Gordon's T-Zone worked nicely for me. Killed the poison ivy. Add a bit of non-ionic surfactant.

I am that guy, and charge rates close to the same as if I'm putting on my tree climbing saddle.

burn it

fall season is the best time to kill the annoying brush (poisonous plants and briers). Right as the plants start to go dormant, cut them with a weedeater, then immediately after spray with 41% glyphosate mixed at 3oz per gallon. The open wound will suck the chemical down into the root system and kill it. Then with it going into the dormant stage, it wont have enough energy to recover.

As someone else said, you can mix twice the amount of glyph. However, this causes the plant to actually "burn up" and will not have the same effect as using a lower dose. It might seem like it works better because the plant turns yellow a lot faster, but thats simply not the case.

J/K on burning it btw, DONT DO THAT

Is glysophate a new product?

I've never heard of it.

Are there desirable trees\shrubs in the area you need to work in? Because Brushmaster works great as well, but not if you have trees\shrubs.
