Tree stump removal

This Ash tree was planted about 1980 and has been coppiced at least three times - and needed doing again- but the adjacent makeshift barrier of sleepers and heavy tin sheets was put up in the early 1970s and way past its best.
So unfortunately the tree needed o go to allow proper foundations for a new block wall..
This needs to be substantial, as it forms part of cattle yard boundary and is on the way to the handling race area so cattle can be inclined to try anything to avoid going down there if so minded.

My own mini-digger cut through a lot of the roots but could not move it so this JCB was borrowed for a couple of hours.
