Recently my neighbor cut down a large tree in his yard. Most of the branches wound up in my yard, which they cleaned up nicely. Since then, my yard has been invaded with this tree-like weed. I has an awful smell when cut or pulled and it grows to about 6″ to a ft. in about a week or two. I have hundreds of sprouts in my yards and mowing them does nothing. They have a long straight root that is very hard to extract from the ground. Help, they are taking over my yard.
