in my back yard. Area around the stump clear of leafs etc and garden hose on waiting to be used. Wet the area around the stump, keep fire small, no windy days and don't burn near other trees. My back yard is 300 feet long, 60 feet wide and 450 feet around the house to the front curb if I had to dump the leafs out there. Front ones go but back is a back breaker.
