Does anyone know the root system on these trees? Are the roots as weak as the limbs?? What I'm getting at is I want to remove two trees, both are in an area where I would not want to use a stump grinder. So, I'm thinking I can leave the stump with 5' sticking out of the ground, put a strap or chain around it and pull the stump out of the ground. Might have to water soak the ground overnite. You guys think this would work?? The tree is 8" dia. This tree is also in my yard...back yard.
