[NAFEX] stump dissolver(killer)

If you have more than a few stumps to treat, you can dilute the full-strength glyphosate up to 50-50 with water.  Actually, this gets confusing because the "concentrate" on the store shelf is not 100% glyphosate.  But mix a cup of it with a cup of water in a pint spray bottle, and you can treat 2x the cambial bands for the same price.
Try to treat within 24 hours of cutting.  Larger trees/ vigorous species may grow some sprouts again, but just treat again.

....I'm a proponent of targeted use of chemical herbicides - I'd use either full-strength (not the diluted, ready-to-use stuff) glyphosate(Roundup, Kleenup, etc.), applied directly to freshly exposed cambium tissue, or one of the 2,4-D/triclopyr formulations, like Brush-B-Gon - again, applied directly to a fresh cut exposing cambium all the way around the stump.
