Sep 03, I have about 10 or so leftover conifer tree stumps that need removing due to a driveway going in.

Conifer height reduction required Conifer height reduction complete. Aug 17, Drill holes a few inches deep into the stump in numerous places, using the biggest, widest drill bit you have. The wider and deeper the holes, the better. Fill these holes first with water, then with a fertilizer high in nitrogen or stump-remover granules. Soak the ground all around the stump.
