I have a tulip tree stump that I would like to use as a planter, but I need help in hollowing out the inside. The tree was cut down 2 years ago, and I made the mistake of not hollowing it out while it was freshly cut. Now it's as hard as a rock, and although I drilled holes to pour in stump remover, the holes are only about 1" deep. That's as far as the drill bit would go...with much effort...and not much reward. Some of the roots are above ground level, and the tree is sending up small shoots which I've discouraged with Round-Up. The stump is about 30" in diameter and stands about 3 feet tall. Can anyone suggest what products or methods I should use to hollow out the stump?
