Hidden Tree Stump

Hidden tree stumps along with large boulders can become obstacles you will only find when you start to dig into the soil. These hidden treasures can become nightmares. I found this tree stump when digging in my garden when I needed to turn the soil over to add nutrients.

This tree stump took me about 18 hours to remove. The rest of the roots spread out through the entire garden area. These tree stumps become problems when ever you are planning to build anything over them, like a patio, room addition, sidewalk or even a planter.

Tree stumps also become problems when they start growing. On the other side of my neighbors yard the tree is in full bloom and starting to grow at an alarming rate. A tree that has been removed does not necessarily mean it is dead. These trees can continue growing and over time you could have another tree in your backyard.
