When we moved into this house, there were way too many trees and bushes in the backyard and at the side of the house. We took a whole bunch out last winter and gained a whole lot of useable yard area. I begged DH not to cut down these two pine trees all the way, but to leave a couple tall stumps for our hammock. The kids love it, and it gets lots of use. So another summer has gone by and we know we will keep using the hammock and want to keep these stumps. Is there anything I could do with them to dress them up a bit? Make them look less... stumpy? :rolleyes: I don't really want to get a stand for the hammock because it will make marks on the grass and have to be moved around for mowing. This is the perfect shady location and I would just like to make these stumps look less like a mistake, and more like an on purpose design decision - maybe something unique and fun.
