Now let us examine in more detail each of the methods.
Removing stumps manually
Manual way to remove stumps the most lengthy and time-consuming, but at the same time not require any cash outlay. All, what you need, this shovel and axe (or hacksaw). First, you need to apkopoti the stump from all sides (about half a meter), then released the roots to cut, and he to pull the stump from the ground. This method will allow for a short period of time (a few hours) to extract the root, it does not spoil the decorative objects in the garden and not to harm the environment.
Stump removal chemicals
This method is one of the most simple, because. requires physical effort. The essence of the chemical removal of tree stumps is, that stump is processed by a special tool, which for 1-2 years completely destroys it with an underground root system.
To date the chemical removal of tree stumps using the following tools:
- Nitrate (sodium, potassium, ammonium)
A brief look at the essence of each method.
If you use potassium and sodium nitrate must be drilled into the stump hole (over 30 mm diameter) and tight to score his saltpeter, then carefully wrap the stump with plastic food wrap and leave for about a year. Once a year, you need to remove the film and to burn the remains of the stump.
Please note that, this method is not suitable for peat soils, because. they are very flammable.
Removal of the stump ammonium nitrate (actually, as urea) it is the same process. The difference is in the, something to burn the stump is not necessary, because. after a year or two, the root system will disappear by itself.

The mechanised removal of stumps
If you are faced with not one stump, but with a garden, you may have to use special mechanized equipment – tractor, who quickly to remove all the stumps. The disadvantage of this method is the high material cost of hiring professionals, and the fact, that heavy machinery will damage the landscaping of the entire site, then you will have one week to restore the beauty.
It should also be noted, instead of tractors, you can simply hire professionals on uprooting trees. They are using chainsaws and other tools to quickly and accurately remove hindering objects.
Removal using petrobelli
Pridruzili is a gardening tool, effectively extracting the old stumps with the help of grinding by the Executive body. The cost of petrobelli large, but there is a service “lease petrobelli”, the buyout will allow cheap to remove the stump for a short period of time.
The lack of petrobelli in, she can only remove a small stump (depth 30 cm), and you do need to clear the area near from garden debris.
Uprooting a stump with a winch is quite effective and will allow you to quickly extract a stump from the ground.
You will need the following tools:
- The lever
Immediately it should be noted, this method is suitable only in the case, if there is a stump with a trunk about 1 meters high.
First we need to apkopoti stump around on two feet, next, cut off visible roots and to fix the winch on a nearby support (at its base). After that, the stump will need to anchor the rope (over it), and under the stump itself, as possible, put the lever. As a result of work winch, extracted the stump needs to come out from the ground.
Removing stumps with water and scrap
These two ways apply to hand removal of stumps, but only to facilitate this time-consuming process.
The removal of the tree stump scrap will fit in the case, if the tree was young. In this case, a shovel to free the roots, cut them, then right under the stump to set the scrap and with a force alternately to tilt the stump in different directions, while the current object is not completely free.
The manual removal of root with water will allow you to quickly and accurately release the roots from the ground. All you need, dig near the stump hole (at a distance of half a meter) and a hose to wash roots from the earth. The water under pressure is completely released root system, and the dirt will drain into the pit dug. As a result, net roots will only need to cut and pull the stump to the surface.
Recommend that you combine several ways. For example, the uprooting of the stump by hand using chemicals or other alternatives!
