Tips on dealing with Tree Roots
The roots of trees and of other plants with big, thick roots, can be difficult to remove. THey place a big impediment on using the space in your garden, as the space they use up can be used for planting other plants until they are removed.
Removing tree roots can be very difficult, as you need to dig quite far down and then chop through the roots. A common tactic to improve the easy of this is to wait for the roots to decay a bit, as they will become softer and more brittle once that has occurred, but that can take a long time.
In order to make uprooting tree stumps simple, the best way to do it is to drill deep down into the stump and fill in the holes with potassium nitrate solutions, which will speed up the decomposition rate significantly.
