Beside above, how do you preserve tree stumps with roots? Cut Stumps Once dry, remove the bark using a hammer, prybar or wood chisel. After sandpapering it for smoothness, add some wood stain to balance out the color. Now your stump is ready for the preserving magic of a polyurethane sealant. At least two coats should be applied to fully seal and preserve your stump.

Thereof, how do you hide a large tree stump?

If your stump isn't hollow, you can still hide it under flowers. Chip away the center of the stump with the pointed end of a pick mattock. As the hole grows larger, use the wide, flat end of the mattock to remove the wood. Leave a minimum 3-inch border around the hole and make a hole between 4 and 8 inches deep.
