The Q&A Archives: Roundup On Trees

Question: Can roundup be safely used around the base of fruit trees (apples, pears, plums) to kill the grass and weeds? Will it hurt the trees if I get it on the bark? The tree trunks are roughly one inch in diameter. thank you


Answer: When applying a nonselective herbicide it is best to avoid contacting plants you do not wish to kill. Take care to read and follow the label instructions carefully. For additional information about possible side effects you might wish to contact the manufacturer directly.
