Had me stumps done this morning

(wasn't painful at all  )

Stump man gave me a tip - to kill the stump and stop re-growth, drill holes in the stump with a big bit and pour sugar into the holes.
The sugar absorbs moisture and in the heat, ferments, slowly killing the stump.

Had another tip (an expensive one) - paint concentrated roundup onto the stump and around any trunk that's left. May need to do it a few times though.

Another tip is to pop a bit of fertiliser into the holes. Speeds up the growth of rot and fungus.

just taking a slice into the green of the stup and putting round up jell on that does the job admirably.  no need to over kill

Bought a cordless drill  to do the hole-in-the-stump job meself but apart from a couple of lucky ones, only managed to make a few dents.

The drill is just a home handyman one, dont think the biggest bit is big enuf or the drill fast enuf.

A friend is bringing around her hammerdrill to have a go...

10 mm core sample, 100 mm deep.

Of course, once we've made a hole like that, we can't ship that block to the South Island, for obvious reasons...........

holes in stumps eventually done with a masonry drill

stump killer inserted via a syringe...which I just happened to find in the depths of my backpack

Time will tell as to the effectiveness of the 'treatment'...
