Formula: Cost = Diameter x 3

Example: 25cm x 3 = £75
120cm x 3 =£360

As mentioned above, everyone seems to be charging different prices for the same service. If you go with the wrong service you can wind up paying 300% more for the same job.

The above is a starting price for an easy to get to stump in the front yard of a property.

There are other factors that will increase the cost, so to include them, you will need to multiply your diameter x 4.5.

Example: 85cm x 3 – 4.5 = £255 – £380
