Just wondering if anyone here has found a better method to get rid of it other than by spraying herbicides?
It would be too expensive to use herbicides on this size of property and also not desirable since cattle are in all the pastures.
I could dig it up with a backhoe, but it would probably take over a year. If a tractor and shredder are used, it'll just spread it around more.
Maybe I can weld together some kind of heavy pull behind implement that'll thoroughly pinch and chop each pad up enough that they can't grow roots.
Anyone have any fresh ideas?
Looks like no matter the method used, it's gonna take months to tackle it all.
Have already learned the hard way what happens when you think your gloves are thick enough to withstand the thorns. Those teeny tiny ones just go right through and into your palms. Ouch!!
