Crossbow on Dwarf fescue and Kentucky Blue Grass mixture
I have tree or brush shoots propogating in relatively new sod - 1 year old. Have tried several lawn weed killers with no results. Is this safe and worth a try? Haven't been able to identify the shoots. Could be from camphor tree but it has never done this before. It is a healthy tree. Doesn't look like any shrub I have either.
Without knowing exactly what type of the plant the shoots hard it is hard to say for sure if the Crossbow Specialty Herbicide - 2, 4-D & Triclopyr will work to kill it. We would recommend maybe having a local lawn care or landscaping company out to see if they can help identify the plant first.
