I have cut down a Cherry Laurel tree. I still have a stump. I soon had many little Cherry Laurel sprouts all over my yard. What do I need to do to get rid of the stump and these little trees for good?

You can starve the roots out by continually cutting down the sprouts (before they develop leaves), or you can use a chemical to kill the stump. There are several chemical preparations available to accomplish your task. One is "Hi-Yield" Stump Remover. It decomposes the wood leaving it porous and easy to remove. Available in a 1 1/2 lb. can, it is harmless to surrounding vegetation. It is available from Jung, their phone number is 1-800-247-5864. Another product is "Stump Out". It works in much the same way and is available in a 2 1/2 lb. can. You can purchase it from Stark Bros. at 1-800-325-4180.

Best wishes with your project.
