    I hired someone to grind them which created mulch. Apparently you can also drill many holes, and pour Epsom salts in them. It helps rot it out.

    You can also rent stump removers for a day or longer and do it yourself.

    What exactly is a stump remover? We want to plant another tree in its place

    The only way you can plant another tree in the same exact spot is to completely dig out the old root. We had our elm tree stumps "removed" by a professional tree company, but they just ground the stump down to below the surface of the ground and we had to stagger the planting of our new trees around the old roots. My husband dug out the root of a 50' pine that broke off during a storm. He did most of it by himself and it took him a long time, even though pine roots are shallow and this tap only went down about 8 feet. He finally got some help for the end and they pulled the last out with a log chain. Can you drill some holes and put fire in the holes?
