Despite the specific size or type of tree, unwanted tree stumps in lawns and gardens can be both a nuisance and an eyesore. Many methods exist which allow for the immediate removal of unwanted tree stumps, but these typically consist of renting high priced stump grinders or hiring professional gardening or landscaping experts.
Rather than hiring a professional or renting an expensive stump grinder, consider the safer and less pricey alternative methods of stump removal. Many products and techniques exist which help to speed the long natural decomposition time of tree stumps without harming surrounding vegetation.
Spectracide Stump Remover
Created specifically to take the time, pain, and effort out of removing unwanted tree stumps, Spectracide Stump Remover is an excellent choice of alternative tree stump removal.
The Spectracide Stump Remover consists of crystal granules which are very simple to apply, thanks to the product’s packaging and sturdy nozzle. The crystal granules are applied by drilling holes into the tree stump and adding water.
Traditional Gardening Fertilizer
Believe it or not, but traditional gardening fertilizers have longed been used as a thrifty method of speeding the natural decomposition time of tree stumps.
Simply drill holes into the tree stump, pack with as much garden fertilizer as possible, and top off with water. In the matter of only a few months, the tree stump will become quite soft and much easier to chop and completely remove.
Stump Out by Bonide
Produced by a well trusted and established home improvement and gardening brand, Stump Out is a simple solution to speeding the decomposition time of an unwanted tree stump.
Stump Out consists of crystal granules, which are applied by drilling holes into the unwanted tree stump and adding water. This product not only speeds the decomposition of the tree stump itself, but reaches all the way to the roots of the tree stump. After waiting just a few weeks, the tree stump can then be burned or chopped with ease.
Both the Spectracide Stump Remover and the Stump Out by Bonide can be found at most hardware and garden supply stores, as well as select department store chains.
It is important to check with your city, county, and state burning laws before attempting to apply tree stump removal products that require the use of fire for complete removal, as certain areas prohibit any type of lawn fire. Failing to follow burn laws may result in ticketing, fines, and even legal trouble.
