What makes it so hard to lift a tree stump? See attached pic, we lost this mango tree in Hurricane Irma, and we've cut off the branches and most of the trunk. We'd like to lift up the remaining stump, but 3 of us can't lift it. Is it the weight of the stump or perhaps something in the roots that is making it so hard to lift? Any tips on what we can do to lift it? We can't get a crane or a truck anywhere near the lake where the tree is. We know the stump will eventually need to be removed but we'd like to lift it to get it out of the way for now.
