What is the most effective way to remove tree stumps, diy?
We have 12 med- large sized tree stumps left in our back yard (the trees resembled arborvitae, but may have been a different conifer). We've tried to chainsaw them at the base, but just burn through the chains too quickly.
Aside from hiring someone, is there a way to make the stumps easier to remove? Someone mentioned burning them out, but I don't think that's an option in our neighborhood. Any tips would be appreciated! We're trying to make it safe for our munchkins to play back there and we want to grow grass where the stumps currently are. Thank you!
