December 2015: Tree Thinning: Tip #5

Tip of the Day: It’s almost always best to trim or prune a tree during its dormant season. Although you can technically prune a pine tree at any time, it is still better to do so when it is dormant. The only exception is when a hazard exists.

Bonus Tip of the Day: Be conscientious about the size of the branch that you are going to remove. If it is less than five centimeters in diameter, removing it is fine. If it is between five and 10 centimeters in diameter, you might not want to do it. If it is more than 10 centimeters in diameter, you should only do so if you have a really good reason.

Chemical Stump Removal

If manual labor isn’t for you, you could always try the chemical route. To remove a stump chemically, you’ll need a drill, a chainsaw, potassium nitrate, an ax and fuel oil or kerosene.

  1. Here’s a summary on how to remove a stump with chemicals:
  2. Cut off as much of the stump as possible with a chainsaw.
  3. Drill 1-inch holes around the perimeter of the stump. Move inward by about 3 or 4 inches and drill some more holes. Ideally, these holes should be between 8-12 inches deep depending on the size of the stump.
  4. Drill additional holes around the sides so they meet with the other holes to create 45-degree angles.
    Pour liberal amounts of potassium nitrate into the holes.
  5. Fill the holes with water.
  6. Wait four to six weeks or until the stump becomes very spongy.
  7. Use an ax to break up the spongy stump.
  8. Optional: Saturate the stump with fuel oil or kerosene and allow it to sit for another week or so.
  9. Optional: Ignite the stump and let it burn and smolder until it is completely gone.
