Default Accelerate decomposition of small tree stump

"blueman" wrote in message
I took down some saplings last year (about 2-3" diameter) that were on
a relatively steep hill in our front yard.

Is there any simple/cheap way to speed their decomposition?
It probably doesn't pay to rent a shredder plus it would be difficult
to manouvre it in the hilly area.
I had heard in the past of chemicals that are drilled into the trunk.
I'm looking for something readily available that is faster than
natural decomposition.

I got rid of a 3' diameter by 3' tall stump by building a fire on it. It
took about three days using a fan to keep it hot. The grass growing where
it was now makes it about impossible to notice anymore.
