The other night I came in and decided I was going to burn the stumps in my yard. I am sick of looking at them and mowing around them. My John Deere lawn mower hates driving in circles, as does his rider. Officially, I have waged war with stumps in my yard. I grabbed a can of gasoline and soaked them down. Took a match, lit it from about 10 feet back and threw it toward the stump. POOOOOOOOF! Instant stump burning. Here are some pictures of my stump burning escapades.
This tree was killed by the hurricane. I had to finish cutting it down about a month ago. May it rest in peace. Once this stump burns out, this area will become my new pit. I’m taking some red blocks and building a wall around this area and adding a man made grill. Instant BBQ pit. Great for cooking dogs and burgers. Who needs charcoal!
Smaller stump. It didn’t have a chance but has proven to be a worthy adversary. Turns out there is a very large hole under this stump. I have yet to touch bottom on it.
The largest of all the stumps. About a three feet in diameter pine tree stump. It was also a victim of the hurricane.
Once all said stumps have burned I will be taking my tiller and tilling the ground, leveling it, then placing some centipede sod over the top of it. When all said and done, you’ll never have known a tree once lived there.
