Would salt and water kill a tree stump?

No it would not, your best bet would be to have a stump removal specialist come and do it for you. If you know about fungi then use oyster mushrooms to decompose the stump, this way is slow and takes about a year but you get fresh oyster mushrooms to eat every rain. You can burn the stump depending on where you live and how old the stump is. If its fresh it will not burn good, but if its old it'll burn up nicely and *presto* no more stump. I use the mushroom method on stumps around my place and it works great, its taken about a year and the stump is wood chips now, I have probably ate around 3 pounds of oysters :)
