We use Remedy, no license is required and it's very effective.

I agree with Dun. I have had virtually 100% success killing a variety of trees, shrubs and brush using Remedy and diesel for a "basal stem treatment". Have had a good bit LESS sucess using Remedy and water plus a surfacant for the foliar treatment. Read the label regarding stem treatment. Label says to mix 25/75 Remedy/diesel but I have had good luck going with 20/80 to save a few bucks. Remedy is very effective but not cheap. Also, the good thing about the basal stem treatment is that, unlike foliar treatment, you can apply Remedy in virtually any month of the year, assuming the lower foot or two of the tree or shrub is not wet or covered with snow. I've applied it in 104 degree heat here in Texas in July, and also 75 degree weather in December and I sure as hell prefer the later!

Yessir, Remedy will work, alright, and if you just gotta recoup that extra bit of grass to stay solvent, I agree - the plum thicket has to go. But man, I like plum butter and quail too much to get rid of all the bushes!

That's the reason we leave a lot of blackberry thickets scattered around in the pasture. All fencelines other then hot-wire are left to grow up into jungles. We kill most multiflora roses though

Around here raspberries grow in the edges of the woods. We're converting several areas to habitat by killing out the fescue and letting the ragweed and lespedeza grow wild. If we had a lot of plum/wild cherry, because of the toxicity of the wilted leaves we would probably fence the cows out and just leave it for the wild critters.
