is this product good to kill large pine tree?
Paulie on Mar 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have never used it to kill a pine tree (yet) but I have used it on elm, pecan, and willow. The pecan tree was about 6' and growing in an area that would eventually cause foundation damage. I made deep cuts in the bar, applied it, and it died quickly. The elm and willow trees were cut down. I put this on the stumps and have not had any shoots grow from them. Follow the instructions and it should work. I have read several reviews on the internet that farmers use it in their pasture to kill cedar trees.
Can i use torton rtu during rainy season?
Mario on Aug 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. Cut the wood cleanly and apply it in the amount specified (very small amount). It should kill the plant within a week or so. Just be careful not to spill, splash or allow runoff of Tordon on anything you don't want killed.
I have aspen trees that I want, but need to control the suckers from the roots. If I spray the small sucker trees growing from the roots, will it also kill the parent tree?
MarkW on Jul 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes spraying the cut suckers will kill the parent tree and may even kill other aspen trees that have root grafts with the parent tree, which is a common occurrence.
Will Tordon work painting it on boxwood stump?
gdmdjck on May 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. That's what I used it for. I was putting in a rock garden over the top of the stumps. I had cut the stumps to ground level and then I painted the Tordon RTU on them. So, far they haven't appeared yet.
I have cherry sprouts coming up all my over my yard. Will Tordon kill them?? Can I apply directly on the leaves??
Sue H on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes the Tordon RTU will kill the sprouts comming up.
If I spray triclopyr to control prickly pear, will it harm farm animals, such as cows?
James D on Apr 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mesquite and Pricklypear Cactus
For pricklypear cactus in association with mesquite, apply a tank mix of ½ to 1 pint of Alligare
Triclopyr 4 with 1 to 2 pints of Tordon* or Picloram 22K per acre. For a higher and more uniform
plant kill of pricklypear, use the 2 pint per acre rate of Tordon* or Picloram 22K. To
control pricklypear while providing improved control of mesquite, Tordon* or Picloram 22K
may also be applied in combination with Reclaim*. Refer to the Tordon* or Picloram 22K and
Reclaim* labels for additional information and treatment recommendations. Apply as an
oil/water emulsion in 4 gallons or more total volume per acre for aerial applications or in 10
gallons or more total volume per acre for ground applications. Use no more than 1 gallon of
oil per acre for both aerial and ground application.

• On use sites that may be grazed, including rights-of-way, pasture, fence rows, and rangeland,
do not apply more than 2 lbs. ae per acre per year of triclopyr (2 qts./A/yr of Alligare
Triclopyr 4).
will this product kill prickly pear?
James D on Mar 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A better control product would be to use Tryclopyr to control prickly pears.

is TORDON good to kill weeds and grass and all other vegetations? what do you recommend? need it for parking lot and around the building use. thanks
Joey on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is meant to kills stumps, so that they do not continue to re-germinate. Pramitol would be a better choice for this type of application.
i red a disortation from the LSU ag center that Tordon is what kills Chinese Tallo Trees. do you know this to be true. i don't want to waste my money buying this if it don't work. thank you
weber on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes Tordon RTU or the active ingredient Picloram is recommended for the use and control of the Chinese Tallo Tree. The Chinese Tallo Tree is a common sight in the southern states and sometimes referred to as a "chicken Tree".
Clearcast is another recommended product that seems to be highly effective.

Tordon RTU works
Living in the deep south, with a year round growing season, makes it a constant battle to stay ahead of volunteer mimosa's, oak, privet, magnolia's.

Since I've learned of Tordon RTU, progress is being made.

Highly recommend this product.

It Works
Works better than I thought it would. Applied directly to tree stump and with 1 week it was obvious it was working great.
Shipping was fantastically fast. Customer service was great.

Tordon RTU - Kill that stump once and for all!
Very effective stump killer. I use a small sprayer that you find in the travel section of Walmart cosmetics. (Fits nicely in a basket on my ATV!)I adjust the nozzle to generate a light yet relatively coarse spray. I spray the Tordon RTU on the outer edge of the freshly cut stump to wet the cambium layer. All done!
