Anyone know how to permantly kill a Honey Locust Tree??
When we moved in three years ago, there were two or three of those monsters growing on the hill behind the house. Those suckers have 4" spikes growing out of the bark up and down the trunk. One of them was a fair sized tree and I kept some of the wood - sans thorns - for turning. It's actuall pretty nice wood to turn.
I cut all of the trees down as close to the ground as possible, drilled the stumps and poured in stump killer, weed killer, salt and anything else I can think of... The stumps are evidently all connected and are spread over about 2000 square foot area of the yard. I just spent my afternoon with a weed whacker cutting sprouts all over the yard.
