You're right about Root out, despite my recommending it to everyone, it seems to have disappeared from the market.

Next option is SBK - see my blog on tree stumps (but ignore the reference to Rootout, obviously!)

There is also Rid a Root.
As Bamboo says use SBK, or drill holes in the root and fill with sodium chlorate, plug the top with putty.

I believe Root Out was banned as of middle of 2008.
