Just a thought - grinding of stumps might not be desirable if the tree is
growing at all close to any graves. Both so as not to disturb the ground,
and to prevent any possible damage to stones. Perhaps in this situation
chemicals might be better? The main objective is probably to prevent
regrowth, rather than the actual removal of the stump.
