    Do any of you know of an off the shelf product or a personal concoction that you know will work. I have to do something before the fence is ruined.

    Sometimes trees just die....for various reasons....

    A strong dose of Tordon applied to the ground on your side of the fence to control invasive plants will almost certainly have enough ground activity to get the job done. Especially if accidentally applied before a light rain.

    Copper Sulfate will work as well with more of a long term effect.

    Tordon is the answer. It's labeled for brush killer and is available at most farm stores without a pesticide license. Best way is to injure the bark to the growth layer and spray the cut. A saw or hatchet to girdle it and then add tordon will quickly kill the tree and stump.

    They are just saplings at best. But they are pushing on the fence.

    I have fought 2 that would just come back up the next year. What worked is I cut them at ground level with my little rechargeable chain saw, put a couple of big flower pots over the stumps and put a brick on top so it wouldn't blow away. I left them there all summer and all winter. No regrowth at all, but the stumps are still there at ground level.

    Use to use Tordon when clear cutting ditch banks and the trees will never grow again. Not even mulberrys

    Roundup or some other heavy duty weed killer sprayed on them. I accidentally killed some of my little fruit trees by being too liberal with the spraying, even though I tried to contain the spray. I learned that young trees are very vulnerable to such over the counter sprays.

    I enjoy killing invasive honey suckle. You will waste your time and money with round-up.

    I just cut down my mulberry tree that was growing into the neighbors yard. Every bird in the neighborhood would hang out in the trees surrounding it, and the cars were their after dinner target.
    I find you offensive for finding me offensive.
