black greasewood

Asked September 28, 2017, 2:16 PM EDT

How do you control/kill this bush when you can't dig up the roots? I'd rather not use poison, but if that's my option I'd like some idea's about what to use, Doseage, Time of year to apply, And so on. Perhaps someone over there has some thoughts and/or experience with this plant. Thank's for your time, Jerry

Jerry,

I don't have any easy solutions for you on this one. Your ability to control greasewood with mechanical solutions is limited. The best bet is to use a herbicide for control. The USDA has a good bulletin on greasewood control with recommended herbicides and approaches. Here is the link to the fact sheet https://plants.usda.gov/plantguide/pdf/pg_save4.pdf.
