I just had two very large trees (maple and ash) cut down, stumps ground,
and debris removed for $750. That was a pretty good price for all that was
done. The price wasn't broken down to each individual task.
Just call around, or ask your neighbors who they'd recommend.
-I know it sounds like I'm in denial, but I'm not.
You can do it yourself for the price of the rental of a stump grinder. Call
a rental yard and ask. If you don't want to run it then add the cost of one
mans wages for a day. To get a price from a contractor pick one out of the
phone book and call. They don't charge for estimates and likely could give
one over the phone.
A day to grind 2 stumps? A tree service can do this in less than an
hour. I'd call around and get some quotes. If you can wait to have it
done. I'd point that out to them. They may give you a better price if
they can just swing by when they are in the area.

I just had 80+ stumps removed. Ranging from 6 to 48" in diameter (some logs
too). Done with an excavator - dug big holes and buried most of them -
pushed some in a gully and buried them too. Cost three grand but he was
here 2 full days and did some leveling and roadwork too.
You are sort of right. They have to be buried real deep - and the operator
runs the excavator right down on them to compress them. We did the same
thing about 10 years ago (3 holes) and have only needed a garden cart (pull
behind mower) full of dirt in each so far to fill depressions.
