Best way to kill off a tree stump?

So when I moved into this house 15 plus years ago the former owner had planted a couple of trees between the sidewalk and the street. Fast forward to last year and the roots had pretty much destroyed my sidewalk so I had them cut down last summer.

Now I have two big stumps that are still alive and I'm getting ready to drop $2500 to have the sidewalk replaced. I drilled a bunch of 1 inch holes in the stumps at the end of the summer and dumped something in the holes, but the beasts are still alive. I would burn the damn things, but the fire department would frown on such an activity. If I was in the country, I would blow them up with dynamite or just make a few pipe bombs to take them out, but obviously the neighbors would become restless when their windows blew out.

I checked into having someone come over with a stump grinder and they are WAY to pound of their services. So is their a good chemical out there to take these wooden bastards to the promised land that anyone has had success with? I hear good things about this but I honestly have no idea if this is going to take them out.

The best way to kill anything is to make it listen to Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe's show "Undisputed" for about 5 to 10 minutes. Don't go any longer than that, though. That would be torture, and that tree stump hasn't done anything to deserve that.

Hmm? I don't know if anyone rents one around here but it may be worth looking into. After I grind it down to a shadow of its former self, I can dump the death juice on anything that's left just to be sure.

Since you have neighbors I guess the call Frazod suggestion is out.

I would think cottonwood being a soft wood would soak that poison right up and die away. You could always bury them in leaf piles to tempt the kids in the area to take them out.

If it was fall that would be a good bet. Watching the little bastards hitting my leaf pile/monster stumps followed by an air born Bo Duke would be quality entertainment.

This is what I did and learned from several farmers. Take a drill with an extended bore bit that is as long as you can get. Anywhere from 8 inches to 16 inches is ideal in length and make sure the diameter of the bit is 1/2 to a full inch in diameter. Drill a bunch of holes as deep as the bit will go all over surface of the stump. A heavily pock marked look. Then take a can of diesel fuel and pour it all over the stump filling up these holes and then light it. It will then start to smoke and burn slowly. Continue to monitor and refill the holes if need be to continue the slow burn. Within a few days you should be able to take a pick, axe and shovel and it will come right out.

Get an axe and splitting maul. Spend an hour each day chipping away at it.

The ladies will love your lumberjack appeal, as well as the muscles and self-confidence that come with it.

Drink plenty of whiskey as this will be a multi-day project.

You can rent a stump grinder and do it yourself rather than pay someone for their labor.

You can also place a BBQ over the stump and "burn" it for cooking. There is usually a loophole in burning laws for cooking or fires for warmth.

Tordon is available locally at Orscheln 's. Last summer it was cheaper there than indicated on the Amazon link you sent.

Remember, for it to work, it is best applied to fresh cut living bark. Pouring it on a dead stump will do no good. Find the living portion, make a cut, & apply. It will die.

The Tordon bottle is a squirt bottle with a three-hole nozzle. Just open, invert & squeeze. It is bright blue so you can see where you put it.

Good stuff.

Be a man. Go buy flannel and an axe. Chop that shit to non existence. Then pour what ever liquid you want on it and bury it. You will also get some exercise in.

My neighbors removed a stump by placing a burn barrel over it at night time and a leaf blower to the side of it. Thing was gone the next day. Most of the neighbors did not know.

Bwana....Tordon RTU is not restricted and available in small quantity. The key is a fresh cut exposed cambium layer. Then just squirt it all around the tree stump. If a bit drips down the bark side thats ok. You can do any time of the year. It id formulated with ingredients that will essentially mix with the sap and will be drawn into root system. Some species are more susceptible than others. I didnt read entire thread to see what they were....

I would be all over it, but these damn things are right on the street.

Yeah It looks like I bought the right stuff for sure.

I called the rental outfit to check on the price of a stump grinder and they are $200 a day. I was excited until he told be he wouldn't recommend using it on anything bigger that 20 inches. One stump is 34 and the other is 36.

I was shooting the shit with one of my neighbors and asked him if he knew anyone that grinds stumps. He didn't but called another guy that hooked me up with a guy he used. The stump wrangler came over and told me if I paid him in cash and did the chip cleanup that he would do them both for $275. The two other guys I talked to were closer to $800-850. I asked when can you get started? They should be a memory by the end of this weekend. I just didn't want to chance pouring a new sidewalk and having a rouge root around that would heave my new sidewalk.
