I've got an area along my property line containing weeds, brush and even
a small tree. I'd like to kill this stuff first before removing it. I
already coated it with Ortho Weed B Gone, but it doesn't seem very
effective and I feel I need something stronger.
Thanks for your suggestions.

HD, garden centers, hardware stores, all have products
that are specifically targeted at killing brush. That's
what I'd look for. Weed B gone isn't going to be very
effective because it's a compromise, it has to kill weeds,
but not kill grass. Roundup/glyphosate would be a big
improvement, but for brush, the brush killer products
are a big improvement over that too.
Me too, store brand glyphosate in a pump-up sprayer. I won't see effects
for maybe a week, and a tree will require one or more subsequent
I have some Weed B Gone. So far I haven't found the kind of weeds it
In Ortho, get the Brush B gone.
That is basically home owner grade Garlon. It is good on leafy and
woody plants. It may kill a lot of grasses but cogan grass just laughs
at it. (a particularly invasive 6' tall grass in south Florida)
It is effective on most trees, cut stumps, vines etc.

Actually, a couple of weeks back, this is what I tried first. I bought
a spray called Bayer Advanced which already had like 1% triclor, then I
added a couple of bottles of higher concentration to increase the
percentage. I couldn't find Brush B Gone, so this was my next option.
Anyway, it selectively killed as you seem to point out, but I wanted a
kill all, so bought and used the Roundup concentrate yesterday.
Thanks again to everyone responding here.
