Ranger Pro Herbicide will not harm mature trees when applied around the base of a tree. Just be sure to avoid drift/over spray from contacting foliage.
Ranger Pro Herbicide will not kill trees unless applied as a cut stump application. It would be best to cut the tree down and then treat the stump.
You can paint Ranger Pro on the stump at full strength. It would also be advisable to drill into the stump or make cuts so that the stump will take up the product better. Please see the Label for complete application instructions.
If cutting down trees or thick bushes like palmettos, then you can brush on the fresh cuts either a glyphosate product like Ranger Pro Herbicide or a product containing triclopyr, such as Fertilome Brush Killer and Stump Killer (undiluted). If the stumps have already been cut, then it would be best to cut again and then apply the herbicide immediately. Keep in mind that this is only to prevent new growth. If you need the stumps removed, then there is no substitute for physically removing the stumps and remaining roots.
Ranger Pro Herbicide is a non selective post emergent herbicide and it will kill just about any type of vegetation that it is sprayed on.
No, Ranger Pro Herbicide is not an insecticide and is not labeled to kill any kind of insect. This product is only labeled to kill various types of weeds and brush. Please see our Flea Pest Guide for information about flea treatment.
Ranger Pro is formulated as a water-soluble liquid with surfactant, therefore no additional surfactant is needed. Ranger Pro moves through the plant from the point of foliage contact to and into the root system. It is then absorbed into the soil and breaks down naturally, and therefore will not spread through the ground and kill neighboring plants. Please refer to dilution table on page 3 of the product label for different strengths of dilution.
Ranger Pro Herbicide label lists PPE as follows:
Applicators and other handlers must wear: long-sleeved shirt and long pants, shoes plus socks. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning/maintaining Personal Protective Equipment.

Ranger Pro Herbicide is mixed with water only as directed on the product label.
Ranger Pro is a nonselective herbicide, meaning that it will kill just about any plant or weed that it is sprayed on. However, once the weeds in the area that you have treated are dead, it will not prevent any future plant growth from occurring. You will need to either re-treat with Ranger Pro if any other weeds pop up in the area, or treat the area with a pre-emergent herbicide to prevent future weed growth.
