The "easy" way to use a shovel is to hire it done.

If you had more time, I'd suggest axing a few good chunks down into it, sprinkle liberally with bugs, and let your pileated friends do the work for you.

What we got rid of them on the ranch, was dynamite. Use enough to loosen them from the earth and break off the roots, then use a Caterpillar Crawler Tractor and pull them to where we would stack them up, let them dry out, and burn them to get rid of them. Worked every time.

It used to be that you could dig a hole next to the stump and fill it with a big bag of fertilizer which had been soaked in fuel oil. Ignite it with a little blasting cap and--BOOM--no more stump to worry about. That process is kind of frowned upon these days.

With enough fertilizer, you could actually get rid of the stump and build a fish pond at the same time!
