And one of the problems you might encore when working on your lawn is a old tree stub and as we where clearing a trench we ran to a problem where there was no tree stub. Here we are using a pick to clear away much dirt as possible for that tree stub. Then once we use the pick to clear the dirt away we then took the remaining portion with a Axe and cut away and chopped away at it could have been about 8 year old tree stub so it is important that you safely wear gloves and you use the right equipment. Get a professional if you need to take that tree stub up as it is a very dangerous thing. I'm Fernando with Expert Village.
