How to eliminate a strain and especially to prevent that rejects grow?

After cutting down a tree, it remains the stump. On some species, regrowths appear. After 2 or 3 years, these rejections are often as undesirable as the tree initially cut down. Here's how to get rid of it.


For small trees it is sometimes feasible by hand. This remains a difficult job especially with species with hard roots such as oaks or fruit trees.

Another solution is the removal of the machine. Either you hire a professional or the machines are available for rent. Check beforehand that you can bring the machine to the stump to be removed.

To kill the stump

This solution is quite practical. First, drill some holes in the stump. The ideal is to use wood drills 15 to 20 millimeters in diameter. As the stump is wet, it must be repeated several times to let the wick cool.

Then prepare a mixture of nitrate of potash and oil. The mixture must be homogeneous. Using a knife or spatula, introduce the mixture into the holes of the stump. You cover the stump with a waterproof tarpaulin that you hold with some stones. Repeat the operation after a few weeks.

When the product is well in the stock, if you have the possibility (strain away from a house or a fence) put it on fire. The products will promote combustion. A few days later, cover the stump with soil.
