Tree stump and root killer plugs comprise 300mg of granular glyphosate encased in a nylon Eco-Plug capsule.  When glyphosate is released in the tree/ stump it’s transported by the plant’s nutrient levels to the root system where it blocks the plants vital amino acid formation.  This tree stump chemical kills the entire root system of targeted trees with no adverse effect on the surrounding vegetation, delivering 95-100% control of treated tree stumps.

Killing tree stumps in 3 simple steps

  • Drill the required number of holes in the tree stump using the calibrated drill bit
  • Place the Ecoplug capsule in the hole, with the thicker end of the plug to the top of the hole
  • Hit the capsule with a hammer to release the herbicide into the stump

The use of Ecoplug stump and root killer offers significant reductions in the cost of clearing trees as the need for follow-up treatments are alleviated. The encapsulated chemicals reduce the risk to the operator and the environment by eliminating the risk of spillage, incorrect doses, operator exposure and water pollution, making Ecoplug the ideal method for fresh cut stump application.
