Hi-Yield® Stump Remover (1.5 lbs)
Use this product to remove nuisance and unsightly stumps. HI-YIELD® STUMP REMOVER decomposes the wood of tree stumps leaving them porous. The decomposition, depending on the size of the stump, may take several weeks or months. This allows for easy removal or burning of the stump.
HI-YIELD® STUMP REMOVER is harmless to vegetation surrounding treated stumps.
For removal of stumps up to 12” in diameter, drill a 1” hole in the center of stump approximately 10” to 12” deep. Drill an additional 1” hole into the side of the stump approximately 3” below the top of the stump. This second hole should be slanted to connect (or nearly so) with the bottom of the center hole.
Drill several sets of such holes for stumps larger than 12” wide.
Pour approximately 4 oz. of HI-YIELD® STUMP REMOVER into each hole.
This product works best when the weather is warm and stumps are dry. Fill each hole with water. Allow water to stand from four to six weeks.
If the stump is to be burned, refill holes with kerosene or fuel oil. Allow sufficient time for the liquid to be completely absorbed into the stump. Then apply a slight amount of kerosene over the stump and ignite. Or burn charcoal on top of the stump or around the base to start stump burning. The stump will burn with a smoldering, red glow, clear down to the roots, disintegrating the stump into ashes.
