How to Kill Thick Multiflora Rose Canes

Posted by achang89 NJ Z6b (My Page) on

The canes are wrist or even ankle sized, attached to the tree trunks and limbs. I can cut them down. But how can I kill the roots in the ground??? I can not dig them out. Not only it is too hard to dig, but I'll also disturb the soil and cause some erasion.

Any good ideas? Thanks.

One way to accomplish this is to apply a herbicide labeled for this use to the freshly cut rose canes. Herbicides with triclopyr as the active ingredient are often used for this, and only a tiny amount is needed. This will kill the root of the plant.

Or you can wait. In parts of the midwest and spreading a mite was released to carry a fungus that kills multiflora roses. It has already killed mine. The kicker is that it also kills garden roses that have multiflora roses in their heritage.
