Depending of course if it is close to overhead utility lines or house or such, probably in the $200-300 range for felling and total removal - more like $300-500 if close to wires or house so it has to be taken down piece by piece from the top. For that small a tree will probably be totally chipped on site and the chips hauled off in truck for playground or mulch use. Or if you want the chips left for mulch they can just make a pile of them on the ground for you to use.

Stump grinding probably about $75-150 additional for that small a tree and a species normally without large shallow roots that need chasing a long ways from the stump. Actually for a softwood tree like that and only 10" diameter, I would just have them cut as close to the ground as convenient, then you dig down with a shovel (after doing utility locate to be sure you will not hit shallow wires or gas line) around the base to a depth of 8 inches or so, then use a sawzall with 12-14" tree cutting blade to cut the stump off below ground level from two sides - and to cut roots where they go underground. In soil that is not rocky you can actually use the sawzall right into the ground to cut roots, without digging a clear hole first. You could buy the entire sawzall and several blades for a good deal less than the cost of having it ground, in all probability.

Here are links to a couple of similar questions with answers - you can find more in the Lawn & Garden - Tree Service link under Browse Projects, at lower left.

Oh - BTW - Angies List does not have an "answering system" - responses to questions in the Questions area are by individual contributors (or member services for questions about membership and benefits).

You can also put keywords into the ASK box and it will pop up a half dozen or so links to hopefully related previous questions on your subject.
