The plastic plugs once they have done their job could be removed a few months 
later, might not be easy.
I will have a look at some Poplars treated locally to me to see how easy 
unless somebody already knows.
The problem then arises as to how to dispose!

The issue of plastic is massive and global and there is no overnight cure.

Reading thru' the product label & safety sheet, the one thing it fails to 
mention is the material that it comes in - are they not plastic 
"bullets"..and what happens to those plastic bullets once the chemical has 
been released & the stump decayed? 

 

On  a similar vein I, as I am sure we all do, see all those lovely planted 
trees with plastic protection around them...the stakes may or may not get 
taken away but the plastic protection remains for years, sometimes almost too 
brittle to remove. We took a whole lot of plastic shelters off an area 
planted, piled them up and then realised we had no-where to dispose of 
them..very bulky...

 

Are we not just littering the environment on the grounds that we are managing 
trees, so our actions must be green?
