Stumps and stubby bushes are not only ugly, but they’re a tripping and shin busting hazard. If you leave them high enough you’ve got a solid seat, but most homeowners want them OUT.

There are a number of ways to remove a stump or an unruly bush.  You can rent a stump grinder, but these are fairly heavy machines that can make a bit of a mess as they grind the stump into little chips.  If you have a lot of time on your hands you can pour chemicals into pre-drilled holes and wait for the stump to decompose and be ready to break up.

This article shows you how to remove a tree stump using a farm jack (also called a hi-lift jack) without breaking your back. This method is effective, affordable, and doesn’t require a lot of manual labor.

Materials Needed:

  • 1 Farm Jack (also known as Hi-Lift Jack)
  • 8′ long 2×4
  • 9″ long 1/2″ bolt
  • 4 large washers to fit bolt
  • 1 wingnut to fit bolt
