Why not just drill out the centre of the stumps, fill with compost and plant some nice trailing lobelia (or similar) in them? When they flower, it'll look lovely Smile

if you're man hasn't pulled them out with his truck yet - make sure you've got your camera to hand and set on fast shooting mode as you watch his towhitch come flying off in the direction of the tree... Been there, seen it, got the T-Shirt... Smile

My new approach is to dig out the root so that the tree's relatively loose, tie a rope to the top of the tree and then attach to the Landrover drive slowly and the tree - ...Timmmmmmbbbbbeeeeeeerrrrrr.. Smile

Let physics do the work...

Reading your thread with interest. A stump grinder is by far the best way. Conifers, with the exception of "yew" will not re-shoot from the ground and will rot quiet quickly. Pulling the trees out will cause some ground heave and some damage. Give the professionals a ring for the hire of a stump grinder. Try SWAN HIRE on 0800 9177788. If they cannot help they will be able to recommend a local hire specialist.

Hope this helps.

We have been here 32 years, my daughter was just starting to walk now she is grown up, married and expecting a child in September.
I'm paying nearly as much fo the fence etc. as I did for the house. (grin)

15 years ago I had a guy used to come round every year to trim the trees, got so he was just knocking on the door for the money and they just got worse and worse, I had no choice but to start doing them myself, but the worst of them had got to 6 foot across at the top, I could barely reach from both sides, big gaps at the bottom, kids just walking through making them worse, getting older, me and the trees, they had to go.

I Took a trip to the fencing centre...Earnshaws at Midgley, if there is anybody local on here.
I'm talking to one of the men there and who is looking over my shoulder but Carl the guy who is doing the fence.
I tell Carl what we have discussed re damage and he says there won't be any damage he claims to have done dozens, takes out virtually the whole tree, all down to leverage he says, but it will not work with the stumps, so it's the stump gringer or the weedkiller.
The man comes very well reccomended... I will keep you informed.
