    Do they detail some justification for this procedure on the drawing details (other than cost savings for removing the stump).

    Could they possibly think that the new tree will receive some nutritional benefit from the old stump???

    Looks like a drawing from the U.S Goverment.........Army Corps of Engineers perhaps? Looks like the handwriting of a park ranger that works in Ma and Ct.

    It looks like the situation will only get worse as time goes by. The breaking down of the stump, sinking trees, air pockets, more susceptible to wind, nitrogen loss.
