Removing tree stump

ger donovan asked 11 years ago

The old oak tree was cut down over 3 years ago. I have drilled lots of little holes in it, filled them with the appropiate tree stump decayer chemical every autumn and covered to no avail. It is still as solid as the day it was first cut.I do not want to have to go to expense of stump grinder, or trying to burn it. I would be very grateful for any useful tips or advice you could give me to solve this problem.

Oak is a very durable timber and will last well despite using decay materials.

The best bet is to plant something to screen it, a low shrub such as cotoneaster or ivy. The cover of the shrub will help to keep it moist and speeds breakdown.
