Hi Twee!
If you are feeling ambitious and don’t want that stump to be used as land fill there could be a few places that would take it off your hands. Back when ships were made of wood, and men were made of iron, stumps were used in the ship building trade for knees (the natrural bend in the root). The active Seaport Museums with restoration shops might want it to saw into knees. St Michaels in MD, Mystic Sea Port in Connecticut, I’m pretty certain Norfork has a active museum. The Sultana Educational Foundation in Chestertown, Md might know who is building a ship now. Talk to John Swain at that shop. I just read that the Constitution in Boston is up for a rebuild, how cool would it be to have a piece of your farm buit into that ship?
