Stump Fence

I've heard people call fence lines marked by tree stumps grotesque, but I disagree. To me, the aging roots and stems are beautiful as they fade to grey.

Plus I like the idea of using what's available locally and of recycling. This kind of fence is a clever way to use stumps pulled out of a farmer's field. Hardwood stumps often rot in about ten years, but those of white pines may last half a century or more.

I love the idea of a stump or root fence. Very ingenious I would say. MB

There are lots of things I've never seen before and a stump fence is one of them. I love the look of old weathered wood.

I've never seen a stump fence before. I love it! I prefer a nice rustic fence in the country rather than a perfectly made fence in the city!

I have to admit I have never heard of these. What a good idea though. I sould think they do the job well enough but will need repairing once in a while.
