Questions and Answers
So this huge tree out front kicked the bucket and the city came and dissolved the stump in ONE visit. I mean, it is GONE, shredded, leveled, disappeared completely. I really wish I had seen what exactly they did to it because it was obviously not chemical. That works slowly. I don't think they excavated it either, because there are wood chips mixed with the dirt there now, and it was a pretty ginormous tree. I have a stump in the backyard. The city won't handle because it's on private property. It's much smaller, and it's sort of a hazard. I have put a lawn chair over it for now. I sure would like to know how they got rid of the big one so fast.
Stump Grinder…..You can rent them from equipment rental stores or you can have a tree guy come out and grind it down for you. Depending on the size of the stump there are more manual ways of getting it down. If its only a foot or so in diameter take an Axe or chain saw to until its below grade and cover up with dirt. This might sound like a lot but could easily be done in a morning. If its much more than two feet in diameter it would be a pretty big job but still doable in a day.
I have tried chemicals to erode the stump, a chainsaw, etc. To get it out, but not much luck. Thanks.
Go to your local rental center that rents out larger equipment and rent a "stump grinder." Follow directions and be careful. If you aren't handy, contact a local tree service. They will grind the stump down below ground level. Usually between $50 and $100 depending on the size of the stump. Then you will have nice mulch too.
