This?



Use a herbicide, roundup makes one just for trees.

Yep, a big family of plants.

Look at the Acer genus of trees (maple). I have tiny Japanese Maples that never will make it past a few feet tall. Most parts of the country have Sugar and norway maples that are 50-70 tall that are also in the Acer family.

It surprised me the first time I learned this, I remember thinking the same thing as you.

I always though of Ficus as this fairly small house plant, but members of the ficus family can look like this:

I have found a mound of salt will kill just about any plant but then it will be a looooong time before anything else will grow there either.

Some things are much more sentive to salts than others. Chemical fertilizers are salt based, that's why you can burn plants with fertilizer. Some things burn easy, other typically more weedy things are very resistant to salts.

I lost a 50 year old 20 foot long Korean Boxwood due to salt run off (winter ice melt salt) 2 years ago, very sad.
