Tree Stump Removal Procedures

The easiest way to remove a tree stump is by hiring a professional tree removal service. You can also opt for DIY techniques. You have to know the exact part of the tree that should be taken away. A certain portion should be left to serve as lever so the trunk can be cut in the shortest amount of time and using the least of resources.

It may be necessary to rent a power grinder or purchase a stump remover chemical (powdered form of potassium nitrate) which is meant to hasten the decay of stumps. These products can be bought from stores selling home and garden supplies. You can place the granules into holes in the stump and add water as well. The process of decomposition normally takes from four to six weeks. Just makes sure to keep children and pets away from the tree. The decayed trunk can be broken easily using an axe.

Another alternative is to burn the stump using kerosene or fuel but not gasoline. However, the liquid should soak in the wood completely prior to burning. This can take several weeks to be effective. Refrain from leaving a flaming ember in your yard because this can result to accidents or even cause fire. You can build a wire enclosure around the stump and remove flammable objects around such as dried leaves and paper. Using the axe is still a widely-preferred method. Professional removers do not work on stumps that have been cut for more than one year.
