This concentration may vary by species, but is generally 1 to 2 percent when using a hand-held sprayer. Apply the herbicide when trees are in full leaf for the greatest coverage such as Remedy.  Cover all the leaf area thoroughly. Symptoms of damage should be visible within seven to 14 days.


Step Three: For tree stumps from trees that have been cut down, cut the trees down to as close to the soil as possible to prevent resprouting and coat the surface of the stump with the proper herbicide, such as Tordon. It may be necessary to reapply treatment 2 weeks later.
