This project involves the application of Ecoplugs to cut tree stumps, which contain granular glyphosate herbicide; a systematic weed killer. They can be applied at any time of the year, immediately after felling. Minimal PPE and training is required and a high kill rate is expected, resulting in a reduced rate of tree cutting in the future.
This project aims to minimise vegetation re-growth in order to reduce future costs and hazards. The Ecoplug product that will be implemented is much safer and more reliable than traditional herbicide application methods.
