how do we eradicate goat willow?


By Bellaur

we cut one down and half a dozen replace it



when you cut it down you need to add a stump/root killer to the stump/cut stem to actually kill it. what is happening is the root stock is sending up fresh shoots from the dormant buds below ground. welcome to the medeival art of coppicing :o)
welcome to GoY as well by the way. someone else might have another solution for you too.
