Answer: 
This stump remover won't take out live stumps, but it will take out dead ones. I did some browsing around online about your second question, and I couldn't seem to find anything people said worked consistently. You might have to do some more in-depth research or just wait until the stump is dead and then use the Spectracide.

Answer: 
You could try painting undiluted roundup on it. The stump remover is meant for fresh stumps. If you have a torch you could use that on it. I have used that method before.

I just had 6 large ash trees cut down on my property because they have been dead for a few years.
The remaining trunks are 20 to 28 inches in diameter. Will 2 bottles for each trunk be enough to rot them or do I need more?

Answer: 
The amount of product you'll need will depend on the number of holes you drill, but two bottles per stump is a reasonable estimate.

Answer: 
It says you need 4 oz of stump remover per stump. The bottle holds 16 oz. It will supply 4 doses of 4 oz on one stump, or 1 dose of 4 oz each on 4 stumps. It all really depends on how well the stumps rot. For now, I would go with 2 bottles spreading out the doses evenly over the 6. If you find you need more than two bottles, just buy more accordingly. :)

Answer: 
Hi Bman07, you need to drill several holes. Put 4 oz. into each hole. So one bottle will cover 4 holes. The number of bottles you need will then depend on how many holes you drill in each stump.

Answer: 
If the stump is dead (and it likely is by this time), Spectracide Stump Remover will certainly do the job. Wait until temperatures are relatively warm and your stump is dry, then follow the directions on the label to apply the granules. Allow this product to work for 4 to 6 weeks before removing the stump.

1 lb. Stump Remover is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff Spectracide did exactly what i wanted it to do. What more could yoi ask from a product?
Date published: 2016-08-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from TOO SLOW I bought 10 units of this product. I have 30+ small stumps. I am a bit disappointed. After reading small print. It seems I'll be dead when the stumps are gone. (Im 55 yrs old) I then read a review from the past. Said "10 yrs and stump was gone." That puts me at 65 yrs old! Good grief Charlie Brown!!! I want something to destroy the stumps. I'm putting in a moble home. So the product purchased although I am using it. I'm going to have to get a stump grinder. Or some acid. And get it done RIGHT!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too soon to tell It will take months before I see any results, but I liked the easy application (the material pours like ultra-fine sand) from the graduated funnel spout
Date published: 2016-02-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works well just not quickly and understandably so. I live on a forest floor. from time to time i have to take down a tree or two. Stumps will sprout and its a mess when they do. I have been using stump remover for about 20 years and have learned how to apply so that it is very effective. The stumps when treated like i am going to share will not sprout and will die...a slow death. Immediately after I take the tree down(that day). I take a big drill with half inch spade bit and drill holes about inch close to the edge of the tree all around spaced about an inch and a half. Then I take a 1/8 spade bit and drill outside into each hole at a angle. Making a V. The holes allow water to exit but allow the powder to stay in contact long as possible as root system picks it up. So I use my blower to clean all the wood chips out of the holes. Then add water to the stump. Then take the stump remover and fill the holes in the circle leave the outside holes alone. According to the weather ie if heavy rain is expected i will cover the top of the stump and remove cover when rain goes to light. I mess with it for about 10 days. keeping the holes from getting drenched for that time allows the root system to absorb the stump remover. After that time the holes are ready to do the work on their own without you paying any more attention to it. It a done deal stumps are done for. I moved some leaves today and found a stump from 4 years ago it was like a shrunken head. It will be easy to pull out. Root system is dead too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I had in mind I wanted something to kill and rot stumps. This ain't it. They want you to kill the stump with something else. And even using this stuff to rot the stump is not easy. It looks like it's a liquid that you can apply to a cut stump. But it is granules. They want you to drill holes in the stump, fill the holes with granules, then pour warm water in the holes over several days. What a PITA! Sorry I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's odd to see that the instructions on the label are a bit biased on the usage of the product. ... It's odd to see that the instructions on the label are a bit biased on the usage of the product. The proper way to remove a stump is to drill a 2" center hole into the stump. Intimately mix together 3 parts stump remover and 2 parts sugar, and pour into the hole. This method produces volumes of smoke, however it does reduce the stump into a manageable task within an hour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product was used for a specific area I ordered this product because the tree stump was very close to a structure and the only product in the store was to be used with kerosene and set on fire. Although this product takes a long time to do it's job, it has an ingredient that is used in other manufactures products and has been in use for many years.
