I just watched a few youtube videos of people doing this - I think I'll pay the guy with the stump grinder!Will do. Not to mention the stump was cut maybe a foot off grade and I had to dig around it a little to get a tow strap in there. Pulled down hill and the damn thing actually slid my truck to the side on pavement. It was a 30' evergreen. Dont think it it were an oak or maple it would've come out.
