"Will keep an eye out next growing season, Brett. Does it ultimately result in any mortality? In the meantime, it might reduce effectiveness of glyphosate foliar spray due to compromised leaf and conductive tissue in twigs/branches. Tim"

"Hi, Jim. Remnants of metal fencing indicate the former location of a fence. So your implication that they may not accurately show the location of the property boundary is sound. Fences could have been built well to one side or the other of a known…"
