What will kill them? I cut some down, drilled holes in the stump and filled them with GLY4 back in the summer. Shoots are 3 feet tall on the stumps. Any ideas?

I have heard that Imazapyr will kill any hard wood anywhere close to where it is sprayed. So if you want to kill off a broad area it may work for you.

Yeah, it will take more than Glyphosate.

You know you could just cut a ring completely around the tree, maybe an inch or so deep. That will kill it and you need not spray a thing.

That does not work with Bodock! It will sprout from below the ring and the sprouts will be 15 feet tall in 2 years!

Try painting the stump with straight Tordon next time. I can't vouch for how it will do on the osage, but I've yet to see anything else come back from it.

I try hack and squirt (with Tordon) for the first time this year. I got pretty good results. One tree is dead as a door-nail. The other looks sick.

I also cut one down and painted the stump with Tordon. So far, no saplings/shoots from the stump or roots.

Not sure if that works on any tree. I cut a ring around a sugar maple about five years ago. It's alive and well.

Had a neighbor that tried to burn it. Not so good. I felt bad for the person's chainsaw that cut it.
