I am working on clearing some shooting lanes on my property for deer hunting, and i would like to kill the stumps from the larger trees that i am cutting down that i cannot pull out with my tractor. I have a 3025e so i am not able to pull up anything large. Most, if not all in some sections, of the trees are pine. Some of the stumps are rather large, probably 8-12 inches in diameter. I do not want to dig any of them out right now, so renting a mini excavator is not an option. I heard that there are herbicides that are made to kill stumps so that they will rot faster. Do these actually work? Will regular weed killer work?
This is the product i use to control weeds around the house and gravel driveway. FarmWorks Grass Weed Killer 41% Glyphosate Concentrate, 2-1/2 gal., 76200 at Tractor Supply Co.
Could i apply this to the stump to kill it faster? or is that just for the green part of grass and weeds?
I want the stumps to rot because i want to be able to use my rotary cutter to keep the lanes clear and not worry about hitting a large stump.
Thanks for any tips.
