help: bindweed is coming over from neighbour!

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 11:06

Hi All,

I have to update you on this!

You can't imagine what happened!
Having the bindweed mostly under control with Roundup (thanks for the suggestion!) the problem with the fence started. The fence needs redoing, but I did not want to put up a new fence, the bindweed climbs up and the tenants start to pull on the bindweed breaking up the trellies of the fence again!

Now a wonder has happened!

The property was sold to someone who has a horticultural background!
We discussed the bindweed and Ivy will go and we might replace the fence with a hedge

This is better than Christmas!!!

Hi All, we did cut the back to the healthy looking wood and will see if it recovers! the guy who did it for us, said if it is something in the roots the rest will die off and he will come back and take it out for us for a small fee!

when we did cut it before, we also had someone to do it for us!

I definitely get a professional in as there is another tree next too it I want to be looked at!

thanks a lot all for your help and advise!

I'll update you if it could be rescued or had to go!

I'll keep my finger's crossed though!

and if I get a professional to do it, do I need to look for an arborist or tree surgeon? thanks a lot!

I started to cut off the dead twigs - the question is will it help or does it need to be chopped further with the chain saw?

is it possible that it is a reaction on the storms we had last fall? it is noticable that only thinner parts of the twigs are affected!
I will feed it well over the summer and see what happens.

It does not look like any of the mentioned diseases to me!

it was there when we moved in and since we did cut it back once when I counted 5 rings. this is about two years ago, so I guess it is about 7 years old. I will look at the link, thank you!
