Locust Trees
Q.

I killed a locust tree by accident

Zone 3 | Rowena Manuel added on June 14, 2014 | Answered

I killed a locust tree by accident. Can I save it? It is turning yellow and it is not a yellow locust. I goofed on my wide leaf spray once and I must have doubled it. I sprayed near the tree for weeds. I really feel bad about it. I am no longer using sprays. Was it because I used my 80 year old brain? Dumb. Our 10 year old locust trees are turning yellow and the leaves are withering.

Unfortunately, no one makes herbicide antidotes that I've ever heard of. The most you can do is continue good care of the locusts, and hope for the best. Hopefully, they didn't get a big enough dose to kill the tree, just to damage the leaves. I'm going to give you an article on less poisonous ways to control weeds: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/homemade-pet-friendly-weed-killer.htm
