weedkiller Hytrol

Lilian Haynes asked 13 years ago

We have bought an old school house with tall conifers on either side of the house. I sprayed the driveway with Hytrol for weeds and now it looks as though the tree nearest to it (about five feet away) has been affected… it has yellowing of the base of the leaves. Is it possible I am to blame for this? I am most concerned as these trees are at least 70 years old and 70ft in height! Is there anything I can do about it?Lilian

Hyrtrol would not be the cause of this yellowing, unless the chemical came into direct contatct with the foliage, which is possible if there was spray drift.

The yellowed foliage will probably go brown and fall as this is usually what happens with conifers, but this can happen for a number of reasons, including the natural aging of the tree.

Leave it be and make sure of no spray drift.
