Privet – Tools to Remove
Q: On your TV show you mentioned special tools to remove privet. I went to hardware stores and they hadn’t a clue what they were.
A: The tools were the Weed Wrench (www.weedwrench.com) and the Honeysuckle Popper (www.misterhoneysuckle.com). Both are large and heavy but they do a fantastic job removing invasive privet and bush honeysuckle. I think they should be purchased by neighborhood groups for park renovation and “lending” among friends. A couple of strong people can quickly clear a large area with one of these.
