Dear grant,
I was just wondering what the name of the stuff you use to kill trees with in the hack and squirt method. And can I buy the chemical at a farm store of some kind. Thanks


We use RTU Tordon to kill locust.  We use Garlon or Chopper Gen II to kill oaks and sweetgums, and glyphosate to kill sassafrass.  

I suggest you identify the species of tree  you wish to kill and then Google and see how to control that species.  Always follow the herbicide label!

Enjoy creation,
