    Stump grinding

    Ben, home remedies never seem to work. If you try to burn it out it may smolder for days. If it starts smoldering under ground you may have a problem. Tree services charge by the inch. My guess is between $100 or $200. You can also rent a stump grinder, may be around $75 or so for half a day.

    Oriental, how comfortable are you with that date? Someone must have put it on the map years after the map was made. I'm wondering what they saw on the map that suggested the date of 1862.
