I've cut down a few trees for the same reason!  I live in Houston, TX
ant LOTS of pines 50-60 feet (20m or so) tall.  It is not a fun task,
but if you do it, there are chemicals that disolve the stump.  Here they
have a product called STUMP-BE-GONE (not a joke!!!!!) and it does what
it says.  Stump is gone in 4-5 months.  Sorry, but the can doesn't say
what is in it.  If you leave the stump, you may have termite problems,
and getting rid of a stump is easier that getting rid of termites!!!!
hope it helps,
