  1. Wow those were some stunning examples.

    Be aware that if the tree roots are still alive they’ll continue to sucking up the nutrients from the soil. Fine if you have a lawn around it but not if you’re growing plants and vegetables around it.

  2. Just had a dead tree sawn down to ground level, so welcome your ideas. Thank you! Possibly the fern idea is good.

  3. I have 100 poplar stumps around my (now) pasture and would like to drill a hole in each and plant a blue spruce in each to be harvested in a few years as Christmas trees. What are the odds for survival/growth

    • I’m guessing it’s just a clear shellac or clear gloss enamel.I have a huge willow stump in my yard that I stained then clear coated.Its 4 ft in diameter I want a plant or several that will grow and creep down the sides,I left it 5 ft tall for that purpose.

  4. I have a crumbling stump. The tree itself had a fungus and was cut down. We left the stump bc it was covered by a bush and tulips. I decided to pull the bush to add some plants for pollinators and saw the roots of the stump are crumbling away. It has giant mushrooms. Can I just stomp the crumbling remains and cover with more soil for my pollinator garden? It seems silly to dig out and throw away what the mushrooms broke down.
