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.

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!

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.
