Removing Tree Stumps with Salt

After a tree is cut down it may take many years for the roots and trucks to die. Often stumps will go on living for many years to come with new roots developed and sprouts not only appearing at the stump but in the tree’s general area. If stump removal and stump grinding is not an option for you (although they are relatively inexpensive) and you don’t feel the need to burn the stumps or use toxic chemicals, then the use of rock salts might just be for you!

How it is done

  1. Have the tree lopped to as close to ground level as possible. Make sure it is safe and not a tripping hazard.
  2. Drill holes into the side of the stump at a downward angle as close to the top of the stump as you can. Make sure the holes you drill are at least 2 cm in diameter.
  3. Drill additional holes all around the stump. The larger the stump – the more holes it will have.
  4. Fill the holes with rock salt. Compress the rock salt in using a rod.
  5. (Optional) If you are not concerned about nearby vegetation sprinkle salt around the base of the stump.
  6. Cover the stump and salt with soil. Give it a good soak with water so the salt dissolves and enters the soil.
  7. Water the stump every 2-3 days for 5-6 weeks. This helps the salt enter the stump.
  8. If you notice any growth during this period repeat the salting process. Patience is the key to success!

If you’d like the stump to rot faster now that it’s dead, have a read of this organic stump removal process.
