Can anybody point me in the right direction of the best way to cut tree stumps down to ground level. They are from conifer tree`s and they are about a foot tall and bout the size of dinner plate round.
Tried small axe, but hardly goes through them, would a bigger fell axe do the job?

Thanks guys in Advance
Carol.

Would be better off digging around the stump and cutting the roots with the saw/chainsaw...

Thanks guys, the stumps are blocking the way of us putting fencing panels up. We`ve had the panels for couple of weeks now and need them up asap.
So just need stumps cutting down to ground level, do you think a big axe would do it?

Try it, but if you don`t get all the roots ,and it`s still alive it will only damage your fence later on wooops smile

Hire a stump grinder. Don't think you can buy caustic soda anymore, another good thing stopped by the Health and Safety, I believe.
