recommend herbicide for honeysuckle

Asked March 21, 2015, 8:47 AM EDT

I have 30-year old Hetzi juniper hedgerow, about 300 feet long,15 feet deep, and about 12 feet tall. It is full of honeysuckle which I have to pull out by hand late each spring. Can you recommend a herbicide to kill honeysucle without harming the Hetzi? Thank you,

There is no chemical that you can spray on both plants and just kill the honeysuckle. You will need to apply an herbicide directly on the honeysuckle without getting it on the juniper. You can do this with a paintbrush.
