Country life does have it's advantages other than never having ridden a
train, subway or taxi. LOL That is interesting about the tree removal rule.
So for your money you need to really see if they have the stuff to grind
down the stump. We are going to have a 100 black walnut removed from the new
house we bought for daughter some day. It is right up against the house and
over the master bedroom. Someone asked me yesterday why when it has been
there for a 100 years? I told him that it was because this is windy, tornado
alley Oklahoma and just because we bought the place something will land that
tree on top of my daughter some night when they are sleeping! Hey I know how
her luck goes. I will be sure to ask if they can get rid of the stump also.
If not we will cut it off to make a good seat. if it sprouts we will drill a
few deep holes in the top and some activated bread yeast in hopes of
starting the rotting process.
      We would try cutting it down ourselves but it is too tall for the
front end loader on the 64 horse JD cab tractor and I don't want our
insurance to have to cover any damage. We will let them do it with a cherry
picker and their insurance.
