A stump is the remains of an object that has been cut or broken, for example, when a tree has been felled.

In Earth science a stump is a coastal landform which forms when a stack is eroded, leaving a small rock island, usually small enough to be submerged at high tide.

In the sport cricket the stumps are three small wooden posts which the fielding team attempt to hit with the ball.
