This past weekend, my friend and I had a Chainsaw Breakfast.
Sounds kind of scary, right, but really it was just 2 ladies, 2 dudes, 5 kids, a dog, breakfast… and a chainsaw. Having a random tree on a hill at our house was getting a bit tiring. We have a lot of trees, and thus a lot of leaves, but this particular tree was losing limbs quickly and something that both myself and the kids were walking into. So, this tree had to go- and go it did!
A big thanks to Sean for helping us out (and hopefully, a few more chainsaw breakfasts will result in the clearing of some crazy thick, invasive weeds and a cleaned up yard)!! But, what happens when the tree comes down and a stump is left? Tree stumps are breeding grounds for termites and other insects as they’re both exposed and begin to rot.
So, how does one speed up the rotting process in order to remove a stump? Check out my quick video and learn!
Come back in a few weeks and we’ll see how it works! The goal? To rot the stump enough to use a hatchet and my hands to tear it out!
Do you have any experience with removing tree stumps? What are some tips you have?
