    Honeysuckle herbicide

    What herbicides do you all use to kill jap bush honeysuckle? I'm wondering what's the most cost effective. I've been using 50%glyphosate/50%water. After you cut with loppers or chainsaw, how long do you have to spray the stump? Thanks all

    3rd leaf apple tree pruning

    Would it be ok to trim back all branches under 4ft from the ground back to the central leader? Or should you let the branches 12"-48" high grow horizontally?

    Where did my apples go

    I think it had to be squirrels because the nearby limbs from other nearby trees would not support a raccoon's weight. The apples were about double the size of a golfball the last I saw them.

    Where did my apples go

    Yes, I spray every other weekend imidan/captan unless we get a lot of rain. The deer have the leaves eaten as high as they can reach. This mature tree is 14' tall . I tried to trim the nearby trees so nothing could climb onto it from another tree. The stove pipe is 24" long and 24" off the...
