I hope it has nothing to do with the Dems.
I have 23 acres here in SW VA and a Christmas tree grower is using 20 acres. When he cleared off my hills two years ago with a bulldozer to push down trees, wild blackberry and rose bushes, and create 'roads' for their trucks to bring in workers to maintain and prune the seedlings they planted, they had no idea what a nightmare they were creating.
I 'had' many locust and autumn olive trees that were growing wild here that were always a pita to begin with because they are so invasive...but now I have more than tenfold what I had before and they are coming up everywhere....in the roads they created, all around their trees, invading my 3 acres of yard, etc.
How can any of these trees be eradicated without having to cut them down individually and pour expensive Roundup into the stumps? I'm seriously considering calling our local Agricultural center to see if I can get help financially to do this, but not sure if I can find the massive amount of labor I would need to take care of it.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...I feel like the land is closing in on me.
