To remove the stump of the tree is possible by chemical means. On the cut, drill a hole, pour in it the sodium or potassium nitrate. Cover the stump with film that the rain washed away her. To speed up the process of removing the stump of the nitrate by making a concentrated solution and continuously pouring it into the stump for a long time. When heated, the nitrate releases oxygen. So when a stump the whole impregnated with saltpeter and dried, it is ignited. Thus, the stump is completely burned, even the part that is in the ground.
The way to remove a stump nitrate cannot be used if the garden plot is located on peat soils. This can lead to ignition of the peat, which is difficult to extinguish. In this case, sprinkle the stump with coarse salt. The salt has impregnated it, destroying the wood.

If the goal is removal of the stump to prevent the emergence of shoots from it, then cutting it very close to the ground. Drill, drill several holes around the circumference of the stump, through the funnel pour into them the solution of any oxidizing substance such as ammonium sulfate. The holes will close up with clay. Acid will get into the wood, preventing the emergence of shoots.
Remote stump is of no value. Sometimes you can use unusual stumps with artfully twisted roots for decorative purposes.
