Ferti-lome Cut Vine & Stump Killer RTU uses the active ingredient Triclopyr. Triclopyr is used primary to control broadleaf, woody, and herbaceous weeds while leaving grasses and conifers unharmed. A chemical with this ability to kill certain undesirable plants without harming those around it is called a selective herbicide. Triclopyr is not harmful to the environment if it is used as per the label instructions. For an organic way to treat the stump, please contact the Master Gardener in your county for methods that have been proven to work in your area.
