Chaste Tree

What will kill this pest? Our neighbor's chaste tree hangs over the back fence and seeds our backyard so we are constantly cutting down sizeable stalks as they grow so quickly.

We don't want to kill his tree but we do want to discourage the larger "saplings" in our yard from getting any bigger. Is there any way to kill them or do we need to just dig them up?

RE: Chaste Tree

Well I would imagine that your laws allow you to cut off any foliage that is in your yard i.e. the over hanging branches. If you wanna dig them up then I'd wait until they went dormant.

RE: Chaste Tree

Sometimes you can pull up little trees after a rain, but when I have a seedling tree that I can't pull out, in my case it's likely to be hackberry with roots that go deeply very fast, I cut it off near the ground and put a drop of full strength broad leaf weed killer on the stump. That kills it. Be careful when applying it; don't breath it and don't get it on your skin.
