If you cut down one or several leaf trees in your garden, new sprouting will commence almost immediately. By utilizing ECOPLUG MAX®, the stump/tree will die. Treat the stump by applying the plug right after felling, in fresh wood.

To check if the wood is alive, drill a hole from the side of the stump and check the saw dust coming out, it should be moist.
If you don´t know what kind of tree you have cut down, use a higher dosage.

How is it done?

  1. Drill a hole 1/2" diameter and 1 3/8" – 1 5/8" deep.
  2. Use a hammer to drive the plug into the hole, thus sealing the opening so that no substance can escape.

Where should you apply the plug?

There are two main methods.

  • On standing trees from the side
  • On the stump from above or the side.


Use the plug on:

  • Fresh wood
  • Evenly distributed around the stump/tree
  • Close to the bark and the capillary system

Number of plugsHow many plugs will be needed?

As a rule of thumb, take the diameter in inches and divide by 3.
