Pros and Cons of Chemical Stump Killers
The great thing about using chemicals to remove a stump is that it is such an easy process, and most of these products are affordable. The downside, of course, is the time it takes for the products to work. Another disadvantage: Using chemicals in your yard poses a risk to children and animals, so be sure to cordon off the tree stump if you think a child might play on it.
