Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Tree Stumps

Because I'm a sucker for bulk trash, I can't tell you how much it pains me to see neighborhood streets lined with tree stumps. I'm starting to think that a DR Chipper needs to be a mandatory household item. Trees are compostable, burnable, mulchable and decoratable. Okay, I know... some of those aren't even words, but they should be. If I was strong enough, I'd carry a carload of these babies home with me every time I saw a pile of 'em. They provide endless reusable ideas...

I'm not ashamed to admit that I've done my fair share of rummaging. We have stumps in our front yard to fill out the garden and smaller slices inside for table decor, candle holders and coasters. That's just good recycling. xo
