I have been on the road sawing for a few days, but anyway, at first I used Pathway.  I was a bit disappointed because I thought that it wasn't working, but it's just slower.  Last year I used 8oz or Arsenal per gallon of water.  That worked and fast.  I paid $535 for a 2 gallon jug, which will go a looong way.  I have used Remedy, but am satisfied with my present mix.

thanks for all the tips i'm one the road now so i can't look at the bottle but i think it is for around the house use so it will not kill flowers and things it was a quart bottle that you mixed 1 cup to ten gallon of water it may not kill a stump if poured on without mixing with water
thanks alan

I use Garlon or Element 4 for basal bark applications frequently in the non-growing seasons , mostly late fall and winter but it is useful year round. It is an oil base herbicide and its cousin 3A, both Garlon and Element trade names is water based like Round-Up and others. I don't know which of these I like better in the growing season but 3A is a little more long-termed in its effectiveness as it takes longer to break down than Round-Up. Someone mentioned black locust a ways back and 50% Round-Up is killer on it if applied cut-stump or in a frill cut in late fall.
