So I have been waging war with this stump in my yard for the past three days!
I told myself that i had to finish today b/c tommorrow begins the brushy pickup in my neighborhood and i didnt want to hold on to this thing for another 6 months.
Now let me tell you a little something about stump removal. Its easy, but its hard work. Now i had never removed a stump until last year, when My dad taught me how to do it on a tree that had died in our backyard. Heres the trick...Whenever you cut down the tree, you should leave at least 4 feet of tree trunk. This gives you something to push on or throw a chain around to hook up to your truck (you might be a redneck if...)
Well the probelm with this stump, is that I cut it down a long time ago when we first moved into the house, and i didnt know better at the time, and i had just cut it pretty low, about 6 inches to a foot off the ground. Lame
Well, it is now in the front yard, and a definite hazard for baby G.
Well, for those that dont know, heres a quick lesson on stump removal, and yes, I know, you could rent a stump grinder, but that costs money/time, its heavy and big, you got to get it to your house somehow/ blah blah
and yes, i know you can cut a grid into the stump with a chainsaw and pour some concoction and in it and it will eventually rot away.
