Killing Roots

Recommended Posts

A few years ago my wife planted a [me] willow on the top edge of our septic tank. I told her that wasn't a good idea but she told me it won't get very big. She was wrong. I have it all dug out but it has a tap root about 3" in diameter going straight down that I can't get pulled out. I'm pretty sure that it's not affecting the tank but it does run along side it. Can I just cut the root and is there something available that can be painted on the root to kill it. Thanks Bobcat

Roundup is foliar active and would need to be applied to leaf material to be effective. Would not be effective as a basal or root treatment.

Thanks for the replies. after some research on the net it seems like roundup will work but make a fresh cut, drill a hole and pout it in the hole and wrap that part of the root with plastic. There are other products that are mentioned also that will work even diesel fuel was mentioned. And also to pound a copper nail into it. Thanks again Bobcat

Copper nail uh? I've for 3 years now been tring to kill buckthorn! I did the holes with roundup--Slowed em down but came back.out of 3-400 buckthorns all but about 30-40 dead these seem immune to roundup.It worked on everything else even willows!

    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
