    No sense just cutting down woody weeds, they will grow right back, and usually denser. Cut weed tree or vine as close to horizontal plane as possible, then drill a few holes in top of stump. Fill holes and flood cut with FULL STRENGTH woody plant killer. Many types on market, most of them just combos of 2,4-D or Roundup. I have always liked triclopyr, if you can find it as active ingredient. I use a large eyedropper for applying herbicide.<p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana<br>
