I used the planter method. Cut a few inches below ground level a
stump about 4ft across at that point. I drilled many holes then made a
flower bed over it. ca 10 years later, the stump is still there but
is beginning to come up in rotten pieces when I dug it up this spring.
I will probably let it go back to lawn next year.
The best way to get them below ground is to just rent a stump grinder.
Beats all the other suggestions for actually getting rid of them.
The BEST way to get rid of them is to hire a High School boy (preferably
a football player) to dig the damn thing out. Shovel, hatchet and a kid
with so much testosterone he can't see straight. Pay him $100. Works
like a charm.

I drilled 1/4" holes all over mine and then wet it down. Then sprinkled it
liberally with powdered milk.
I don't know if it really did anything, but it did rot pretty quick.
