Subject:  Killing Various Vines - keeping trees safe Date:  3/18/2021  7:43 AM

I'm having a lot of brush, vines, removed from the yard. Not sure the exact variety of vine however some are full of thorns and many without thorns have crept up the trees in excess of 15 foot or so. They have been pulled down, and cut low to the ground as a first step. There are too many to dig each one up by hand. There are several large trees, oak & maple 25-40 feet tall (estimate well over the 2nd story of the house in height), and a smaller 10 foot high dogwood that I'd like to keep healthy.

Does anyone have a good way to kill the vines/brush/wees off without damaging the trees? This area will eventually be grass and perhaps some garden in the future but I assume I'll that will happen next year after the killing process takes place.
