Here's How Urine Can Help You Rot An Unwanted Tree Stump
People employ many methods to accelerate the speed of decomposition for tree stumps as they can often pose tripping hazards and are not the most aesthetically pleasing.
Luckily, human urine, which is rich in nitrogen, can expedite the process by fostering fungal growth. While consistent application quickens the process, it may take several months.
Start by cutting the stump as close to the ground as possible. Then, make deep cuts across the stump’s base and drill holes using a wood-boring drill bit with an electric drill.
Next, cover the top of the stump with soil and compost before dousing it with urine. Here, the rate of decay will depend on the stump’s chemical composition and wood tissue type.
