    Back then people used dynamite to blow up the stumps. Legal to do back then. Hardware stores would carry dynamite, but usually had it in some secure location.

    my granddad cleared 80 acres of trees, burned the slash and stumps and sold the lumber that he didn’t use for house and barn to buy livestock. Never said a word about dynamite. This in the late 1890s.

    I’ll have to remember those words of wisdom.

    pathfinder, yet it was indeed common. Perhaps HE did not use it or perhaps he just did not mention it. In the early seventies a classmate mentioned his after school boss blowing a stump using ammonium nitrate and diesel.

    My Dad helped his Dad blow a stump. The only training Granddad had was from the clerk who sold him the dynamite. The result was good, a nice hole, destroyed stump and a nice chat with the cops who came out from town to ask pointed questions. Dad said it was a real crowd pleaser. :-)

    When I first lived in Australia, on a pineapple plantation, the grower used gelignite to get rid of tree stumps.

    “Life is simpler when you plow around the stumps.”

    Sounds like the country wisdom version of the Serenity Prayer:
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    The courage to change the things I can,

    And wisdom to know the difference.

    My dad used to say “Dumb as a Stump”, I’ll just leave the rest unsaid!
