    yes, Henro that is my problem as far as tearing into them with the tractors,where they start is where it starts to slope,and it's thick enough that you really can't tell how quick it drops,that's why if I could get rid of the briars and the other brush then I could work on taming the slope.

    Depending on how many you have...a brush cutter will work...It will take some work...once you get them down to the ground then you can stay on top of them....been there done that......

    If you have the time.. nothing gets rid of briars easier than just mowing them repeatedly.. especially right before they flower, seed, and retire for the winter..

    Glyphosate (roundup) mixed to a strength of 36gm/L and sprayed early in the growing season will kill briar.

    Unfortunately the seeds in the ground around the bush will keep appearing for a number of years so you have to re spray every year until you win. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    If one bush goes to seed the the birds will re spread them across your property

    That's right. If you mow them, it will get rid of them. You will have to mow they 2-3 times a year, to kill them.

    Yep.. and more is better. I've found that my grass outgrows the briar easilly. So I have been whitteling away at the briar and not hurting my grass to awefull bad.

    You wont kill Multi Flora rose by mowing it.....you will be able to stay ahead of the return of the plant by mowing it . This stuff is the most resistant type of plant I have ever seen,a chemical is the only way to kill it. It is terrible stuff to have around.

    I'm not sure I want to use any chemicals,because my pond is only 20' to 30' down from where these briars are,they are up on the bank of one side of my pond,there is no water directly below the briars but it would definiately end up in the pond. would dynamite get roots and all and then drag to back of property and burn the remains.
