Wild grapes - Help they are killing my trees!

15 years ago

Hi! I'm a new poster here, though I've enjoyed the advice of others over the last few years. I own a 20+ acre property that is mostly forest, old orchard, and overgrown fields. Wild grape vines criss-cross everywhere and engulf whatever is reachable by them, including my precious apple trees. I don't want to have to mow the whole place, but my last year's strategy of just snipping the vines back worked for, oh, a few months. I guess I'll have to resort to chemicals. Any advice on what to use (plus how, when, where, etc.) to beat back the creature? Or any non-chemical (but effective) suggestions?
