Description

Here is some documentation on our champion (ugh) Ligustrum. Note the attempt at a composite panorama of this 60 ft tree (3rd image); I can't even photograph the whole tree from any one angle. Note also the size of the trunk at the bottom of that panorama. These images were taken just before I began the long process of cutting parts of this tree down. It's now Jan. 2019 and I have about 1/2 of the tree lopped off and will be girdling the remainder later this year.

Description

This is the same champion (invasive) privet tree that I previously documented here:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/19821907
The present observation documents the next phase of tree removal that I started in late August. You will see how I took my chainsaw and girdled the right hand trunk at about 3 and 4 ft above ground (where it was easy to reach with the chainsaw). I have subsequently sprayed and poured almost two quarts of concentrated vinegar on the exposed cut surfaces to destroy the vascular tissue above and below the cut. Time will tell if I have succeeded in killing this half of the tree.
(Removing this entire tree in one operation is not an option due to some particulars of it location and the danger of such an effort to surrounding native trees and vegetation.)

There was plenty of white snow-on-the-prairie around, but this was the only one I noticed with the purple-pink tint.
