    What's the benefit of killing the willows? I know they suck up heaps of water

    Yeah I wouldn't talk about RC's either Woody. If you are going to nuke the place with a brew of chemicals, the last thing you want is paper work which pins it on you.
    Spraying it at night mightn't be a bad idea either.
    Overkill is still dead.

    Grey and Crack willows ultimately smother a previoudly healthy and diverse ecology.

    Willows are a shit of a tree, someone years ago thought it was great idea to plant them along water ways to stop bank erosion and hill sides to stop slips etc.
    They are for ever losing branches in the wind dropping on fences and and all the crap that falls from them ends up blocking up the rivers then sprouting up. They will eventually stuff a good water sauce
    And they are a mongrel tree to cut down

    Good rifle stock material when the tree gets on a bit though. And cricket bats for that matter.
