The best way to burn a stump is with a trail of gasoline. Not the best quality though, but still cool.

This does not work because most people do it wrong. First the stump needs to be cut down lower. When its about 6 inches from the ground you're good. Then you need to "swiss cheese" the stump with a drill. W/out these holes, water won't escape, oxygen won't allow it to burn. DO A LOT. Then pour 60-80lbs of hot coal over the stump. Watch how fast that bitch burns to ash. This technique always works for me.

This has been known to cause problems, sometimes the roots can literally burn underground for years! A little irresponsible to recommend it on Youtube.
i remember this!
Burning out a stump works well if it has been dry for a while. You don't have to use gas, any fire starter will work. If you can get under a root close to the stump, that's usually a good place to start the fire. Depending on the size and weather, it could smolder for a while, I had one go for a week. You can drill holes to get a better start too. A nice big hole will be left, perfect for a new tree or bush!
Straight Forward
Did the stump burn completely or did the fire just die down later? I am just asking because i have 5 stumps to have removed or burned and i need to know if the gas trick will completely do the job or not?
what is this supposed to mean?
