I'm in the process of ridding my land of black locust trees . I like Remedy since it kills the tree and discourages the spreading that occurs when you cut them down .

I plan on using the wood for walking sticks , staffs (maybe a few breaking sticks or jig poles) and for garden trellises .

Question is : will the chemicals in Remedy stay in the wood and perhaps leach out to the soil or users' hands ?

I decided to spray my fence lines with Remedy a few months ago. I was concerned about it leaching into the soil. Triclopyr the active ingredient in Remedy is not residual in the soil. I forgot most I what I read when I was looking into it, but it seemed to be a pretty mild chemical as far as that goes.

Thanks . I like using it because you don't have to spray the entire tree (just part of the trunk) .

Guess my real concern is the amount left in the wood after it dies . I'd hate to sell someone a walking stick that could possibly make their hand rot off . eeks

Might be a little more work, but could you cut what you wanted first, then spray?

I've tried that and it's not any more work than the other method . Just seems like (IME) that they tend to spread less if you kill before cutting . I'll try using more Remedy on the stump and see if that works .

Locusts are a beach wink but they're a really hard wood ( like Bois d'arc) useful for fence posts , furniture , etc. Have to be careful and let 'em dry out for a couple of years when using on a fence , though . A "fresh" post can sprout a new tree .
