Best way to remove old rotted stump


I definitely can't burn the thing. i live in the center of a fairly large residential neighborhood.

The Burgess option looks interesting however there is very little information and reviews about it even on its own website. And the one or two pieces of information were not positive.

I might just use a stump grinder. It will be very hard to squeeze a large commercial duty stump grinder into the back yard, houses here are close together. May just rent a small unit and grind at it for a whole day.

Do you have a means to transport something like that back and forth?

The Burgess option is only about $4.99 + shipping. With that shipping cost, you can use it as an opportunity to buy some plants/bulbs for your garden at a much lower cost than at a big box store.

Can you run that by me again? I have no clue what you're talking about.

Keep your eye open for a tree removal place thats in the area cutting down. Stop by and say when your done here can you swing by with the tree grinder. Wham bam. 50 bucks. Bottomline if they have the grinder at another job site. I say 50 will cover it. 5 minutes its gone. Those rental ones are worth a FFFF. There like little ones.
