TREE STUMP GOT YOU STUMPED?
Tree stump removal can stump even the most skilled gardener. If the root system isn’t dead, a stump that’s been ground can still resprout. That’s why it’s important to kill the stump before removal, and that’s where Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer products come in.Here are some simple steps to stop the stump:
Using a handsaw or chainsaw
Cut the living stump as closely to the ground as possible. The less stump left behind, the faster it will decompose.
Use a drill to make holes in the stump
They should be drilled into the outer ring, just inside the bark layer—the “living” part of the tree. Holes should be 1/4″ wide and at least 1″ deep and should be spaced about 1″ apart.
Immediately pour undiluted
Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer Super Concentrate or Roundup® Poison Ivy Plus Tough Brush Killer Concentrate into the holes—use enough to fill them.*
This application will kill the stump
In 2-4 weeks, without causing it to rot.
Once it’s dead
Research methods for removal or hire a professional to use a stump grinder.
* IMPORTANT: Some trees may share the same root system. Adjacent trees having a similar age, height and spacing may signal a shared root system. Injury may occur to non-treated trees when one or more trees sharing common roots are treated.
