Controling Tree Seedling

Discussion in 'Pesticide & Herbicide Application' started by LAWNGODFATHER, Aug 11, 2002.

  1. What would be the best way?

    Would a Pre-em applied at a later date to the area around problem trees do the trick?

    Tree seeds & drupes are usually too large in size to be controlled with a pre-emergant. Big seeds have large energy stores so are pretty good at shrugging off the meager residues of popular selective pre's. Non-cultivated sites like gravle lote, industrial sites like pump & generator stations, & rights of ways can be treated with tough herb's like Sahara, Pramitol, etc...but I'd keep these off most residential lots.

    Mowing in lawns works well. Beds just have to be pulled or wicked in most cases.

  3. usually after few exfoliation from mowing, those little "trees" simply disapear.

    you can use corn glutamate, this is a organic fertizler and also has the bennefits of avoiding germination.
