In order to lower human risk, the Buckthorn Blaster was designed with a foam applicator tip which eliminates drift and spillage and reduces the risk to non-target native plants.
It also uses less herbicide, as the chemical is released with a little pressure on the tip to the targeted cambium or outer edge of a cut stump.
You can use Buckthorn Blaster on any undesirable woody or herbaceous plant (with stems). Some examples provided by Cheryl include non-native honeysuckles, Canada thistle, motherwort, poison ivy and burdock. It is most effective when applied after the plant has leafed out and above freezing temperatures.
Cheryl sells Buckthorn Blasters on her website, www.buckthornblaster.com as well as on her company website, www.landscape-restoration.com along with the blue dye.
