Default Herbicide follow up after trimming?

Gonna trim some saplings and underbrush along the creek bank and wanna follow up with some herbicide to keep them from shooting back out later. Any recommendations of something that I can get easily and locally

Yeah but crossbow ain't cheap. Heard good stuff about weed whacker but I've never personally used it.

Whatever you chose I would definitely wait until they break out of dormancy so you get the best possible uptake otherwise you may be wasting your money. Probably an imazypyr or glyphosate based product should do the trick.

Yeah I'd wait until we are out of cold weather. Need some 80 degree days to get the most out of a herbicide. If you go glyphosate don't get cheap Walmart watered down stuff. Go to tractor supply and buy the concentrated jug.

I think most herbicides work when sprayed onto the greenery so that the plant then draws the poison into itself.
Maybe check the kill method on the label before purchasing

Planning on spraying fresh cut woody stumps. I think I've seen them use crossbow on large bay trees by just spraying a hatchet cut in the trunk.
