Hello,For greenbriar control, our most current chemical weed and brush control publication indicates the use of Triclopyr or Dicamba+2,4-D and in both cases recommends mixing with diesel fuel for a basal stem application. I would not think the use of the diesel fuel in a coastal bermudagrass pasture or around desirable trees would be good.So I suggest you contact Extension Range Specialist, James Jackson in Stephenville who deals with weed and brush control daily. Hopefully he will have a better suggestion. His email address is: jamesr.jackson@ag.tamu.edu and his phone number is: 254-968-4144 Hope this helps.Jon GreenCEA-Ag/NR, Parker County
