Just a thought but after reading any forum do I need to remove the roots of the chopped down conifers? the advice on one reply given was to let them rot, in the garden centre i was advised to get someone to chop the roots up by digging down a couple of feet,and mulching them, he suggested the men who copped down the trees would have the equipment, sorry to sound so ignorant but hadn't given it much thought till then,,,,,,, Rolling Eyes

I'd just leave to rot away. Much easier.

It's what I'd do, but I would also keep an eye out for honey fungus. When we moved here there was a large dead tree in the wood - so dead I couldn't even tell you what it had been! But over the years honey fungus has spread out from it's roots and affected other trees. Some are more susceptible than others. But don't panic it's not inevitable. Very Happy

Alan who works for Coilte once told me they paint the stumps with a solution of urea to encourage rapid decomposition and avoid honey fungus.
