Since it has been raining for a couple of weeks, I was able to pull out
hundreds of Scotch Broom plants, with thicknesses up to the size of my
wrist (due to the 2 foot deep taproot being in mud at this time) off
my hilly property (mostly by pulling downhill with all my weight).
But the Spanish Broom is still very difficult to pull out.
Generally I cut the Spanish Broom with a chain saw or with clippers
(depending on the thickness) and then spray immediately (within a few
minutes) with Glyphosate weed killer on the cut portion.
For the most part, that works - but I still have many thousands of these
Spanish Broom plants scattered about to eradicate.
Do you have any good tricks (like the one we already have for Scotch
Broom) for removing Spanish Broom in the wet winters?
