I recently had a 20" diameter chinaball tree cut down. They did not have a
stump grinder, and I didn't care because I intended to put a planter over
the stump. The stump was cut down about 3" above ground level.
Like a cat that won't go away, it started growing again. What is the best
way to kill this thing? Drill and put stump killer in the holes? Which
stump killer is good and won't kill everything else, or new plants I put
If you don't want to use chemical, just keep snipping all of
the shoots off as they grow out, and all of the food in the
root will be gone in a year or so. Or, you can speed things
up by girdling the stump by cutting out a 1/2 inch slice of
bark all the way around close to the ground.
