This stump had a tap root. The stump didn't have too many side roots. For the side roots the stump had, after digging around them quite a bit, I was able to put them out of the ground using my tractor, with some roots easier to pull than others.
Today I pulled the final side root and was able to easily pull up the main root. The side root took much more effort - and extra digging - before I got it out.
No burning of this stump.
With all of the stump out of the ground I used the tractor to push the dirt back in the hole. This goes much quicker than how I did this in the past - using a shovel.
