Question: What is the best way to remove a tree stump?

Answer: Unless you have a pig in the yard, the best way to remove a stump is to hire a company that will use a machine to chip it out. You can then use the chips as mulch in your landscaping or flower beds. If you do happen to have a pig, you can pen the pig in with the stump and sprinkle some corn around the stump’s roots. The pig will dig around the roots until it has found every kernel. Another option is to keep the stump where it is and build up the area around it into a raised bed for planting.
