Tree stump removal in Canberra?

Hi everyone, I have several unsightly tree stumps that were cut back too high – by the previous owner – to grind. They’re starting to rot and are generally in a bad state, so I want rid before the white ants find them.

Setting fire to them seems a simple solution – no I’m not mad.

But as they’re in my front garden am I allowed to? Will I likely end up with the Fire service paying me a visit or worse?

thanks for reading :o)

Get the mower fuel, pour it on the stump and light. When the fire is established keep throwing fuel from the can onto the fire. The kiddies will really like the sight of the flames whooshing high as you do this.

Give A cut above a call (02) 6296 4443 they do an amazing job and theyre the cheapest in canberra! 🙂

A friendly letter-drop warning to neighbours and a heap of Anfo?

Not sure about burning them and depending if you dont mind paying for their removal, however give Knock Out Trees a call they can grind out the stumps 0468947940 – http://www.truelocal.com.au/business/knock-out-trees/bruce
