Could Lead to Dead Grass
Dead grass can also be a side effect of the leftover stump’s decomposition process. As fungi decompose the stump, it takes up nitrogen from the ground and away from other surrounding plants that need it. When the stump is fully decomposed, it will return the nitrogen, but that could take years. The quickest way to restore your yard’s health is to remove the leftover stump.
How to Remove Your Leftover Stump
You can use a nitrogen-rich chemical solution or salt to accelerate the rate of decomposition to remove your tree stump. However, this method will take the longest.
Burn the Stump:
A quicker method is to burn the stump with kerosene, but do not attempt this if there is dead grass nearby or the weather is dry
If your leftover tree stump is small or from a diseased tree, you might be able to remove the stump yourself with a shovel, axe, and some manpower. For larger tree stumps, you might need a different approach.
