    I have about 12 bushes of pompass grass, standing about 11ft tall. What is the best way to kill, destroy, or remove pompass grass?

    Dig it out and sell it to someone who wants it if you can.

    Try some Roundup. I would think that would work. Or other wise like said before. Dig it up and try to sell it. Or do some landscaping work and sell it on a job. That stuff isn't cheap if you buy it retail.

    :D We deal with Pampas grass all the time and have found a simple way to deal with it . So well in fact we have almost all of the people in our small town calling us come spring to cut it down . We tie a rope about 18inches up from the bottom and cinch it up tight . We then cut below the rope with a chain saw to cut it off . We then carry the bundle to the trailer and remove the rope . ( HARD JOB MADE EXTREMELY EASY !!!!! ) Very little clean up afterwards . If they want it gone then soak around the roots and dig it up . If it is a large clump we will chunk it in quaters. Hope this helps ! :angel:
