Best way to kill a cedar tree stump?

trsinc(8 TX)August 30, 2006

There is a cedar tree (aka ashe juniper) right smack in the middle of where I'm planning to build some raised beds. The trunk was severely injured while our house was being built and I think it will die eventually anyway...

So, once I cut the tree down to the ground, will it sprout back up? If the stump is covered with two feet of dirt will that prevent this from happening?

Who all has experience using a stump grinder? I'm a little afraid of doing that.

Dy-no-mite.

Actually, I just hire a tree service, and pay the fee to have the stump ground down, then make darn sure I overfill, and prevent any new sprouts.
