Default Killing small Honey Locust trees

I got about 200 12 to 18 inch honey locust trees sprouting on the property. I have killed big trees using the hack and spray method. I guess I could go around and use the hack and spray method for these guys but theres just too many and I don't relish bending over for hours and hours. Is there an easier method to get rid of this many little ones? I heard spraying with roundup just makes them mad and doesn't kill them completely. Neighbor suggested a propane weed torch.

Have used these and they kill most anything. Do not use close to any trees you want to keep. https://www.pro-serveinc.com/pronone-power-pellets

GrazonNext HL, Grazon P+D, Sendero, Surmount or Chaparral are all brand names of different chemicals.

You can try 1/2% of Remedy in water also, I recommend a dye to so you don't double spray

Propane torch won't do anything but topkill it

Locust is listed on remedy herbicide label. I'd go 1% and 1/2% surfactant

Just drop one Pronone pellet by each one of them.

Remedy recommends 1%. If they're that size you can probably kill em all with 2 gallons at a cost of what...2.00?

I had 200 acres of Freestone County honey locust like you do. Found the Texas A&M Brushbusters articles for killing brush. Brushbusters recommended 1% Grazon PD mixed with water foliar spray for smaller huisache bushes. I mixed 2% Grazon (about 1.5 ounces per gallon) to water with a good surfactant, used a 14 gallon spot sprayer on four wheeler and got a 98% kill rate. Low cost solution to locust. Locust will turn brown within 10 days - let it die and fall down.
I had so many locust that it took an hour to spray 14 gallons, now it takes 3 hours cause the locust are hard to find. Google TAMU Brushbusters.

If you have to buy a sprayer check out Northern Tool mail order for quality sprayers.

Have to hit all leaves whether you using p+d or remedy. Set of loppers small sprayer with 1/2 diesel half remedy insures no return. Make sure you pile or burn them in one place if you go this route they tend to bring 100 to their funeral for everyone you think you killed
