Tree Stumps as Garden Elements

By Dutchlady1

It is always sad to have to get rid of a mature tree. When you do have to take that step, consider leaving a stump about 3-5 ft high to use as a pedestal for a pot or other art object to make a feature.

I love tree stumps, too, but my HOA does not. (I'm not sure what they DO like, LOL) Their last "evaluation" said we must remove a tall stump out front (the tree had to come down due to disease). I responded by explaining it was a decorative pedestal for holding a potted plant, bird bath, or object d'art... they'd just seen it on a "naked day." I didn't hear anything more about it...

As my daughter would say, "I know, right??"

My new backyard neighbor pitched a fit because she saw a 'possum run into a pile of recently pulled weeds. Apparently I was expected to either evict or exterminate the critter. Blinking

Maybe I'll win her over if/when my new plumerias start blooming...

I'm rather tempted to tie a pink flamingo to my tree stump out front.
