WHAT CAN I DO TO GET RID OF IT?
• Cut down and paint stumps (all year round): cut above pink ‘collar’ at base and apply glyphosate (250ml/l) or metsulfuronmethyl 600g/kg (1g /L). Leave stems and leaves on site to rot down.
• Dig or pull out small plants (all year round). Do not compost or they can survive indefinitely. Leave on site to rot down or hang rhizomes in trees to dry out and then burn them, or dispose of them at a refuse transfer station.
• Spray dense patches away from roots of vulnerable species (all year round): metsulfuron-methyl 600g/kg (5g/10l knapsack). Add penetrant in winter. Don’t replant sprayed sites for 6 months.
