Buried Stumps


This is why you don't bury stumps . I'm glad they changed the codes here in 2001 .

Re: Buried Stumps


You should see what happens after a forest fire. They burn for months underground. Stepping in a hole is a danger, especially for livestock.

I was amazed when it was reported that there were some stumps still burning 8 months after the Cedar Creek fire down here in San Diego County, huge fire, over 300,000 acres incinerated.

Re: Buried Stumps


I have always hated burying that sort of stuff. People seem to think it will never rot out.
