  1. Can anyone help? One of our customers asked the lads to treat the stump of a yew we had just removed. We only carry glyphosate and so it was applied. 3 months later, customer is complaining of an adjacent yew dying back badly. My questions are: a) second yew is about 5m from removed yew (both roughly 450mm dbh), how likely is this due to grafted roots and translocation of the glyphosate? b) as I suspect the answer to a) is "very likely", is there anything that can be done for the affected yew to sustain it with the hope that it might on some new cambium and survive. Your thoughts? Cheers
  2. Hi, first post on arbtalk, I do gardening and looking to get into treework. A customer has what I call a weed tree (excuse ignorance don't even know species) but one of those that self propagate in large gardens like sycamores and oaks do). Anyway I lopped off a couple of limbs of the offending tree back in April and it is now fighting back with vigorous epicormic shoots around the wounds. The owner says the whole tree can come out and I wanted to drill the cut stumps in a ring around the new wood (each stump 6" dia approx ) and pour a 1:4 glyphosate 360:water in the holes I make (with a spade bit) . I've killed off sycamores, budleas etc with this method before, but here there are two palms or what maybe one with co-domininant? trunks growing right next to the tree I want to kill. The owner wants to retain the palms, is there any danger of the glyphosate root kill in a tree next to it harming the palm?. I know glyphosate is supposed to be neutralized on contact with soil, but am not up on if the roots of neighbouring trees may transfer fluids between dissimilar specimens by contact. Perhaps completely felling the tree would be enough to stop the epicormic shoots, but if its anything like a sycamore, only chemicals seem to work. I don't think the owner wants to pay to grind it. Thanks for reading and any replies. Some really useful stuff on here. Just need a small fortune for my chainsaw certs. Seems to be more money in training people than actually doing the work. Those that can't do teach and all that. Perhaps I'm too cynical (and tight)
