Using a decaying stump as a planter?

I bet if I suggest this to my two sons (10 & 12) that stump won’t stand a chance.


I’ve not done it, but a dairyman from Ohio, on one of the grazing management groups, swore that his Amish neighbors would just back the manure spreader up to large stumps in land that they were reclaiming from forest, dump a load of manure on/over it, and a year or so later it would be so rotten that they could just hook to it with a team and it would come right out.
