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.

I like the sound of that. What I was going to do was drill out some fresh 1 inch holes and dump some in each hole, do you think that will take it out. These are about 36 inch stumps.

I'm surprised you don't blow them up, just because you can.

I would love to, but no doubt the fire department would be over here graveling my ass about it.

Nice so you think drilling 1 inch holes in the beasts and dumping it into the holes will work?

Just paint it on, the product tranlocates through the trees vascular system. Drilling is a waste of time.

The thing is, the top of stumps are pretty hard at this point and I'm not sure it will soak in like it should. I would give it a fresh cut but I would need a bigger saw then I own to get that done. These things are about 36 inches.

Drill holes, fill with epsom salt then place a tarp over it to rob it of sunlight.

Dude, you should try killing a bougainvillea. Prettiest weed ever. Dynamite is the only way.

We drilled holes in ours and poured tons of shit down the holes and covered the stump with it. I do not remember what it was.

2 weeks later we paid someone to grind down the stump as the HOA doesn't allow stumps to be present in the front yard for long per landscape guidelines (****ers).

The landscape thread has some knowledgeable posters. Check there.
