It’s the stump of a pecan tree, and new growth is emerging from the base.
With a pick and a shovel dig a trench around the stump about 1 1/2 feet from the stump. When you hit a root cut it away with a reciprocating using a long blade designed for pruning tree branches. Continue around the whole stump until you can eventually pull it out. It’s really easier that you would think. Don’t use stump rot because that takes forever, and they’re too small to use a stump grinder on them.
Also- FYI- the root rot takes a lot longer to rot the stump than 2-3 weeks.
Need a cost effective way of decaying the leftover stumps which
are in the front yard!
Why is Stump Out by Bonide Co. Not a good one?
The problem with this idea is that your talking years for them to decay depending on how large the tree were! And you will have the problem with pieces of rotting wood floating round ur garden!
The other option is to remove them alltogether depending on how big the trees are you may be able to rip the roots out with a chain and 4×4 jeep or tractor!
Some roots come up easy some are extreimly difficult to pull up! You mite just be lucky! Only problem with this is you need to leave a tall tree stump to allow the chain to catch and give a bit of leverage!
Another option is to hire out a stump grinder to grind down the stump below ground level! Mite be expensive to hire out!
Hope this helps!
