Hello BERRYMAN and Welcome to

What kind of tree is it and what is the height & spread?

If the tree has roots above grade, they are necessary at that level either for support or as part of the network of nutrient collection - Many trees with roots like this will not survive if the roots are buried.

Does the price you got include grinding the roots down and disposal of the wood and branches? If so, it would seem about right. If not, maybe the size, location (to move the cut wood and debris to waiting disposal truck(s) or dumpster(s)) and difficulty in felling safely might have something to do with it.

Hope this helps a bit
