Best way to kill off a tree stump?

So when I moved into this house 15 plus years ago the former owner had planted a couple of trees between the sidewalk and the street. Fast forward to last year and the roots had pretty much destroyed my sidewalk so I had them cut down last summer.

Now I have two big stumps that are still alive and I'm getting ready to drop $2500 to have the sidewalk replaced. I drilled a bunch of 1 inch holes in the stumps at the end of the summer and dumped something in the holes, but the beasts are still alive. I would burn the damn things, but the fire department would frown on such an activity. If I was in the country, I would blow them up with dynamite or just make a few pipe bombs to take them out, but obviously the neighbors would become restless when their windows blew out.

I checked into having someone come over with a stump grinder and they are WAY to pound of their services. So is their a good chemical out there to take these wooden bastards to the promised land that anyone has had success with? I hear good things about this but I honestly have no idea if this is going to take them out.

Tell everyone your stumps are Muslims. Let them devise innovative and efficient ways to kill them.

Yea that's an excessive price for just having them do stump grinding.

We had a 30 ft tree cut down, taken away, stump killer added and stump ground 2 weeks later for $500.

Normally after grinding, you leave the chips mounded up & they rot down to level. In this case, rake out the chips from under where the sidewalk will be then backfill & compact the dirt or baserock.

If you pour the sidewalk over a layer of chips, they will rot away leaving a void under the sidewalk.

Which will proceed to crack and fall in.

I took out a good 3 foot wide hedge apple tree, drilled holes and dumped tree killer on it and got tired of waiting, ended up building a fire over it with a bag of charcoal. Whatever you do and kill the stump, eventually it will leave a sink hole and you will have to fill in later, hope that doesn't screw up your new walk way.

I think I'll be all good with the sidewalk as long as the stumps go bye bye. One thing is for sure, if I do nothing the new sidewalk is going to heave back up. I would burn them out in a heartbeat if they weren't right there by the street.

this ^^

i'm a city-bred rat and i had some trees i couldn't kill in my yard. iowanian turned me on to tordon. got it at the tractor store at 291 and 23rd street. waited til spring, made a fresh cut across the trunk and applied the awesomeness that is chemistry...

then the rotting stuff - a year (or two if really big stumps) and they are completely disappeared (like a russian dissident politician ) and they have stayed that way!!

if i can do it, i'm pretty sure bwana can hadle it, just my $.02 worth...

don't have to cut it all the way across the trunk...

just cut some nice wedges and pour/brush on the majik sauce...

it will still work...
