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.

That's exactly what I did and it seemed to thrive on it. Time to break out the big guns.

When I was in Africa, I saw wild elephants. They would push over trees to make it easier to eat the leaves. It was kind of amazing. They'd put their head against a reasonable-sized tree and just push the tree over.

If you hadn't already cut down the trees, this would be a fun suggestion. But I don't think elephants can push over a stump.

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.
Yeah that sucks.

Tordon has killed whatever I ever needed killing when it comes to brush, trees, multiflora roses etc. Drilling some small holes around the edges would make sure it penetrated but you shouldn't need all that much. Spray/paint brush the top wet and a squirt in the holes should do it. If that doesn't kill it I'd consider moving.

The following story will not hold any advice for you, but it is related.

When we bought our house in 2009, there was a tree in the yard that I wanted to take down. I took a saw to it, and cut it down at about stomach/chest height. From that point, I thought maybe I'd make some sort of standing table there out of it, using the tree as the base. So I kinda just let it sit for a year.

That 4th of July, we were shooting fireworks, and I started using the stump of that tree to sit them on while firing. An ember must have floated down by the very base, because the next day when I got home from work, the stump had the tiniest bit of smoke rising from it. Upon closer inspection, it was slowly starting to burn away.

I chainsawed it down to about shin level, and let the thing slowly burn itself away. Took it about a week, never saw a flame, could barely even notice any embers. Burned itself completely up. Even the roots.

Well, it sounds like I got lucky and bought the right stuff.

I rented a stump grinder together with a bunch of neighbors for a day. $200 I think.
We ground every stump in the neighborhood.
