DIY Stump Removal: Not Smart
There are many methods to remove the stump yourself, all of which are inherently unsafe for you and your property. These methods might be hooking it up to your truck or SUV and pulling it out. This is probably the most dangerous method of amateur stump removal as it can cause damage the the fram of your vehicle and also send chunks or tree flying through the air. Another common way people attempt to remove a stump is through drilling and poison. This never works. Usually the stump remains after many applications, or it will take months for the poison to take and even if it does your left to remove the chunks your self and the stump is still underground beneath the surface. Some people even try chainsawing the stump out. This is also very dangerous because you are sending the chainsaw through the top of the grain, causing the chainsaw to bounce up in an unpredictable manner.
