Award in Safe Installation of Pesticide Plugs in Tree Stumps (PA6pp Ecoplugs)

City and Guilds / NPTC Level 2

(PA6pp Ecoplugs)

PA6pp Install Ecoplugs into Tree Stumps
This course enables you to use Pesticide Plugs (PP) aka Ecoplugs which are a safe product used to kill tree stumps and prevent regrowth.
Stumps and roots have stored energy which means they can sprout new shoots once cut, which produce bushy re-growth in a matter of months in some species.  Ecoplugs can be used all year round to kill Alder, Elm, Aspen, Birch, Beech, Lime, Maple, Rowan, Willow, Ash and many more.
This is a safe process that can be carried out in small or large areas and in a variety of situations such as railway embankments, golf courses and parks.
