Ecoplug Max® 100 Plug Pack - MAPP No. 14741

Active Ingredient: 680g/Kg Glyphosate.

Ecoplug Max® is a highly effective patented tree stump killer. Each plug contains 300mg of granular glyphosate herbicide. Once inserted and hammered in place, Ecoplug Max® releases glyphosate through the sides directly into the tree stumps.
Tree Stump Killer
Key Features of Ecoplug Max®:
  • No water is needed to apply Ecoplug Max®, vastly reducing required labour.
  • 95-100% efficacy on treated stumps, preventing regrowth.
  • Ecoplugs take up little storage space and are safe to transport loosely.
  • 100% selective with no effect on surrounding trees or vegetation.
  • Significantly reduces risks to operator and environment from using herbicide to control trees.
  • Ecoplugs mark treated stumps; liquid glyphosates require marker dye to highlight treated stumps.
  • Meets requirements of Sustainable Use Directive to minimise herbicide use and the Water Framework Directive to prevent contamination of waterways with pesticides.
  • Use in all weather, all year round - most glyphosates have a much smaller application window.
  • Significantly reduces the cost of clearing trees by reducing the need for follow up site visits.

How to Apply Ecoplug Max®

Step 1: Cut the tree as close to the ground as possible.

Step 2: Drill 25-30mm deep & 13mm wide using the Ecoplug drill bit to control the depth (the Ecoplug drill bit has a stop plate at 30mm allowing precise depth control).

Step 3: Place an Ecoplug in the hole with the orange end first. The top will protrude by about 10mm.

Step 4: Hit the Ecoplug with a hammer until the head is flush with the stump to push out the sides & release herbicide.

fantastic idea and will be watching with interest on how well it works. To early to tell at the moment.

Ecoplug Max® Tree Stump Killer 100 Plug Pack


At 83p each they are not cheap but if it involves not repeat visits than that saves time. I am unsure if the plastic biodegrades as would prefer not to have plastic plugs left in an ancient woodland!

Ecoplug Max® Tree Stump Killer 100 Plug Pack


Pitchcare told me that the product was suitable for holly and laurel. In fact those woods are so hard that it is almost impossible to drill holes in them for insertion of Ecoplugs,which I am therefore unable to use.

On 30-Oct-2013 the supplier responded:
Many thanks for your feedback. We can confirm we have discussed your comments with the product supplier and they have also confirmed the product can be used on Holly and Laurel as per the recommended rates on the label covering group C. We are aware these are a hard wood but a good drill should be able to drill into these plants unless the stem/trunk is too narrow for any drilling to take place. Many professional contractors use this product on such shrubs. If you do require any further technical assistance on this product, please do not hesitate in contacting our sales team who will be more than willing to discuss application rates and any questions you may have. Many thanks again for contacting us at Pitchcare.
