Tip of the Day: Remove a Tree Stump
You can remove a stump by renting a power stump grinder, but another way is to buy a can of stump remover (available at most garden or home centers). Most brands are made of powdered potassium nitrate, which speeds up the rotting process.

Bonus Tip of the Day: Trouble-Free Tree thinning
Prune midsize branches without damaging the tree by cutting them in three stages. Make the first cut on the underside about 8 in. from the trunk, cutting a third of the way up. Make the next cut at the top of the branch 3 in. past the first cut.

Finally, cut the remaining stump off at the trunk, just past the slightly raised area, called the branch bark ridge, making the cut perpendicular to the branch to minimize the exposed surface.
