Killing a Tree Stump
Someone cut down a tree leaving a stump about 1 inch above ground level in the middle of a nice grassy area. Is there something I can put on this stump to kill it so it will decompose and lose the 'hump' it makes in the yard? I hate to dig out all the roots and disturb the entire grassy area.

The best you can do without manual removal is to make sure it rots faster. Drill some holes in it and fill them with a high nitrogen fertilizer, then water the stump. Repeat this every few months and the tree stump should rot quickly.
