Default Stump Removal

I have 2 stumps left by the previous owner.

I don't want to pay to have it ground, and one of them is really too small to pay someone to remove.

I'm willing to try burning them out, but the bigger of the 2 is about a foot from one of my decks.

I've seen the Stump removal stuff you drill a hole for and pore in. But does this speed it up from taking 10 years to decay to 5 years, or from like 10 to 1???

Ive heard that drilling some holes in them, and then pouring Rid-x (septic tank treatment stuff) on them works well. But Ive not tried it

We had a bunch of stumps at our cabin, and we got rid of them using a splitting maul. I just went around the edges until it was gone.

Get a product called "Stump Out" at your local hardware store. Comes in plastic botles about 10-12 ounces. Drill holes in stumps and pour stuff in. Remeate in 2 weeks, and then again in another two weeks. Rotting of the stump is accelerated to the point where you should be able to dig it out in a couple of months.

I would use a jeep and a tow strap on that one. If its that close to the house and the roots splay out like you say they do, if one kicks up you could have property damage.

X2 on that stump out bit, I think it'd be best for ya.

If you are going to pull them Use a heavy duty chain not a strap. Make sure no one is near you when you pull them out. Cut as much of the roots as you can befor pulling.

Interesting, pull a moveable object like a stuck jeep with a tow strap, but a nearly inmovable object such as a stump with chain?

Note I said to cut the roots first. As far as a strap is concerned they have their place but this is not one. Strap acts like a sling shot if and when the stump comes out. Not saying that the chain is the best method just better than a strap.

Don't get me wrong, I have used tons of chains to pull stumps. Infact i just did the other day, just seems a double standard.
