Default Looking for someone to spray palmetto

Iím looking to get my land sprayed for palmettos. I attempted to sort it out last year, but didnít have a lot of luck locally.

I have 12 acres in Brazoria that I want to spray with Cimarron Max to kill off some palmetto growth. There are large trees, so a large boom sprayer wonít work.

Does anyone know someone whoís got the equipment and willing to do it? Iím looking to get this done in September.

Pot some diesel on them individually and come back once they are dead and pull them up. That’s what I did periodically since I’ve had my property. Close to 15 acres now palmetto free.

Someone with a boom less spray right would work, I guess.

That would be a crap ton of diesel for my place. From research Cimarron kills them and gets them gone for good at a reasonable price.

How did you apply it to your palmettos?

I'd suggest cutting them at the base and spraying your herbicide on the cut stem. Much less spraying, and they'll be easier to monitor and re-treat through the fall.

My mom has 6 acres in Brazoria. We did the same thing when I was growing up. Still no palmetto. I hated those things.

So a boom sprayer won't work because there are too many trees. What about an ATV / UTV boom sprayer? You'd have to make sure you could drive a consistent speed to properly calculate the application rate, but it is easy enough to do.
