Every time I see stumps around the neighborhood, I always want to load them up and bring them back to our yard for some unspecified decorative use. We had a bedraggled Hackberry taken out on the fence line between us and our neighbors so I finally had my chance when these were placed out in front of our house.
Brandon refused to help me move them, considering the hackberry inferior, but I turned them sideways and rolled them out of the grasp of the bulky trash pick up. I never came up with a great arrangement for them and there is little doubt that the activity contributed to the lengthy round of back pain and sciatica I suffered this spring. They're still just hanging out on our front walk, but Brandon was right. All their bark is already rotting off and they look horrible. They have to go back out to the bulky trash pick up, but I'm not touching them.
