Thanx for replies, no the tree stump is definitely not putting out any new shoots, the only problem is that the roots which are very near the surface of the lawn are difficult to mow over. I'm OK doing the whole job with my trusty axe and have taken it in for a good sharpening which should see the job done in record time. I've explained to my neighbour that the chemicals suggested would only kill the roots if the tree were still alive, and won't speed up the breakdown of the remaining roots. Thanx for clarifying this for me. Thanx again for watching the posts.
