Death to Stumpy

I posted in September about our Miracle-Gro Weedy Stump of Evil in the front yard. The tree removal company we called thought it might be the remnants of a mulberry, and put us on their waiting list to remove it. Here it is in its weediest state:

and slightly pruned down (a state which usually lasted about 4 days before it exploded again).

We were thrilled to come home from work on Monday and find a conspicuous space in the flower bed:

YAY! No more Stump of Evil!! Obviously, the flower bed and the incredibly dense clay soil in it will still need a lot of work to make them viable planting spaces, but getting that awful stump out makes a huge difference. The crew did a fantastic job of stump removal and also pruned the 2 large trees on the other side of the house.

Congrats on the evil stump removal. Those stump removers are really slick. Hopefully they left some good wood shavings in the hole to amend the soil a bit. Happy gardening!
