We have a very large old tree (2.5 foot diameter) that is dying. It
is in the middle of a 10 foot diameter flower bed with flowering bulbs
close to the tree and annuals planted around the outside edge. I do
not want to have the stump ground up after we take the tree down as
that would obliterate the flower bed. Does anyone have any ideas of
something we could do with the stump that would be decorative and
still allow us to enjoy both the spring flower bulbs and plant
Use a chainsaw to cross hatch the top of the stump, treat with a normal
fertilizer, and shovel some dirt from the flower bed on top the stump.
Soil bacteria and fungus will take over, and the fertilizer will feed
them, as well.
Not fast, but safe.
Thanks for the ideas, I think I will try to make the final cut as
close to the ground as possible, cut out whatever I can with my chain
saw, and then cover it with dirt, A raised flowerbed would be ok with
my wife as far as I can figure out.
