Tree Stump Killer

Key Features of Ecoplug Max®:

  • No water is needed to apply Ecoplug Max®, vastly reducing required labour.
  • 95-100% efficacy on treated stumps, preventing regrowth.
  • Ecoplugs take up little storage space and are safe to transport loosely.
  • 100% selective with no effect on surrounding trees or vegetation.
  • Significantly reduces risks to operator and environment from using herbicide to control trees.
  • Ecoplugs mark treated stumps; liquid glyphosates require marker dye to highlight treated stumps.
  • Meets requirements of Sustainable Use Directive to minimise herbicide use and the Water Framework Directive to prevent contamination of waterways with pesticides.
  • Use in all weather, all year round - most glyphosates have a much smaller application window.
  • Significantly reduces the cost of clearing trees by reducing the need for follow up site visits.


How to Apply Ecoplug Max®

Step 1: Cut the tree as close to the ground as possible.

Step 2: Drill 25-30mm deep & 13mm wide using the Ecoplug drill bit to control the depth (the Ecoplug drill bit has a stop plate at 30mm allowing precise depth control).

Step 3: Place an Ecoplug in the hole with the orange end first. The top will protrude by about 10mm.

Step 4: Hit the Ecoplug with a hammer until the head is flush with the stump to push out the sides & release herbicide.
