Best way to get rid of swallow-wort?
I have "dog strangling vine" (swallow-wort) all over my yard. It's invasive up here in New England. What's the best way to clear it out for good, so I don't have to fight it every year?
I'm sorry you have this invasive species to battle. It is a multi-year battle to get rid of it. It spreads via seed and rhizomes so hand-pulling won't kill it. It has to be dug out and sprouts from seed and left behind root pieces are treated with foliar herbicide. Here are the details: https://efotg.sc.egov.usda.gov/references/public/MN/797SwallowWort..pdf
