    Can anyone give me some suggestions on how to rid my property of "Skunk Cabbage"? There are too many to dig up and I have tried Roundup but it does not appear to be working. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Try 2,4-d or class 40a both are broad leaf weed killers. or pramitol that is a root killer so spray at base not on leaves.

    Keifer, I thought Pramitol was a soil sterilant. Yes, it will kill anything but nothing will grow for a year. Am I wrong?

    Thanks for the advice. I used a broadleaf weed killer with the 2,4-d this weekend and it seems to be working.
