stakes. I must locate using a metal detector and remove any rebar before stump grinding. It is extremely dangerous to grind a stump without removing rebar first.

    FOUND REBAR charged @ $10-$20/piece. Trees typically have 3 pieces, but some have less or none where someone removed it already.

    TOTAL (typical): $0-$60 PER TREE

    *THERE IS NO CHARGE IF NO REBAR IS FOUND*. Eldridge Loop is generally outside the area where rebar was used.

  3. STUMP GRINDING (estimated until after 811 call and inspection work below completed)

    I will need to call 811 to confirm utility line locations. Grind entire mound area. Remove larger surface roots in lawn. I can remove the pavers before grinding but I would prefer not to be the one to place them back after the new tree is planted. Yard will need to be fairly dry to get grinder between the houses without causing ruts.

    —– [General Stump Grinding Information Below] —– 

    811 locates water and sewer to the curb, electrical, gas, and telecom to the house. Water and sewer generally go straight from the curb location to the house. If there is a question about water and sewer location the customer must waive my liability for these lines.

    811 does not mark irrigation systems, low voltage wiring (dog invisible fences, lighting, security, etc.) and other underground systems. Per my waiver, I cannot take responsibility for these unless notified as to their existence and location.

  4. MAPLE GRINDINGS – Take grindings from main trunk area and dispose of them to allow for re-planting immediately. Disposing of 1/2 cubic yard of grindings @ $150/yd disposed.

    If you’d like additional soil removed, I can remove it charged at price of actual material removed.

  5. RED MAPLE (Acer rubrum, same tree) preferred – any particular variety?

    A 15-gallon red maple would usually be about 8-9 feet tall. Approximately $300 for this size.

    Tree replacement – TBD

    Price includes tree, tree planting, and standard 1-year warranty.

Subtotal $900.00
Total $900.00


Thank you.


Estimate: If, upon arriving at the site, it is determined the final price will exceed the estimate by more than 25%, your approval will be required before work begins.

Quote: The price listed here is the final price unless you change your mind on what needs to be done.

Estimates and quotes are good for the shorter of 30 days or until the condition of the tree changes substantially, such as being struck by lightning or damaged in high winds.
