    If they're really small, you can dig/chop them out with hand tools or a sharp edged shovel. If smaller yet, prune them with sharp cutters, close to ground level, but do not cut into live tree trunk .

    Hi this is Peggy, I suppose you mean the tree is gone. If the tree is gone you can rent a stump grinder and take out the roots. If they are small you could dig them out.

    Yes just a small stump but greens keep growing out of it!
