Answer: Pepper trees have become the nemisis of Florida. The seeds are spread by birds and they seem to be taking over in many sections of our state. <br><br>The only way I know to kill them is to cut them down. When the new growth starts, and while it is tender, apply Round-up to the new growth. Round-up may not be organic, but compared to other herbicides it is considered relatively safe and does not build up in the soil. I don't believe you will have any trouble with it getting into the river. Follow directions carefully on the container. You may need more than one application.<br><br>You could also check with Brevard Colunty Extension Service at (407)633-1702.
