Do many of you use a product, perhaps something like this, to get rid of stumps?:

Burn em out. Cut the bottom. Out of a 55 gallon drum. Set the drum over the stump. Throw fire wood and other combustibles in and keep feeding it. The stump will be gone.

If you don't have the equipment to remove the stump, burning works really well. It's also good at preventing suckers from forming.

I call a guy to grind out stumps for me. Very reasonable, he does the work, and no machine to maintain.

Get a couple bags of cheap charcoal and it will burn it to below the ground surface.

Until that root that runs thirty foot under your shed smolders underground just to pop up a hotspot in your shed.

I am very careful with camp fires in Washington because of this very thing. A root can very easily burn underground for days, weeks, or even months, igniting a forest fire way after you'd think the campfire is long dead.

Especially where the root runs through deep duff, or dried peet type of soil. Mineral soil is not so much of a problem.

Its a funny thing, After a fire burns through spruce forest it was always fun (but frowned upon) when us firefighters would push over standing trees that the roots had burned away from under them. I am not sure if they were green before they burned, but I think so. Didnt take much to topple them and get the domino effect going. Often times just leaning on them, and when the wind picked up run for the clearings. lol

Of course we spent alot time digging up burning roots some go deep.

I have seen peatbog fires burn for a few weeks, causing several acres to drop in grade a foot or so. Wisps of smoke rising from hollow stumps.

The old formula with Potassium Nitrate is a good ingrediant for making your own traditional black powder for the smoke pole.

Some coal mine fires have been burning for over 100 years!

Cut the stump off as short as you can, drill large holes or score it into 2 inch squares, pour quart of uncultured buttermilk on it, then cover with grass clippngs or straw. It will rot away in short order.
