Elderly lustful to eradicate

Unread Messageby Paul72 » 11/07/20, 14:46

Hello,

At my father's place, there is lurid elderberry which has more or less invaded 5000m2 of land. He would like to destroy it because it reduces the area of ​​land for the donkeys that graze on it, and it always gains more each year; !
Problem: a large part is in a wetland, the rest upstream. Uneven and stony terrain.

Ideas ?

"The only way to destroy the holiest is to plow the field as many times as we see it growing back; ten times, twenty times in a year if necessary; & each time, the plow must be followed by a woman, by children, in order to pick up the roots & to carry them out of the field: it is by dint of exhausting the plant by new suckers, that we succeed to destroy it. If the plow is not to be used, women and children can dig the earth with the pickaxe, & c. "

Well, it dates from 1784! Maybe there has been better since then? And you must have a wife and children. : Lol:

to stay in humor
try the roundup, you might find an old bottle from behind the fagots with a good vintage of glyphosate : Mrgreen:

I proposed round up + sodium chlorate but there is more. Too bad it would have been perfect in a wet area to keep it clean.

(Humor too)

Otherwise make the donkeys work with a plow but not sure that the owner is ok

Why this solution, when "If one does not want to use the plow, women & children can with the pickaxe dig the ground,"?"

The "women and children ..." solution must be put in context and, from this point of view, it is anachronistic.
I would rather see a recourse to an eco-participation of city dwellers (relatives, city dwellers: be careful with the carbon footprint!) Too sedentary and who would find there, at little cost, a saving activity.

Proven or trying? : Wink:
Note that I only offer a "set up" of your solution and that this is in no way a categorical rejection! : Cheesy:
