weed in weigela bush
How can I get rid of a weed maple tree that is growing in amongst a weigela bush. I have a weigela bush that has had a maple tree growing from the base of the bush for a few years now. I have repeatedly cut it back but it still keeps growing. Can I use weed killer on the cut without endangering the bush?

You can cut the weed tree down as far as you can and paint the cut end with a full strength herbicide.
This should kill the tree.
Remember the herbicide will kill everything it comes in contact with so be cautious.
