Earlier this week I had 14 large trees removed from my property. They will be grinding the stumps beloew ground level in the next couple of days. I am wondering if I should apply something to the stumps to prevent them from sprouting and to hasten the death of the roots.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Bruce_MacD,

I know there are products that you can use to kill a stump if you're NOT grinding them. But I don't know if they can be used in conjunction w/grinding. My only question is that in your situation, you'll be burying the stump. And in doing that, you 'cover' it up, and I don't know if covering them will affect the Stump Killer's effectiveness.

I'd go to a Landscaping or Nursery Retailer and read up on what's on the box. If the info about burying the stump isn't on it, I'd 1) ask the Retailer, and 2) also ctc. the Mfgr. too just to be sure. (I guess you could just do #2 but I wouldn't OPEN the box until you hear from the Mfgr.)

Maybe someone else has a more definite answer. My best to ya and hope this helps.

If you contact someone for advice online, be sure you tell them what type of trees you're talking about. Some are much more likely to sprout from roots than others. For example, sweet gums will grow up from roots easily.
