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.

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.

Howdy Big tree,
The science behind stump remover chemicals is that it accelerates the decomposition of a tree stump for easier removal. The active ingredient in this product is Sodium Metabisulfite. This product will only work on seasoned wood, stumps that have been dead and cut down for over a year. Make sure you follow the label directions and you will be able to remove the stumps easily.

My question was not really answered. I know to put 4 ounces in each hole, but how many holes total do I need in a 2 foot diameter ash stump to make it rot effectively? Is eight holes enough, which will require 2 bottles.

Answer: 
We recommend four holes in the top and four holes in the side for stumps that large -- so two bottles per stump will be sufficient.

i think more is better. You gotta get to the roots too. All my stumps died but several of the roots sprouted about 6 inched away from the stump. So I now drill holes about 3 inches apart and 3 inches deep with a 1 1/2 blade.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stuff Spectracide did exactly what i wanted it to do. What more could yoi ask from a product? August 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Product works but is not spectaular I had several small 2" - 4" stumps to remove. I applied the product in October and the following May observed the results. One stump was still sprouting. About half the stumps that had been killed had rotted enough for easy removal. The others had to but cut up with an axe and sledge hammer. The product got the job done, but I have doubts how well it would work on large stumps. July 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stump remover Easy to use and watching the results over time! easy to follow direction and will rid you of stump problems!Products has May 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This makes excellent rocket fuel! I used this to make rocket fuel with my kids. It must be high purity, because it works very well. April 23, 2016

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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 February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 5, 2016
