    Often... stumps get buried on a development
    That’s why landscapers deal with and/or find so many sink holes on properties or one of the main causes of fairy ring: buried stumps

    No doubt

    All you need to do is get a midi execavator and then you start finding all sorts of buried “treasure”

    My favorite is tires and an old engine block... really?

    Buried construction debris like lumber and broken cinder blocks are alarmingly common

    Im dealing with a few spots on a beautiful property built in the early 80s the driveway and a few spots of lawn have sunken

    I dug down and found wood likely a tree stump by the time its noticed the builder is long gone or out of business:realmad:

    Well

    There’s nothing illegal about burying stumps
    It’s actually common practice

    Construction debris? Old cars?
    Yea I’m pretty sure that’s not kosher

    I find construction debris all the time. So much so that I expect it to be there. I've seen where builders try to pass 3-4 inches of dirt on top of 20 or so yards of waste as ready for sod!

    Yeap

    It’s a wonder that inspectors/government doesn’t do anything about that

    World's biggest bonfire.

    Make stump furniture

    Compost.

    Pile em out of the way as a natural area.

    Just a few quick ones for you.

    Maybe in AK, but it is illegal in some states.
    I would check with the city/state just to make sure.
