Mystery plants / weeds that I can't kill with weedkiller

I have an ancient flame gun, it terrifies me. I don't use it any more. The only place it would be useful is on the drive and I live in a wooden house

I've got cherry suckers all over my lawn CR. and alder suckers on another patch of grass. After time they form a knot of growth that stands proud of the lawn, that's when it becomes a nuisance.  

But I'd rather have those than JKW or mare's tail

What to do about it. Hmm.

 Can you identify the tree? If it's gone, (which is often the case, chopping trees down stimulates them to drastic action), you're safe to spot treat the suckers with a weedkiller. Treating the suckers will affect the tree if it's still there

It's a tree sucker, a poplar by the look of it.

A flame gun works well on annual weeds because it burns off the top and there's nothing much to regrow. Just a minor setback for the above collection.

Double strength. That could be part of the problem. These things are best used as prescribed. A quick death of top growth is not what you want, you want slow and total death of the root as well. But there is no instant fix for weeds of this quality. 'dt cut all the tops of, wait for good strong regrowth, not a few little scraps, and respray according to instructions
