Saw Greenbriar

I might have mentioned some time in the past just how much I dislike Saw Greenbriar.

After pulling out about ten square feet of that crap today, I like it even less.  That shit's like barbed wire, only it's alive and grows all over everything.

The sad part is I have at least 100 square feet more to go.  If it weren't underneath power lines, I'd just dig some fire lines and torch the crap.

Saw greenbrier ain't got nothin' on Gorse. Or Jumping Cholla, for that matter.

RoundUp don't kill it?
RoundUp kills lots of shite.

I've dealt with Jumping Cholla. But that's not exactly a hazard in Virginia. Saw Greenbrier is.

Don't know if I've ever dealt with Gorse. I have had to clear out acreage of Himalayan Blackberry, which is a bitch and a half.

OC - I doused it with Round-Up last year. It laughed at me. I doused it again. It didn't even wilt.

Wait for a real rainy day and use one of these, Red Dragon VT 2-23 C Weed Dragon.
Many tool rental places have them, so you don't have to buy to use once.
But they do come in handy for other things too.
