Reusing tree stumps and decorating ideas
When it comes time to cut down your tree, you want to think ahead and decide what to do with the stump. You can have it ground or removed by the tree service, or you can save and reuse it in your yard. Consider the following:

Here are ten ways to creatively reuse your stump:

1 – Plant a tree in your stump

Your stump can be used to display letters, ornaments, figurines or other collectibles outdoors. You can even place some lawn chairs around the stump and serve some tea.

The stub height for this use depends on what you intend to display and how within reach you want it.
