If you have shoots coming out directly from the stump or roots, you can cut the shoot and apply Ferti-lome Brush Killer and Stump Killer directly to the fresh cut, It’s not labeled to harm your grass but we do not recommend making direct applications. Apply it undiluted to the freshly cut stumps/roots and then use it at either full strength or the highest dilution on any shoots that are coming up around the main stump. This will penetrate further into the root system to kill it out.
