Abstract
I spent several years in Colombia, South America, on my cattle ranch waging an expensive and losing war on the weed trees that infested the Guinea grass' pastures. I began ranching successfully only after I had first destroyed the weed trees with an intensive poisoning campaign, using the Cornell Tree Stabbing Tool, and then mechanized the cleaning of the small weeds with tractor-drawn brush cutters, which cleaned a 12 ft. wide swathe at Some 4 m.p.h.
