Biggest Tree Stump

Remember back when a tree house used to be used as an elaborate secret refuge in the forest; An apple taken from a giant tree was often the biggest and sweetest treat on a summers day, and the biggest tree stump in the vicinity of a summer retreat was the pride of all the kids at the retreat. Well for one small boy, the giant tree stump is more than just a childhood memory; it's his entire life. The tree houses designed by Jim Rohn are engineered to defy the worst odds and to hold the utmost functionality. The designers of these tree houses take into consideration the fact that the Rohn tree houses are built of one piece and they are designed to be as light as possible, while still retaining the traditional design of the Rohn arbor.

One of the biggest tree stump problems that face urban dwellers is the constant undergrowth of tree limbs taking up space in city parks. The biggest tree stump is the one that becomes the most visible. If you have a large tree in your yard that you'd like to hide, there are two options available to you: dig it up and sell it, or save it from further decay and allow nature to do its thing. Unfortunately, digging up the biggest tree stump in your back yard and selling it to a contractor is usually not an option. If you have the money, you might consider donating the stump to a nature preserve or forest, but unfortunately, in this cutthroat economy, few citizens are willing to pay top dollar to have their stump carted away.

Fortunately there is an alternative to simply throwing your biggest tree stump into the trash. Some cities, such as New York, have outlawed the practice ofyard stump grinding. For years the problem of termites eating wood had been brushed aside as "all just part of nature", and it was common for homeowners to simply dispose of the sawdust and leave it be. However, a study conducted by the University of Florida revealed that termites did in fact use wood as a form of protection. The destruction caused by termites in urban and rural habitats alike is astounding.

In Florida the biggest tree stump is not your average oak. Rather, the biggest tree stump in Florida is the Black Ash. Black ash, native to the Americas, is known for its pest repellent properties and can easily be eradicated using chemicals. Unlike some other substances that are too hazardous to let out of the ground, the Black Ash does not give off poisonous fumes or odors when it breaks down. All you need to do is sprinkle a little on the soil near your foundations and walk through it before you go to bed.

In terms of breaking it down for use as lumber, the process is simple enough. All you have to do is cut it into manageable lengths and stack them together, using a fork to break them down even more. This makes for a very sturdy foundation that you can then work around with. Many gardeners who own a farm utilize this method to create a safe place for animals to graze. It can also be used to provide the foundation for a vegetable garden, or simply used to cover up a compost pile.
