How do you stop a tree stump from re-growing?
Have managed to cut a tree down to quite a low height but am worried about it growing back. It's too complicated to dig out the stump & roots - there's paving close by- so was wondering what a quick & effective way was to treat the stump so that the roots are killed off/ tree stops growing back.
Any advice, gratefully received!

The solution is to use a product such as Roundup Tree Stump and Root Killer. If you cut the tree more than a week ago, it is advisable to cut an inch or so off. Then drill lots of holes into the top surface, and fill the holes with the aforementioned product (in neat form).

Hi depends on what type of tree it was most conifirs/evergreens will not grow back however to make sure you could use a weed/root killer as suggested or you could strip the bark off the stump this will kill the tree. Pete

Hi, the quickest and most effective method is to hire in a stump grinder, they are relatively simple to operate, and reduce the stump to saw dust well below ground level. ... Darren

There are products such as Tree root and stump killer available, some have tried drilling holes in stump and filling with diesol, fire a load of copper nails in.
I dont think any of these are very effective, the best way is to get a stump grinder in and cut it out.
