    Default DR TreeChopper in South Texas Huisatche

    Has anyone had any experience with the treechopper on huisatche in pastures damaged by hogs where the ground is not smooth like they show on the demo. I have some areas that are new growth about 1" to 2 1/2 " which it probably will work on. I have another pasture which solid huisatche and mesquite saplings that have been shredded for 20 years or more and have multiple stems at ground level. These have large underground trunks in most cases, and the ground is rough. I was thinking of cutting with the "TreeChopper", and following with an application of Remedy/Diesel on the stumps.
    Any ideas welcome.

    The brush busters information from Texas A&M is, without doubt, the best information you can get and follow.

    I used their formulas for Reclaim and also Remedy on mesquite...takes years to get it all, but have achieved near eradication on my place....less than 50 plants to spray this year.

    Their recommendations will give you best results. Any other approach will be less effective or ineffective. Mesquite and huisatche are extremely difficult to control.
    Joy is having the tools you need and needing the tools you have!
