    If you said your seeding why not bring loam in and cover the whole area after you cut them at ground level.

    I have done this with a standard circular saw carbide tipped blade- I attached it to my stihl string trimmer and it is effective. Get 2-3 guys busy and it will be done in a few hours.

    I use a chainsaw -- fitted with an extra-short bar with its own chain, which will be garbage at the end of the day because it will snag more than wood. Still way cheaper than a grinder, faster than a puller.

    We bought our current home about ten years ago (2 acres). It had about 200 volunteer trees/shrubs growing throughout. Many dogwoods, volenteer maples, elms, boxelders, poison ivy, wild roses, etc. This property had been neglected for several years.

    We ended hiring a stump removal guy. He spent two long days with his Vermeer portable stump grinder, and he got the job done to our satisfaction.
