They've got thingys that chip away at them without needing a tractor too. Can't remember what they're called. Basically a big blade that you move back and forth until the stumps gone.

Those vertical wheel stump grinders are what we normally see on the west coast.

No, I live in a residential block. The trees are only about 7 feet tall, so they aren't anything big. I like the stump grinder thing. I am going to call home depot today on my lunch and see how much they cost to rent. I like the bobcat idea, but for 3 little trees, I am not sure it will be worth the cost.

Cut it as close to the ground as possible then put a picnic bench over it.

I would either dig them out or use Stump Rott. Its this powder stuff you put on it and it takes a little while but it eats away at the stump.. quickest(cheapest) way would be to cut around it and dig it out.
Good luck!

If you know of a tree cutting business or anything in your area, they probably have a stump grinder and that would be the easiest thing to do, otherwise I would recommend the sawzall idea.
Good luck either way.

My favorite tool for a task like this is a Pulaski. It's a axe/hoe combo meant for getting down and dirty in the ground. I was introduced to it as a trail builder, but they're really common for firefighters. Dig with the hoe end and spin it around to chop as you run into the roots. A large single cut mill file put a nice edge on it really quick after abusing it in the dirt all day. Pulled many scrub oak and a hand full of pine stumps out with one of these.

Ok. I have decided to go ahead and chop it down and rent a stump grinder and call it a day. I don't want to be left with 5 huge holes where these trees would have been. I think that is the best route.
