Technically I can burn it, but the location of the shed and the drought we had over the last few weeks means I'm not allowed to. At the moment we can't even have BBQ's in our backyards, because of fire risks. So I'll be looking at a nice big fine if I burn that tree. And my neighbours behind me WILL call the Garda if they see the stump burning (their house overlooks the shed) That really is my best option, so I don't know… Top it and leave the rest is where my mind is at the moment.
Ugh...droughts and burn bans are no fun if you really need to burn something. Grrrr. I know you could drill holes in it and pour salt in the holes and it would rot - but that's not a quick procedure. This stump needs to go!
If this was my place, I would've had that stump completely out, no matter what I had to do to it. Since it's not and I already spent a lot of time and effort on the shed, I'm going to do what I can and leave it at that. My landlord doesn't seem interested in helping or providing the necessary to complete the project, which is a bit disappointing, but it is what it is. I'll get the shed done somehow and make use of it This project made me think more and more how much I'd like to have my OWN place, where I can do things and spend money, knowing I'm doing it for me and myself. I'm going to make work of that over the next year, while the property market is still good. I saw a place for sale up in Co Donegal awhile ago, nice bit of land, sheds, house needs work, but it's not too bad, €15,000. It's a no brainer! lol
