Directions for Use:
Gordon's stump remover decomposes the wood of the tree stump leaving it porous right down into the root tips. After 4-6 weeks kerosene is poured onto the stump and the stump is ignited. The stump and roots will burn a low, smoldering flame, not a big jumping flame.
For stumps about 12"-18" wide: Drill a 1" diameter hole straight down from the top of the stump to a depth of about 10". Then into the side of the stump about 4 or 5" down from the top, drill a 1" wide hole slanting downward toward the bottom of the vertical hole. The holes should meet or be sclose together. It is improtant to drill the side hole slanting downward to direct the solution into the crown and roots. Also, when the holes meet, the natural ventilation helps to destroy the stump more quickly when ignited.
Next, pour at least 4 ounces of Stump Remover into each hole. Fill with water and let stand. After 4 to 6 weeks, fill the holes with kerosene or fuel oil and let stand until completely absorbed into the stump. Next, our just enough kerosene or fuel oil into the stump to ignite it. Or, burn charcoal on top of the stumpo or around the base to start the stump burning. The stump will burn with a smoldering, red glow, clear down to the roots, until only ashes are left.
