Tansy removal

Hi there. We live on 3 acres in Scio & this year, the tansy invaded our 2 acre pasture where we have one horse. Unfortunately, my husband had a knee injury that prevented him from walking all through June & July, and now we’re trying to catch up on caring for our property. We know that this tansy is toxic and need it gone. But, it’s too hard to pull from the root for removal - we’ve been trying! It’s so tall....almost to my chest....and very thick. We’ve already removed a huge trailer load. Is it safe to mow the rest and leave on the ground to decompose or should we continue with hand removal? Since it’s too hard to pull, we considered using a weed wacker to cut them down to the ground, and then removing the debris. I’ll send a few photos so you can see what we’re dealing with. We want what’s best for our horse & also what will prevent it from growing again. We plan to spray in the fall and spring to get rid of this for good. Any other advice you might offer?

Dying branches in Juniper bushes

Last year you helped me with concerns I had with redwood trees on our property. They look great now. Thank you. My question now has to do with dying branches in our Juniper bushes. We had almost all of the dead cut out last year but the problem seems even worse this year. I thought the problem might be insects so I cut some small branches off and tapped them on a white paper and took pictures of the insects. The most insects came off of the branches that were turning lighter green, the dead branches didn’t have much show up. I’m attaching pictures. I zoomed in as close as I could but the insects are very small. If you think the insects are the problem I would like to know what spray to use and if it should be sprayed before or after cutting out the dead. I appreciate any guidance you can provide.
Best Regards,
Dennis Turkovich
