When talking about causing wood to rot, natural and organic don't go with quick. There are not products that really accelerate decay much. Your choice is to cut the trunk as low as possible. Drill lots of big holes into the stump and pour water all over it. Cover it with a layer or two of black plastic and tie the plastic to the stump so it does not dry out fast.. This supplies water and heat from the sun and it cannot escape. Even this is not fast. You will have to remove the plastic when the wood is dry and get it wet again.

Nothing is going to go on when there is not warm weather and sun. You might be better off to contact a company that grinds out stumps if you need this done any time in the foreseeable future.
