For this I used a chainsaw, the Forestry Mulcher THX-180 and the Volvo EC250DL with fast coupler, those last two are quite a pricey combo so maybe worth renting only for as long as you need them if you cannot afford to buy them yet or will not be using them very often. Transport to get the Volvo to where you need it would be handy too as it is slow.
Using The Equipment
Note that this method creates fields but you can always edit these how you want in design mode (if you own the land of course) Note was rotating for this test, can go back and forth so you have straight rather than round edges- this was just me trying it out.
It also removes bushes/overgowth as per this before and after.
Lining up and positioning the mulcher attachment and the positioning of the arm of the Volvo EC250DL is important.
Mulcher head needs to be flat on ground when doing this job, mouse buttons and movement adjust positioning of the kit which is very flexible once you get the hang of it (and looks great for game play videos!)
So if mulcher is flat, all the way down, and on it will make a field or fields where you move it over.
I really like that you can do a 360 circle around the chassis of the Volvo EC250DL as it is both fun to do and watch and means you can do part of the task without even moving if you're doing more than just a small area.
This may switch its forward/reverse depending which way cab is facing after you have turned it.
You can also do back and forth lines to square off your edges.
May take a few attempts at both and some adjusting height/ position to clear some stumps, also if stump won't clear may need to chainsaw a bit more off and remove this first so smaller stump.
Hence if stump too big trim first with chainsaw and remove cut piece(s)
Similarly clear any left behind cut logs you missed should you find any by removing by hand so they are not in your way or if there are any trees you need to remove too you'll need to do this then return to the mulching.
After a few attempts finally got that one!
Tips And Info
Updated: now found out if you get the right direction you CAN remove the downy serviceberry trees with the forestry mulcher so this is much easier than trying to do it with the chainsaw, solving this issue for that tree type ( re. next paragraph).
Some trees can be tricky to clear, I found with the downy serviceberry that when trying to cut it with the chainsaw it stayed on the green circle far too briefly and just didn't want to stay on it. I resolved this by changing how much I was looking up/down and walking to the tree a few times until it was eventually happy with how I'd lined myself, the chainsaw and the tree up, then it was one cut to remove the tree.
If the mulcher's not working check if it is obstructed, once it was sitting on top of a stump, once I cut off this bit of stump at the top and repositioned the mulcher it was fine.
Sometimes need to go back over stump a few times forwards and backwards to remove it.
So some things can be a bit tricky but will get there with some adjustment.
Removing tree branches from cut tree with chainsaw: just make a cut at or near the branch join.
Does Not Work For Clearing Some Stumps Already On Map (now Tested)
Not sure if this method fixes this problem Sawakaki mentioned on discussions so it may or may not work on these stumps:
Update: unfortunately it does not, it is still not possible to remove these designed-in stumps/ trunks
"Stumps on Silver Run
Is anyone else having issues removing stumps from the Silver Run map? I'm talking about the ones that already exist when a new game is started. I own the land, and none of the stump removal equipment works on them, nor chainsaws. It all works on the stumps of trees I cut down myself. I do play a modded game, but have cycled through my mods and not found one that is causing the issue."
My ponderings (which led to this guide being made):
Some of them may be scenic which would mean they may/may not be removable in design mode. Had trouble with some of the stumps I'd made and a bit of work making them smaller with the chainsaw and the forestry mulcher thx-180 with the expensive Volvo EC with the fast coupler did the job, it shifts most of what it's meant to shift pretty well, don't know if would work on these problem stumps but you could give it a go, you just need to lower the head properly when you want to remove stumps (this will make a field but you can always design that out in build mode after, plus you can do it on just the small area where the stump is.)
Also if they won't move at all even this way maybe the game will ignore them? Or do they still get in the way etc? Could be a bug of course and they're missing something that tells the game what kit should remove them or/and being locked as unremovable.
One other thing to try is some trees are really fiddly to get the green chainsaw ring like I mentioned such as with the downy serviceberry, so it could just be that they are also tricky to find the sweet spot maybe, I got the serviceberry tree by adjusting how high/low I was looking until eventually the green circle stayed long enough to actually cut it, so these designed in stumps could just be being awkward!
If you find this out such as if it does/ does not work and if not any solutions let people know in the discussions- thank you and have fun with your farming and forestry.
