Discover What You Can Do With A Tree Stump

Discover What You Can Do With A Tree Stump

While cutting down a tree is a relatively simple task removing the stump is a different matter and so it is often left in the ground. While some people may consider this an eyesore others have found ingenious ways of converting it into a sometimes quirky feature. The article quoted below which I found on the Hometalk website has eleven pictures of recycled trunks and tree stumps.

We don’t know what it is about tree stumps that we love so much – maybe the natural texture, the joy of reusing materials, or the fact that they’re completely free. Whatever the reason, we LOVE them, and we know you do too, which is why we collected some inspiring and crazy cool pictures of tree stump upcycles that you’d better not miss!
