I learned about Lontrel this year. Its an "over the top" chemical that will kill weeds, but not plants with a wood type of growth. I also remember that its pricey.

Lontrel is a great product for controling weeds in evergreens.
If you read the label you can spray over the top in christmas tree
nurseries and similar areas but it plainly says not to spray over the top in the landscape.

With that said, most landscapers spray over the top with it on evergreens like junipers. If you go too hot, sorry no recourse.

You can use as low as 1/8th oz. per 1000 sq. ft.

The active ingredient is chlopyrilid which is one of the two actives in Confront. It is also on the chopping block of herbicides available for use in residential landscaping. Get it while it's still grandfathered for use in the residential market.
