Stumptown is a name or nickname that has been applied to places in the US where the trees were cut town but the stumps were left. In Guerneville, California the redwoods were logged to rebuild San Francisco after the fire and earthquake of 1906. Portland, Oregon was nicknames Stumptown after 1847 when growth forced them to cut down the trees to make way for more city. The stumps were left until the expansion slowed and men could remove them.
