    Q
    Will Tordon kill Camphor trees and suckers?
    A

    Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide does not list Camphor on the product label as controlled.  We apologize but do not have anything labeled to be effective against this type of seedling.  I was able to find an article here that states mowing or removing is best on the seedling trees and that glyphosate is effective it just may take a few applications.  Care should be taken to avoid contact with any desirable grass/plants/trees in the area when using it

    Q
    Does Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide work on Sycamore trees?
    A
    Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide

      is not labeled to work on Sycamore Trees and its suggested by the manufacturer to only be used if you are trained and familiar with that herbicide due to the potential for damage to desirable nearby vegetation.

    If you are wanting to completely kill the tree typically you must kill and remove the stump. To kill a sycamore stump using a stump grinder to grind the stump down to ground level. You will then dig it out with the connecting roots. You could use a stump killer such as Fertilome Brush Killer and Stumper Killer to the newly cut stump within a few minutes after cutting. You would still need to do your part to remove the stump but the Fertilome Brush Killer and Stump Killer will prevent resprouting.

    The Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide is not labeled to control kudzu so we would not recommend using it. Instead a product like BK-32 or Crossbow Herbicide would be a much more effective approach to control.

    Q
    What do I mix with Tordon to spray buckbrush?
    A

    Unfortunately, there are no know products that can be mixed with Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide for the control of buckbrush. According to an article by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, there are other actives that would work better like a 2, 4-D with an ester formulation, this is one of the actives in 2, 4-D LV4 Herbicide.

    Q
    What is the effect when Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide is killing a tree?
    I know from reading how to get this stuff in a tree to start killing it!!! But how then after? What are the effects? Does it start crumbling and falling down to the ground? So if there stuff near the tree or trees I want gone. What could happen?
    A

    After treating a stump with Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide, the tree should be completely dead within one week to 30 days. After a few days, Tordon should have affected the tree enough to remove the stump or root. It does not crumble or dissolve into the ground; you will need to physically remove the dead stump. 

    Keep in mind that Tordon RTU is not for use on any residential areas. This product has a very long soil residual, so it should not be applied near desirable trees, shrubs, or other ornamentals.

    Q
    I have hundreds of elms, is Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide good?
    I have a lot of elms from 1/2
    A
     

    Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide

     will kill elm trees after cutting into them and applying per the label instructions. It is best applied as close to cutting the stump as possible, but you can do it the next day if needed up to a few days later.  You just want to be sure it is applied to a fresh cut stump, not one that has been cut weeks prior. Please see the label for complete application instructions. We would recommend using something like Fertilome Brush Killer and Stump Killer to eliminate small trees. You will cut the tree down and apply the product directly to stump undiluted.

    Q
    Will Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide kill bougainvillea?
    I bought a home with large overgrown bougainvillea plants, want to remove
    A

    Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide does not list list bougainvillea as one of the woody plants it will control however the product label mentions in the Susceptible Plants Section on page 3 that even the smallest amount of spray drift even if not visible could injury broadleaf plants. 

    Fertilome Brush Killer and Stump Killer contains Triclopyr which is known to be effective on harder to kill vines when applied as a stump treatment. Glyphosate would be another option for stump treatments. 

    For stump treatments, start by cutting the vine branches off the trunk and discard branches onto a tarp. As you get closer to the ground, use loppers or a pruning saw to cut the trunk 2-3 inches above the ground. Apply Fertilome Brush Killer and Stump Killer undiluted directly to the freshly cut stump using a paintbrush or sprayer. You will want to check the stump every few weeks for new growth and reapply the herbicide as necessary. 

    Please view the full product label for more information.

    Q
    Will Tordon RTU Specialty Herbicide kill a 100 year old Black Walnut Tree?
    A

    Tordon RTU Spray is not labeled for Walnut Trees therefore we cannot confirm if it would be effective in killing the tree. Black Walnut tree roots can spread out 50-80ft from the tree and are known for resprouting. The most recommended treatment is to cut the stump as low to the ground as possible and apply a product with the active ingredient Glyphosate directly to the freshly cut stump. Direct stump treatments is going to be your best option and will take several months and maybe longer since this tree is so old. Roundup QuickPRO has Diquat as 1 of the 2 ingredients works for a faster knockdown and absorbs throughout the root system better. Drilling into the stump is also sometimes done for the herbcide to absorb quicker into the tree.
