Spraying around fruit trees with exposed roots

I have a lot of growth around my fruit trees (apple, pear and peach} and most have exposed roots. I'm mostly wanting to kill the poison ivy as I can't use the weed trimmer on it without getting it on me. Would it harm the trees or the fruit?


Hi-Yield 2, 4-D Selective Weed Killer is labeled to only kill broadleaf weeds and should not harm mature trees.  Be sure none of the roots are cut before applying the product so the tree does not absord the weed killer.  Another option would be to use the all natural Avenger Weed Killer Concentrate which is OMRI listed and approved for Organic Gardening and Organic Production by the USDA.
