Hitting them with 1 part Remedy Ultra and 3 parts diesel. Add a little blue dye to keep track of who got whacked in the patch and prepare for a sunburn lol. So far have put down about 16 gallons of spray and things are browning up nicely. Patch right of fence below was sprayed a week ago. Their dead now.

Planning on letting that field grow all summer and doing a late winter burn to clean it up. Lot of yucca carcasses lol.

They're planted here as ornamentals. I have a few growing around the place.

Had quite a few on a ranch I was clearing last summer.

Used the root rake attachment on my loader, and they came right out. Piled them with the brush for burning.

30338, the Remedy and diesel with kill just about anything. wink

Girdling some big locust trees and coating them with it too. So hoping your are correct on that! Kill the yuccas and cleaning up that pasture. Hoping the native stuff grows like crazy.

Thanks Don. I'll check how mine are feeling in June and if still alive, will give you a shout.

Is Remedy the same as cycloplor? I have been using it with diesel or used motor oil to kill mesquite trees and yuccas. Seems to work. Cut up the tree for firewood and pour on the stump to keep it from growing back.

Remedy is Triclopyr, so it may be the same active ingredient.

I stand corrected. It is Triclopyr not cycloplor. Thank you for that. It does seem to work well and doesn't take a lot.
