How To Remove A Tree Stump Without Manual Labor

After cutting down an old or dead tree, you will be left with an ugly stump in the ground. These stumps can take up yard space, and they can also become a hazard if they are not taken care of and removed. You can try to use a shovel, a pick and an axe to pull out the stump yourself, but this can be backbreaking labor that can take a long time to get done, depending on the size of the stump and the roots underneath. What are some other options to get rid of a stump besides using back breaking labor? There must be an easier way. In fact, there are multiple easier ways to get a stump out of the ground.

Removing a Stump Easily

1. Chemical Stump Remover. One of the easiest ways to get rid of a stump without a lot of manual labor is to use a chemical stump remover. This is a very simple process but can also take a few weeks to complete. Several holes can be drilled into the stump. Once the holes are drilled, the chemical stump remover is then poured into the holes along with some water. After time, the stump will become soft and spongy and can be easily removed.

2. Stump Grinder. Probably the quickest way to get rid of a stump is to use a stump grinder. This machine is great because once you have positioned it correctly, you can grind the stump with the push of a button and do not have to use a lot of manual labor. The stump grinder is used to grind the stump to a point where it is below the level of the rest of the yard. Grass, dirt or something else can then be laced over it to make it appear as though it never existed. A stump grinder can be rented at an affordable price so that you can get the job done yourself.

There are other methods that can be used as well, such as burning the stump. All of these methods are a lot easier than trying to get the stump out of the ground with manual labor. Of course, most of these will leave the roots and part of the stump in the ground still. If you need to completely remove the roots along with the stump, this can become a lot harder to accomplish, and you may want to call a professional like those at Brown's Tree Service.
