Did you buy a house or a property and there’s a stump in the yard? Maybe more than one? You probably thought while buying the property that it was going to be easy to remove the stumps, but let me tell you, it’s going to be HARD.
Most people don’t know that stump removal sometimes it’s more difficult than removing the tree itself. Because of this, they make the mistake to buy a property where there are many of them.
Stump removal isn’t something you can do by yourself all the time since it entails a lot of work and you must have the right equipment.

Now, you probably don’t have enough money to hire a company, so let me tell you, you can remove a stump if it is small. To do it correctly, here are the steps you must follow:
- Dig around the trunk/stump, in that way, you will expose the major roots.
- Cut the major roots from the stump using a chainsaw. You can use a handsaw as well.
- Pull out the roots you just cut. If you need to cut more, do it carefully.
- Once you remove the roots, it’s time to pull out the stump using a digging bar.
- When you removed the entire stump, make sure to fill the hole with loam or sawdust.
- Dispose of the stump and clean the area. That’s it!
There are many ways to remove a stump. Therefore, don’t be surprised if you find more techniques online. This is the easiest and most common one. It works amazing when it comes to small stumps.
