Yeah, I don't consider a stump dug up until it's completely disconnected from the ground.You are very correct about this. I forgot to explain, cut the stump off only if you have the whole thing out of the ground. As in, I use the excavator to lift the entire tree, stump and all, out of the ground. Don't only get the tree pushed over and then immediately start sawing the stump off, as it can have a LOT of tension left, like you note.
