Vine removal help


I have an invasive vine that is growing into the backyard trees. Trying to identify it so I can have a plan to remove it. I was thinking of cutting the main trunk of the vine and it would die in the tree. Its all over the backyard fence so need to clean it up somehow.

Yes, the growth the trunk is supporting will die, then when/if new growth appears treat the leaves with Glyphosate to kill the plant. If that on the fence isn't close to plants that need to be protected, either on your side or a neighbor's side, I would spray with a light mist of Glyphosate then swab with an upright broom like a buck deer threshing with his antlers during the rut , while the Glyphosate is wet, which will give a lot greater coverage to the vulnerable bottom side of the leaves.

Very little is required as this unwanted Walnut tree was killed, as a test, with 1 drop swabbed on each leaf with a sponge and backer board. Allow 10-14 days to see results. Sometimes good things take a little longer.

Re: Vine removal help


Wow. That is a crazy result using Glyphosate. If I spray the vine on the fence, will the branches of the vine also wither away? Or do I need to chop it up with a branch cutter?

I will spray this week and wait a few weeks to see what happens.

Re: Vine removal help


The dead woody stems will remain, to be disposed of, as they would with any method when killing the roots.
