Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Vince Used 3 times, made no difference
I drilled about 12 holes in a 14"-diameter tree stump that was cut down almost 2 years earlier, and filled the holes with Bonide stump-out. I repeated the process twice more, over the course of several months, but the tree stump is still rock hard. Would not recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DAB A good tool, not a complete answer
Used many bottles of this stuff on different size stumps and wood. After some experimentation found an approach that works for me. Drill the holes as instructed, usually not able to get down 10 inches, maybe its my drill. fill the holes with the stump out and let sit for the 4-6 weeks. Then take an ax to the stump, it is much softer and breaks apart much easier then with out the stump out. An alternative to the kerosene, cheaper than renting a grinder and get a good work out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JJDD didnt work for me
i followed the instructions and then about 6 weeks after I applied the stump out I took some diesel fuel and soaked the stump and let it soak in and then lit it and it burned for a while and I left it overnight. well the next morning I have a black stump thats still hard as a rock, hardly any ash, apparently it didn't kill it

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HerbWillow Maybe not for the average homeowner.
The product offers several surprises, since the instructions cannot be read without breaking open the package. There, you find out that the stump has to sit a year first. Next, you need a 1" drill bit able to drill 8' into the stump. Not something people tend to have around. After a stump sits a year, it is often well-decomposed anyway. I regret purchasing six bottles of the stuff. Duh.

We used this product in the fall but the root is still very much there. We are again using it this spring in the hopes of this second application working better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Braggi Does the job, Kills the stump.
I'd say the product works according to the rules of nature. I used it on a big oak stump. Was only able to drill about 7" deep, but it still killed the stump immediately. No new shoots are coming off it. It's been over a month but I don't expect to see any real decomposition until a year or more goes by. The single star rater who called the produce an "epic fail" was expecting something completely unrealistic. His stump will decompose, it just takes time. If the stump is still alive, it won't decompose at all. I'm happy and I'll recommend the product and use it again on a big privet stump about 18" across. That one I expect to see decompose very rapidly because that's the nature of privet wood, but it will still take six months before I see any significant decay. Glad I'm not in a hurry. If I do nothing it will grow right back.

I used this product on multiple small stumps. Some of them alive some of them dead and it didn't work at all. I followed the directions to the letter. I even had my fiance read them to make sure we did it correctly and nothing happened. It didn't kill the live ones or do anything to the dead ones.
