I live in central North Carolina, and was hit rather hard with the ice storm this year. We lost a lot of trees - an area that was previously "forest" is now empty ... except for tree stumps. I'd like to clear the stumps out and plant a garden in the area. Most of the stumps are 8-10 inches across, and I'd like to do this in the most economical manner possible (we'll be selling the house within two years). I've heard of chemicals that you can pour on the stumps...how well do these work, how long does it take, and how expensive are they? We've also considered stump grinding...haven't looked into it yet, but we're thinking it could be expensive. Pulling them out is another option, but it would mean tearing up another area of the yard. Any other suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
